ABOUT THE PERFORMER
Forged out of a mutual love for classic reggae music, this 11 piece band, led by Dylan Savage of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, is now performing their roots sound all over NY state and beyond.
The band was formed in Rochester, NY through weekly jams that served as musical therapy for one of it’s founding members Dave Bernis. The Medicinals play in Dave’s memory.
The Medicinals have had the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as: Julian Marley, The Wailers (4x), Turkuaz, Lettuce, Barika, Double Tiger, Roots of Creation, Kevin Kinsella, and Root Shock.
The Medicinals current line up features members from these original acts: Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad, RootsCollider, Mosaic Foundation, Personal Blend, Hybrid Beats, The Level 7 Experience and the Able Bodies.
As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.
As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.
Hang in there and stay healthy.
