Why The Festy choose them:
We feel like GPGDS is to Reggae music what the Infamous Stringdusters are to Bluegrass music. Respect for the tradition while pushing the boundaries, there’s not a better band out there to bring the Reggae to the Festy! –ANDY FALCO, Infamous Stringdusters
“The band’s five masterful musicians weave layers of complex music within a reggae framework and may be one of the most diverse bands in the genre.” – JamBase
“Giant Panda sounds more than at home live onstage and the band knows it, filling the live set with musical segues and extended, improvised jams throughout the night. This spontaneous approach to a live performance, along with instrumental excursion, comes as no surprise considering the band has played 500 shows in the past three years alone.” –Reggae Movement
