Natty Nation is a Madison, Wisconsin based roots, rock, reggae group from the Heartland of America. The genre bending group is known throughout the world for how easily they weave conscious lyrics, heavy rock, dancehall, and dub into majestic, traditional roots reggae. With 'LIVE in Eau Claire' NATTY shows that they continue to carry the torch of the music that they introduced to the world back in 1995 that would inspire countless people to become one with the positive vibration, while dancing 'til their legs couldn't take no more! There was a particularly good vibe between the musicians and the crowd at this show (recorded at the Stones Throw in November of 2007), and the band was inspired to play long, extended dubtastic versions of the songs- stretching them to new heights not found on the studio versions. Natty Nation\'s unique roots rock and funky reggae enlighten and unifiy people from different cultures. They're on a journey and their mission is to spread the music and the word of JAH. NATTY's purpose is the elimination of negative vibration. The driving beat of Natty Nation will make you not only want to jump up and dance, but to listen to the message of the music. Natty Nation has been absorbing the heart breaking loss of band member Jeffrey Maxwell to cancer in late 2001. May he rest in the arms of the one, Most High, The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, H.I.M. Hailie Selasi I, JAH! Rastafari!!! Ever Living, Ever Faithful, Ever Sure!
