Hiram Broyls III.,
"Mystic Man" a native of Chicago establishes the hard core Reggae bottom that can be felt deep within ones soul. Hiram says, "I am of the ancient order of the Nya Binghi like Jesus, King David and Solomon, therefore; when I use my instrument I make it convey their "Rootical" messages in an X DUB FACTOR style JAH Know!"

Lead guitarist, Michael Ross from Evanston, Illinois exhibits virtuosity and style as he articulates intricate solos on the guitar. His rifs are clean and smooth with just the right touch of the Bluesy flavors that are characteristic in reggae music. Mike feels that Reggae is a remedy for the Blues.

Muntheru Saadiq Mujaahid Shah is the drummer and driving force behind the band. Born in Hope, Arkansas under his Christian family name Warner Raymond Bernard Shaw Jr., believes that the Will of Allah must prevail, and that no matter what you pursue in life you should remain focused on it's Divine Purpose.

Percussionist Ras Daniel Hernandez from Panama, Central America sings vocals, plays the Funde' drum, electric and acoustic Bass founded the Livity Nyahbinghi Choir to spread the message of Rastafari to all Jah people. He helps to maintain the positive spiritual balance in the heart and soul of Roots Vibration.

He further honed his skills while serving in the U.S. Military, freelancing in funk and jazz bands. Each note that he plays and sings is resonant with wisdom, compassion and culture.
