Xcorps TV Presents The Late Ones band Jamming at the PLPCC Party
Xcorps TV joined the fun at the February 19, 2017 “PROP 215 Aftermath Party” held in San Diego at the PLPCC.org Patient Consumer CO-OP where a super lineup of musical artists performed that included Pato Banton, Don Carlos, E.N Young, Simple Creation along with The Late Ones featured in this video.
The Late Ones - Born in Gardena, California and now based in Hawaii brothers Tui Avei (Lead vocals), and Tau Avei (Vocals), along with cousin Josh Brunson (Vocals) are the voices.
Built on a roots reggae foundation with influences from various genres like Hip-hop, R&B, and jazz, The Late Ones’ unique blend of style, and smooth harmony shapes a youthful, yet old school reggae vibe.
The Late Ones harness something undeniably special. Rooted in Samoan culture, and complimented by the group’s African American heritage, the familial bond between the three members transcends throughout the group’s conscious lyrics and catchy melodies.
The name “The Late Ones” pays tribute to all of the late and great revolutionaries who have come and gone like Bob Marley, Tupac, Jimi Hendrix, Steve Biko, John Lennon and also present day legends including Jurassic 5, Steel Pulse, Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul just to name a few.
It is the fusion of each revolutionary story, struggle, and message that inspires and resonates with The Late Ones' own story, struggle, and love for all genres of music. That is the “L81Z” sound.
In late 2014, The Late Ones recorded their debut EP at Sea Major Seven Studio in Honolulu, HI with Producer/Engineer Noah Cronin (Sammy J) and producers Lapana Ieriko and Klandon Fetaui. The Late Ones debut EP Revelate was released on May 5, 2015 via online digital outlets and peaked at number three on the iTunes reggae charts in the first week of the release.
