Mike Love & The Full Circle with Dub Inc (from France)

Wednesday, June 1, 2022 - 8:00pm
Event Time: 
June 1, 2022 - 8:30pm
Cost: 
$16 Advance, $20 Day of Show

On Wednesday, June 1, the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes Mike Love & the Full Circle back to the WOW Hall along with special guests Dub Inc. (from France).  This event has been rescheduled for 2020.

Mike Love is a musician devoted to revolution through sound. Born in O’ahu, Hawai’i to a family of musicians, Mike has used music as a conversation for as long as he can remember. He comes from a unique convergence of influences, all bound by their ambition to inspire positive change in the world.

Love releases his music independently on his own Love Not War Records label, and his sound, while rooted in the spirituality and message-based music of roots reggae, fuses a variety of influences including progressive and classic rock, soul, blues, flamenco, jazz, classical, and more.

Mike started playing guitar at the age of 15, and soon after began performing live.  Furthering his talents as a composer/lyricist and arranger, he then fronted the 10-piece band Dubkonscious, entering into his first studio experience as producer on the band's album At the Foot of the Mountain.  He then started to hone what has now become an internationally recognized, power-packed, one-man-band style show, using looping, multiple instruments and an array of different vocal techniques and musical styles to create a full and powerful sound that belies the fact that he is on stage alone . His solo performances have since taken him to some of the largest stages in the world.

December 2012 saw the release of Love’s first solo album, critically acclaimed The Change I'm Seeking. The album features his hit track Permanent Holiday, which went viral on YouTube and currently has close to 30 million views [2021], expanding his fan base to the furthest corners of the globe.

With the release of his second album Love Will Find a Way and follow-up companion album Love Overflowing, Love solidified the bond with his fans, exhibiting the evolution they have come to expect from his music. He has performed in the US, South and Central America, Canada, Europe, East Asia, Australia and New Zealand, both solo and with his band The Full Circle, sharing songs of wisdom and the desire to instill positive change. 

Love is currently working on his highly anticipated fourth album, with singles set to release some time in 2021.

 

DUB INC.

 

Originally from Saint-Etienne in France's industrial heartland, Dub Inc fuse classic roots reggae with dub, dancehall, ska, hip-hop and African influences. They create an intoxicating musical hybrid with highly charged and socially conscious songs which have earned them cult status in their native France.  



Their wild, high-octane live performances led to an ever expanding and loyal fan base. With a fierce independent spirit and away from the media spotlight, Dub Inc have become the most successful reggae band playing in Europe today, and are now a fixture at major festivals across the world, having already appeared at Paleo, Francofolies, WOMAD and headlined Rototom Sunsplash or Summerjam.  



Charismatic lead singers Hakim "Bouchkour" Meridja and Aurelien "Komlan" Zohou sing in English, French and Kabyle (a Berber language native to Algeria). Backed by deep rolling bass (Moritz Von Korff), keyboards (Frédéric Peyron and Idir Derdiche), guitar (Jérémie Grégeois) and drums (Grégory "Zigo" Mavridorakis), Bouchkour and Komlan convey strong positive messages through their striking vocals creating music with a truly universal appeal.  



Since forming in 1998, Dub Inc have produced seven studio albums, two EP's and two live albums. Their new album Millions (2019, Diversité) perfectly embodies the potent combination of infectious energy, distinctive melody and engaged, combative lyrics.

Rude Boy Story is the first documentary film released about this band.
