Live Series: The Green – Drum and Bass Line (Aswad cover)

Patrick H. and his wife Susan are serious supporters of live reggae music, especially throughout the state of Colorado. As a longtime contributor to the taper community, Patrick can be found at reggae concerts in venues like Fox Theatre, Cervantes, and The Gothic, planted near FOH with his recording gear. With the bands’ permission he has documented dozens and dozens of live shows and posted them freely for anyone with an internet connection to enjoy on

Earlier this month Patrick recorded The Green live at The Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO. During the show, The Green played a rendition of Aswad’s “Drum and Bass Line”; I could not ask for a better tune to feature as the debut of our new Rootfire Live Series. We are grateful for Patrick and Susan’s continued support of the scene, and for providing a well documented gateway to the live music we love.

Recorded live February 3, 2015 at Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO, during The Green’s Chocolates & Roses Tour.
