Three Legged Fox
Supporting Acts: Natural Vibrations, Three Legged Fox Pato Banton
To Pato Banton, music seems to be more of a spiritual journey than a just a musical destination. To sit and spend even a moment in the presence of this powerful man's music is what many Pato-ites have considered to be life saving. Which should make him happy since he has stated that his main quest is to bring positivity to the masses. This is what he seems to have done. Pato's story is one of change and rebirth. Pato went from being a 9 year old "lookout" at illegal parties for his father to being honored at the Reggae Hall Of Fame, the BBC's Lifetime Achievement Award as well as many other honorable achievements for his acts of altruism in the world. Pato gives the gift of music and lyrical genius to his fans, as well as a prayer circle after his show where fans get the opportunity to share stories of their lives and how Pato inspired them to "Stay Positive & Never Give In." Pato plays music, but the ripples set in motion from the message of his music is strong enough to change lives Mike Pinto
Mike Pinto will take to the road on the Truthful Lies Tour with his full band in support of his forthcoming LP of the same name. The tour starts on May 16 in Long Beach, CA, making 48 stops (with more dates being added) across the nation. Pinto and his band (Mike Hatton on bass, Brian Daggett on drums, Max O'Leary on trumpet and Jon Cestero on tenor sax) are gearing up for the tour and anticipation levels are already high. "There is a garnered respect for the acoustic styles and narrative characteristics of Mike Pinto’s music, an attribute showcased in his forthcoming record." - Aaron Solomon, ThePier.org. This will be his largest headlining tour to date, and it includes stops at Cali Roots Festival and the Rockin' Roots Festival. Pinto and his band are ready to throw everything into it to make it a summer to remember. Joining Mike Pinto on the tour will be Hawaiian sons Natural Vibrations, and Philly's Three Legged Fox, making this a standout tour for the reggae, funk, rock and roots circuits. Truthful Lies is set for release on May 14th; it will be Pinto's fifth release, following up Little District (2005), Mike Pinto (2007), Everything I Got (2009) and The West is Still Wild EP (2012). Guest Appearances on Truthful Lies include a stellar lineup of musicians, including: Junior Marvin (Bob Marley), Jesse Wagner and Roger Rivas (The Aggrolites), Micah Brown, George Laks (Lenny Kravitz), Chuck Treece (Bad Brains, G Love, McRad). The album, recorded mostly at Soundmine Studios, East Stroudsburg, PA, and is being produced by Dan Malsch (The Misfits), Chuck Treece and Mike Pinto, as well as some tracks by Lew Richards at 17th Street Studios in Costa Mesa, CA. The album will contain up to 17 tracks, 16 of which are previously unreleased. The album art, which is revealed in the tour poster, was created by Jimmy Ovadia out of Ocean Beach, San Diego. It was designed to have an ethereal spin to it, while being boldly impressionistic, ala Van Gogh. Mike Pinto gave his personal insight as to what to expect from the album: “Truthful Lies is going to have all different genres, including reggae, folk, rock n’ roll, early funk, and more. I'm looking forward to collaborating with several artists on this disc. There’s definitely going to be a mix of my old style and as well as getting dynamic with a transition to other new genres as well. I feel it's my best and most diverse material to date, and I can't wait for people to hear it."
