Synrgy at Ventura Surf 'n' Suds!

SYNRGY is a Soul Reggae Rock Group known for high energy live performances, consistently catchy tunes, and their tour heavy lifestyle.

With three full length albums (Live in Love, Synrgy Self Titled, and Dream On), two eps (Lost and Found and Summertime) , and a very anticipated collaboration album in the works that will be mixed and mastered at Imperal Sounds Studios by EN Young of Tribal Seeds, SYNRGY continues to provide their loyal audiences with a very diverse musical catalog.

Their sound spans from traditional Roots Reggae to a smooth Soul Crooner's style that gives them an orginal flare while still being able to maintain the fundamentals of the Reggae music. Add some Rocksteady/ Ska-esque influence, and some contemporary tones, and you have yourself a good idea of what to expect from SYNRGY.

They got roots that span from the deserts of Arizona to the hills of Humboldt. From the Oregon Forests to So Cal Coastlines. Originating in Flagstaff AZ in 2007, the group has relocated several times. In 2008, the band moved to Humboldt County in Northern California. In 2011, they made another move up to Ashland in Southern Oregon. In 2015, the band is gearing up for another move to San Diego CA to continue to spread their uplifting musical message.

They've toured all over the United States, having played hundreds of shows in over 19 states. They've played with bands like SOJA, Rebelution, Steel Pulse, Katchafire, The Slackers, The Expanders, Indubious The Simpkin Project, Jah Sun, and countless other artists.

SYNRGY continues to become a household name in the genre as one of the hardest working Reggae groups that are "On the Rise."

Felie and the Lemonshakers - Carpinteria Surf 'n' Suds

It was the fall of 2014 and still pretty hot in Los Angeles, California when they all met for the first time at music school. Making original songs was the main focus for a class called ‘Original Project’. Randomly, they chose each other to form a band without knowing if the final result would work out. But in one week they made "Can´t Stop” and decided to continue jamming!

Afro-Swedish, Spanish, Malaysian-American and Chilean are the nationalities of Feli and The LemonShakers.  They define themselves as Indie-Tropical. In other words, Indie-Pop + World Music + Soul. Or, if you prefer, a mixture between Vampire Weekend + Florence and the Machine + Lianne La Havas. Their music works perfectly for real crazy dancers as well as people who like to snap their fingers and clap their hands.

Their first EP – Naïve-, released summer 2016, was received very well by music blogs and radio stations alike (in the U.S., France, U.K. and Spain) as well as by those who saw them performing live at SoFar Sounds LA, Ivar Theater, Greek Theater, Make Music Pasadena Festival, Youbloom L.A. Festival, and else where!

Winners of Converse’s Rubber Tracks contest, they got to record new shaken-fruit at the amazing studio The Fortress in Downtown Los Angeles.  Currently, Feli and The LemonShakers continue to work on new and exciting music while revolutionizing the way music is experienced through their live performance.  Being from all over the world, the easiest way to find them is online via Spotify, iTunes, Soundcloud, Facebook, and Instagram.
