About High Ceiling (Band)

High ceiling is the perfect live band for any event desiring a positive atmosphere with music the crowd will dance to, and talk about. The band performs more than 50 shows a year and regularly plays in front of large audiences of 200-500 people. For a small additional cost, the band can also provide a high-quality sound system and intelligent light show, both adequate for crowds up to 500 people.

Please check out high ceiling's youtube channel (youtube.com/highceilingmusic) where you will find videos of live performances; also featured in these videos are the band's light show.

Here is a short bio and description of high ceiling's career and the style of music they play:

As a staple of the northwest music scene, Washington, High Ceiling has played many shows alongside some of the biggest names in jam-rock and reggae, including John Brown's Body, and Garaj Mahal. When High Ceiling formed in 2004, the group had an early love and admiration for roots reggae music and also the jazz-influenced musicianship, improvised playing, and eclectic sound of bands in the jam scene.

Through their years of continued musical study and the growth that comes from playing music together week after week, year after year, the group's playing evolved until they were writing songs in a style truly all their own; a unique fusion of reggae, funk, and trance music with unpredictable instrumental tangents.

Andrew Frey of Maximum Ink Music Magazine describes High Ceiling's music as “easy flowing reggae escapades that ascend into effervescent jams and rootsy rock anthems. Fundamentally joyful, this Washington act lyrically takes time to delve into socio/political topics of relevance, uplifting, conscious, and adventurous are all good words to describe the band's music, especially in a live setting.

In concert, High Ceiling hits hard instrumentally with a heavy dose of deep bass, percussive reggae grooves, and improvised sections where the group creates layers of live dub, danceable drum and percussion rhythms, or epic guitar driven climaxes.
