2022 PASSAFIRE Recap

2022 was our busiest year in a while! In the winter/spring, we toured with Tropidelic, Mike Pinto, Dubbest, Sensi Trails, Sierra Lane, Bikini Trill, Gary Dread, Rick Haze, & Dry Reef. In July, we played Guam for the first time alongside Jason J., John Dank Show, Pacific Dub, & more. We then played our first summer amphitheater tour with Iration, Atmosphere, The Grouch, & DJ Fresh. In the fall, we toured with Fortunate Youth & Joe Samba… then closed the year out with Tropidelic. Overall, it was a productive year. I’ve now played 1000+ shows w/ Passafire! I’m proud of everything we’ve accomplished since I joined the band in 2011. New album on the way in 2023!

2020 PASSAFIRE Recap

2020. What a weird year. Passafire started it off on several high notes playing shows, festivals, and our first time playing the U.S. Virgin Islands. The live music industry then came to a halt in March due to COVID-19. We still felt the need to stay busy.

Over the summer, we met up at Passafarm to write and record for our next album. In the fall, we rented out a venue and hired a full production team to host our first ever live stream ticketed event. Throughout the year, we released 2 new singles and contributed to 2 compilation albums. Despite our touring limitations, we still got things done. We’re hopeful for a more productive 2021!
