"Water for Roots. Love of Reggae. Fire for Rock." That is the ambiguous, stoned-sounding creed of Seattle-based world reggae rock band Kore Ionz, and on Saturday, they're bringing their beats to Boise. Comprised of members from five continents, Kore Ionz hopes to use their music to spread the message of compassion and a love for all cultures. Fresh off a busy summer of touring and music festivals, Kore Ionz will continue their journey here at Reef, promoting their album Half-hour Revolution. The band has promised to donate half of their CD proceeds to Seattle nonprofit The Service Board, a program designed to support mentorship and empowerment programs for youth in marginalized communities. Having shared the stage with acclaimed artists such as Bob Marley's Original Wailers and the Boogie Brown Band, Kore Ionz is ready to deliver some feel-good grooves and showcase their fusion of roots reggae, rock and world rhythms.
