Zeme Libre & Jason Ward (Rustic Overtones) & The West End Mules


Join us for a heavyweight double bill with two of Portland ME's best horn driven indie acts.  ZEME LIBRE is a New England based band that has quickly garnered a reputation for its unique high energy blend of Afrobeat, reggae, ska, and funk. In a short three years, the band has played well over 100 shows and festivals throughout New England all the while continuing to grow an increasingly devoted fan base. Consisting of veteran performers from around the country, members of  ZEME LIBRE have played and shared the stage with such great acts as:  Michael Franti and Spearhead, Culture, Toots and the Maytals, Black Uhuru, Wyclef Jean, The English Beat, Burning Spear, De La Soul, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Wailers, The Skatalites, Bim Skala Bim, Ozomatli,  Lee "Scratch" Perry, Orgone, and Yellowman.  Having released two albums and a third due out for Spring 2019, the band’s musical amalgamation of Afro-fusion, hard tinged reggae and funk continues to pack a wall of sound that is sure to impress. Whether on a stage at a local club or a high-profile festival, ZEME LIBRE continues to push musical boundaries with a passion and energy that never fails to get the crowd moving and dancing.  JASON WARD (& The West End Mules) is best known as the baritone sax player for the legendary Rustic Overtones.  He has toured the country for decades, recorded with the likes of David Bowie, and was an Arista recording artist.  Recently Jason released his solo album, The Ultimate, to wide critical acclaim.    Don't miss this monster bill!  The show is ALL AGES!
