Live Connection

Matisyahu is rolling now, in a musical career that began in 2004.

That's why the rap-reggae-rock triple threat says he doesn't have a set pattern or schedule for how he works as an artist.

So far the 32-year-old artist has released three studio albums, plus multiple live releases and a remix record.

Bottomline: Josh Garrett

Louisiana music from Josh Garrett & the Bottomline is one of the highlights of this week’s shows. Garrett’s high-energy music is complete with horns and fueled by the Cajun and zydeco sounds of his Louisiana bayou home. Garrett’s music should appeal to fans of Tab Benoit’s swampy blues.
