Passafire: Since its formation in 2003, the reggae-rock band Passafire has captivated people everywhere with their unique, magnetic style and fresh original songs. Managing to combine roots-reggae with contemporary rock, the group has gained a reputation for solid, stirring live performances at packed venues like the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach (SC), The Freebird in Jacksonville (FL), Marrz Theatre in Wilmington (NC), and The Lions Den in NYC. In a little over three years Passafire has gained a broad and ever growing fan base rooted in the southeast US, and continues to tour heavily to promote themselves and expand the reaches of their music. The immense versatility and depth of this group is reflected in their well crafted songs which exemplify a new direction for modern reggae music. Because of this, Passafire is able to reach a broader mainstream audience. The group is comprised of four members who have all hailed from different places in the US and abroad. Ted Bowne, the lead singer and guitarist from Salisbury Maryland, fronts the band, and has written many of their successful songs to date. Keyboard player Adam Willis, who grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, as well as in Denmark, also contributes as a songwriter and back-up vocalist. Nick Kubley, from Plymouth, Indiana is the drummer who honed his skills in live performance throughout high school before moving to Georgia. He is one half of the rhythm section along with younger brother Will Kubley on bass, who continues to impress audiences with his virtuoso technique which extends to numerous other instruments. Passafire has worked diligently to establish themselves as the southeast's foremost reggae act, and is quickly becoming a recognized name.
