Rising out of the post Garcia Dead head and Reggae scenes of the late 90s Green Machine's constantly evolving sound has found its way into the hearts of music lovers everywhere. After years of experimentation with all most every genre they have come up with a unique sound that can only be described as reggadelic jam jazz. Tina Avila's powerful bass and vocals,Mars Copland's solid in the groove Reggae drums, and Chris Avila's Skankin Guitarand Justin Good Rich's Groovy synth line are complemented by the Rasta Chants of Featured performer Ras Horace .Green Machines Progressive message and solid grooves have landed them spots opening for the likes of Don Carlos ,Eek- A -Mouse, Skatalites, Pato Banton, The Meliodians and Isaac Halie Selassie. If you get chance check out a Gm show its truly a feast for the eyes ears and soul
"Mix one part roots riddims, a cup of Jefferson airplane, two tablespoons of up-in-the-hills nyahbingh filtered through the suburbs, a pinch of wailing sax, five magic mushrooms and a dash of youthful enthusiasm, stir progressively and you might approximate the recipe for green machine's lions eyes (earth juice) -did i forget the John Conkaroo Root? Psychedelic grunge guitar interspaced with crisp fluid leads, one-drop drums and earthy vocals shared among the band whose female component (Tina Avila) lifts the spirit into otherworldly with ease ..s like"searching""chemical nation" and"property of the state ." she also plays bass! this one has a nice overall feel and lacks the cliche-ridden posturing of some "local band" reggae."
