Who could have predicted the early reggae and rocksteady music revival that took hold in California over the last two years? Not that we're complaining: Bands regularly take the stage to perform vintage Jamaican sounds from an era when the island's music incorporated American R&B, funk, and psychedelic pop, and used Hammond organs for its unique shuffle rhythms. Former Oranger member Bob Reed leads Titan Ups, a seven-member outfit that plays both originals and covers of songs from Jamaican acts like the Maytals, the Pioneers, and the Techniques. Franco Nero and Wicked Mercies offer vintage Jamaican ska and retro-fueled Stax-era funk, respectively, yanking audience members out of their seats whenever they play live.
