BURNT with Dan Martin and the Noma Rocksteady Band

May 31 @ 7:00 pm

BURNT music is a psychedelic and soulful blend of reggae, ska, punk and hip-hop sounds. Inspired by DIY artist subculturethis California based band has independently produced 11 albums of original music.

Dan Martin has been writing songs and performing in bands since 16 years of age, forming his first band with a group of friends upon moving to Sonoma, CA from the mountains of Wyoming. Born to a musical family, he was surrounded by song from the get-go. Dan began in his youth gigging on the ska and punk scene at such places as the famed Phoenix Theater in Petaluma, CA and helping friends found and run a DIY venue known as “The Shop” in the industrial side of Sonoma in a converted warehouse space. This experience proved invaluable and gave Dan insight into the DIY music scene as a performer and promoter. As he began college, Dan took to studying drums and recording arts in Sacramento, CA. These studies led him down a path of rhythm and song-craft, and ultimately ignited his love of early reggae and ska music and the raw energy and feel of the early recordings. In 2009, Dan began performing locally as a solo artist, refining his sound at open mics and backyard jams and creating a local buzz with his honest songwriting and upbeat feel.
