Summer might be slowly marching to a close, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it. The past week has been one of the warmest all year, and the tunes coming out of Stateline this Friday will only reinforce those summer vibes.

Iration brings its reggae-rooted sound to MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa’s outdoor amphitheater for what sounds like the perfect way to kick off the weekend.

Although the band formed in Isla Vista, California, it has ties back to the island … Hawaii, that is. With the exception of guitarist Micha Brown, all the members met while growing up in Hawaii. That upbringing, as the band’s “about” page online explains, definitely influenced the sound.

“These Hawaiian-bred musicians look forward to spreading their original sound and Aloha spirit all the while never forgetting to get a surf in when possible,” states the webpage.

Aside from Brown, who joined the band in 2014, the other members include: Joseph Dickens, drums; Joseph King, engineer; Cayson Peterson, keyboard/synth; Micah Pueschel, guitar/lead vocals; and Adam Taylor, bass.

The band has been touring across the U.S. since 2008, and during that time they’ve notched some pretty notable shows, including performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza.

Iration describes its sound as alternative/reggae.

“A deep-rooted reggae influence is fused with elements of rock and pop to create smooth original sounds,” state the about page.

Songs such as “Summer Nights” are like a kind of calming substance (what’s the word?) that puts you in a sunnier and more relaxed state of mind.

And it’s clear with the newest single “Chill Out,” released earlier this summer, that Iration is still enjoying creating good music.

Catch Iration at the MontBleu Outdoor Amphitheater Friday evening. Tickets are general admission and $40 a piece.
