Forged out of a mutual love for classic reggae music, this 11 piece band fronted by Dylan Savage of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, is now performing their roots sound all over NY state and beyond.
The band was formed in Rochester, NY through weekly jams that served as musical therapy for one of it’s founding members Dave Bernis. The Medicinals play in Dave’s memory.
The Medicinals feature current members of these upstate NY bands: Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad, RootsCollider, Mosaic Foundation, Personal Blend, The Level 7 Experience, Hybrid Beats, Subsoil, Eli Flynn & the Everymen, and Sol Vibration.
The Medicinals have had the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as: The Wailers, Turkuaz, Barika, Danielle Ponder & the Tomorrow People, Double Tiger, Roots of Creation, Kevin Kinsella's Bead & Bone, and Root Shock.
