You say you want a revolution, well you know, The Beatles can help you out there. You say you want Rebelution, head down to Les Schwab Amphitheater on Sunday and get ready to “Settle Down Easy” (that’s the fourth track on the band’s latest album, last year’s “Free Rein,” by the way). Since 2004, the California quartet has ridden the wave of American reggae rock with an eye toward the original Jamaican roots traditions laid down in the ’60s and ’70s. This comes across in the skanking rhythms and tight melodies of “Free Rein,” which features collaborations with Jamaican producers Don Corleon (Sean Paul) and Winta James (Damian Marley). Still, this is a band unafraid to do its own thing, from the R&B inflections on songs such as “Patience” to lead singer Eric Rachmany’s earnest croon (there isn’t a fake accent to be heard here, something far too many American reggae bands try to ape).
Rebelution, with Collie Buddz, Durand Jones & The Indications, DJ Mackle: 6 p.m. Sunday, doors open at 4:30 p.m.; $37.50 plus fees in advance, $40 at the gate; Les Schwab Amphitheater, 344 Shevlin Hixon Drive, Bend, bendconcerts.com or 541-312-8510.
