"The Cosmic Roots" have a sound that could be best described as "Roots Rock" a blend of rock, reggae, dance and bluegrass. "TCR' covers a large list of artists such as Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, Led Zepplin, Santana, Foo FIghters, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, Steve Miller and many more. The band can also play a large mix of catchy and creative original music. TCR offers a full on show complete with energetic performances of great tunes, plenty of big sound, dance and party lights as well. In addition to the normal set up consisting of lights, a full drum set, electric guitar and more. The Cosmic Roots also offers an "Acoustic Unplugged" set for a softer, warm full sounding show. This set is also ideal where a smaller set up area is required. The acoustic unplugged show features all acoustic instruments, hand drums and percussions.
The Cosmic Roots formed in the early months of 2011 when two old friends reconnected through a twist of musical fate. They were both members of their first group "High Fidelity" Which shared the stage with the likes of Incubus, and Young MC. After a short run members went their seperate ways, and pursued drastically different musical avenues. Now, through cosmic intervention, these two have geographically reconnected. With roots stemming from common ground, they have reconnected musically as well.
Jarret Kostrba lends a wide variety of sound and style to the mix. An inspired performer, his mandolin and guitar express his bluegrass and raggae influences. He also provides bluesy harmonica lines and tasteful back-up vocals.
Nathan North adds his spice to the mix with a soulful lead vocal track, and mesmorizing guitar riffs. He creates a diverse unique sound with a wide variety of influences ranging from rock to easy listening .
The Cosmic Roots functioned as a two piece acoustic duo until the guys decided they wanted more sound! (More Cowbell) That is when the bass stlyings of David Banuelos came into the mix. Dave's smooth, chest thumping and melodic bass style fit in perfect with 'TCR" With the addition of drummer Brandon Fisher The Cosmic Roots has officailly morphed into a 4 piece band!! With Brandon's groove-tastic tasty drum beats "TCR" has a well rounded full band sound.
