Pacific HighPacific High: Honky-Tonk Meets Reggae

Doors Open 8pm, show 9pm, $5 entrance!!

This home-grown Bellingham, WA band mixes outlaw country guitar riffs with the spiritual bent of old-school reggae. As fun to watch as they are to listen to, the six band members are 20-something to 40-something, playing a range of instruments from the bongos to the violin. They successfully mix the distinct, but surprisingly complimentary styles of honky-tonk and reggae with elements of blues and even the occasional tribal vocalization.

Pacific High grew from a community of good friends and children coming together over food and music in an eclectic Bellingham farmhouse with walls painted in every color. The band takes its name from the North Pacific high pressure system that chases the rain clouds away and reveals the sun. It represents the clarity of mind band leader Russ Riviere intends to bring to the present and to the band’s music.

Pacific High is working its way up through the Bellingham music scene and has played at venues including the Wild Buffalo and The Green Frog.
