Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad formed in 2001 in Rochester, NY, and quickly received praise for their intense live shows. Their shows commonly combined reggae rhythms with jamband aesthetics. The band’s sound is like no other, and is therefore as strangely awesome as their name. Mashing together roots music, reggae, and extended jam sessions, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad creates some of the most progressive sounding music of today. The band has gained much traction on the reggae charts by peaking at #5 on the Billboard Reggae Album chart with their third studio album In These Times. Then both their 2014 and 2016 albums, Steady and Make it Better reached #1 on the Billboard and iTunes reggae charts.
