Rehearsals is the page where our band members can get more details about our company and business. Focus is on our plans, whether rehearsals, bookings, or songs.

The major resources of Roots Vibration Reggae Band are its members. We are united as professional musicians to convey the message of Jah. "O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods." Psalms 96:1-4
Our mission is to inspire, motivate, and uplift all people who have an ear let them hear the sound vibration deep within the roots of their souls.
