Growing up in Santa Cruz, the four dubsmen of The Expendables had their worldview shaped by a laid-back combination of sun, sand, and surf rock. Since the beginning, listeners quickly have caught on to the feel-good vibes of the band, which self-released its first three albums and still managed to sell more than 40,000 copies without a record label or a door-to-door dub-rock salesmen. The band since has headlined venues across the country and released two more albums, The Expendables and Prove It!, with backing from Stoopid Records, the independent label of fellow California rockers Slightly Stoopid. Melding reggae, punk rock, and plenty of acoustic licks, the quartet labors tirelessly to prove that you actually can make a career out of kicking it.
Joining The Expendables on the road, Pacific Dub warms up the crowd with spacey melodies, infectious grooves, and conscientious lyrics that call for peace on earth and individual action. The title track of new release Tightrope reminds listeners that they “will see there may be some things to rely upon/When everything that feels right is wrong.”

Park City Live
Underneath Park City Live’s shimmering laser light system, a slew of musical acts shine. The energetic venue is equally at home pulsating with dance music or hosting a stripped-down acoustic show, beckoning a diverse crowd of music aficionados to its dynamic confines. But the venue didn't begin life as a haven for audiophiles and their ears. The historic Summit County War Veterans Memorial Building, completed in 1940 following a fire, was originally home to an American Legion room, rifle range, gymnasium, and the Boy Scouts. But by 1984, the entertainment needs of the city had changed, and the building began providing recreation of the more artistic variety. Today, the space serves as the home for Park City Live, as well as O’Shucks Bar & Grill and Rock ‘N’ Reilly’s Irish Pub.
