The Slow Natives are an original reggae band from Upstate New York dedicated to providing positive conscious reggae vibes for the body, mind, and soul. Unafraid to be political but in the same token unafraid to write from the heart, The Slow Natives speak to the gamut of human experience. The Natives formed in June of 2006 and within two months traveled to play the island of Puerto Rico. With only a little over a year to their age they've performed at festivals in New York and New England. They also performed as the supporting band to Maxi Priest, the greatest selling Reggae artist alive, for his concert at Higher Ground Music Hall in Burlington, VT. This past summer the Natives played at events such as the Vermont Roots Reggae Festival, the We Be Jammin' Festival of Maine, Reggae On the Ridge in New York and others. On December 1st, 2007, Slow Natives delivered a powerful set in NYC for the Original Sessions: National Band Search Competition. Since then they have moved through to the 3rd round putting them in prime position to succeed. Tribe has regularly performed their serious and comforting vibes from their home town of Plattsburgh, New York and surrounding areas. While in Puerto Rico, the Natives played for members of internationally renowned Puerto Rican musical groups such as Puya; Sonic Bodega; Celestina Robot and others. Consistently innovating and working hard at perfecting their serious, original Reggae groove, the Slow Natives have proved to be a pleasant surprise to musicians and music-lovers everywhere. The Slow Natives write all original material to spread socially conscious messages through its ground-shaking musical pieces, and has never failed to move, awaken and please all that attend.
