Album Notes
After coming together almost six months prior, Tripledub played their inaugural show in the first week of 2002, in San Luis Obispo CA. Immediately, this powerful trio began creating music from influences across reggae, funk, rock, and hip hop, while earning respect from a wide range of music lovers through an aggressive schedule of live performance. With the new debut album Here in California now available, Tripledub seems to be at the top of their game.
Tripledub has been blessed with unprecedented progress around their local club circuit, thanks to hard work, experience, and passion for music. Within nine months of getting started, this band had already played their own full, two-set show at San Luis Obispo's premier venue to a huge crowd of carousing patrons.
Since then, Tripledub has become a local party favorite on California's central coast. "The whole idea was to have fun and play gigs," says drummer Brent Vander Weide, "but when you see a club full of people dancing and singing along with your music, the purpose becomes more meaningful."
Tripledub has performed on a variety of California stages; from Winston's of San Diego up to the San Simeon Reggae Festival. The trio has shared these stages with Long Beach Shortbus, Eek-A-Mouse, The Expendables, The Upbeat, Psydecar, Boom Shaka, The Messengers, Sambada, A.L.O., and Elijah Emmanuel & The Revelations (among others).
Tripledub's success is no accident. The band's music is a fresh blend of reggae, funk, rock and hip hop that moves toddlers, teens, and old-timers alike. The band names Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Israel Vibration as influence right along with Sublime, Jane's Addiction, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Actually, the list of influences they would name is too long to print, but hopefully you get the point.
Tripledub is comprised of guitarist Chris Johnson, drummer Brent Vander Weide and bassist Scott Applegate. Johnson carries the majority of vocal responsibilities with some help from his drummer. On occasion, the band welcomes steel drummer Ross McGinnis to the stage, and have "utilized his amazing talent" for the CD as well. The new album, Here In California, also features performances by Tre Hardson (The Pharcyde), George Pajon Jr. (The Black Eyed Peas), Chuck Prada (The Black Eyed Peas, Robert Walter's...) and others.

BUY IT!!!!


Great Stuff
I love this CD--it's one of those where you can put on the whole album from start to finish and every song is good. Especially like "Damn Right," the second track.

Doug Cash

Genuine grooves for the soul!
The track Step Up sends a slow summer jolt up your spine and leaves a smile on your soul.Professionally arranged and produced, this vibe is universal and for all seasons.

Doug Cash


The steel drums are what makes this album for me. I appreciate the reggae sound and the smoothness of the music that drifts from my speakers.

Karl Stupnik

This is the first album I purchase and was very impressed with the performance of Tripledub. The first track Step Up starts the album off right. Too bad your first album "PreGame" is hard to come by. I need that for my collection. Good luck to you guys and look forward to seeing you guys jam at the Staples Center one day!


is there an instrumental version?
i really liked the music but i thought i was buying a reggae cd. the vocalist is not my style, although i do believe the album is well produced and every member has talent, the message is not of my interest.

Shane MacDonald

This CD is one of the best I've heard of this genre. I have developed into quite the fan. As was said before, the first track, "Step Up" starts this thing off right, giving all the songs a feeling of nothing but cool summer relaxation. You should hear them Live.


awesome-great for beer drinking with friends
