The FunDubMentals formed from the natural growth of Sunday Dub sessions held at the drummer’s house on Green Lake in Northern Michigan. The FunDubMentals first public showcase was at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor with fellow Michigan reggae bands.
The FunDubMentals have risen over the last six years and have played in venues all over the midwest and many Michigan music festivals; Kalamazoo Islandfest, Earthwork Harvest Festival, Rootenany, Beaver Island Music Festival, Farmfest, and Dunegrass. The FunDubMentals have shared the stage with the talented and inspiring Sierra Leon Refugee All Stars at the Traverse City Opera House, the legendary Wailers at the Rave Eagles Club in Milwaukee, and backed Ghanaian reggae artist Kofi Sankofa at the Hash Bash Afterbash Reggae Festival in Ann Arbor.
