5HEAD plays Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester, NY

 5Head show feels like an illegal party. Not the kind where the cops come because it's too loud, but the kind that the government might try to ban because it's too much fun. With seemingly boundless energy, they dish out fiercely solid rhythm section grooves underneath traditionally catchy ska guitar stabs, all while sometimes sweet and sometimes red hot horn harmonies duke it out with front man Rob Reed's freight train inspired vocals.

Performing with 5HEAD in Rochester, NY September 15th, 2017. 

A 5Head show feels like an illegal party. Not the kind where the cops come because it's too loud, but the kind that the government might try to ban because it's too much fun. With seemingly boundless energy, they dish out fiercely solid rhythm section grooves underneath traditionally catchy ska guitar stabs, all while sometimes sweet and sometimes red hot horn harmonies duke it out with front man Rob Reed's freight train inspired vocals.
