Rise up Is a roots rock reggae band from salinas, ca.

RISE UP is, according to Good Times: Santa Cruz, "a smoky blend of roots reggae with California attitude for a style that falls closer to Bob Marley than Sublime. In other words, genuine reggae." Since forming in the spring of 2016 RISE UP has been a force on the scene with infectious riddims interwoven with strong messages of consciousness and self-awareness. Pulling from a myriad of influences and musical backgrounds, RISE UP layers their own unique sound over the unmistakable power of a Roots Rock Reggae backdrop. RISE UP has shared stages with foundation Reggae legends such as the Wailing Souls, Half Pint, Michael Palmer, & Winston Jarrett; as well modern heavyweights of the genre such as Arise Roots, Josh Heinrichs & Skillinjah, & Through the Roots to name a few.

The core of RISE UP is: Chris Alcantara (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards), Steven Moreno (Bass, Vocals, Melodica) and Alex Cortez (Drums); but every show they are joined by different members of a consistent group of friends and session musicians who each bring a unique addition to RISE UP’s sound giving each show a different element to experience. You have seen or may see the following musicians performing live with RISE UP: Tone Limon (keys), Alejandro Gomez (guitar), Ruben Macias (guitar) & Justin Prouty (guitar).
