Press release excerpt from Ingenious Concepts:
“Ingenius Concepts & Live Nation-New England has done it again! Similar to Buju Banton’s first live concert at Avalon Ballroom; over the weekend John Brown’s Body (America’s #1 Reggae Band) along with support SOJA & Pressure Cooker achieved their highest ticketed headlining show by selling out at the new HOB Boston. This was an incredible homecoming for one of Reggae’s best bands.”
“The brand new HOB 1st floor and 2nd level was packed to capacity with an enthusiastic, energetic crowd all night. Simulated crowd surfing and a friendly semi-mosh pit were all apart of this amazing night of Roots Rock Reggae at the new HOB. Checkout www.bobbyshakes.com for photos and all the sights of this amazing night of Roots Rock Reggae.”

Pressure Cooker – What She Wants
Posted in Reviews on April 26th, 2009 by Gabe
Like fine wine Pressure Cooker has proven to get better with each release and this album is no doubt their best yet. Picking up where they left off on Future’s History their rhythm section is tighter, the horns are brighter, and the vocals are on fire. I had no idea what to expect when I popped this CD in but I was excited. I pressed the play button, crack goes the drums, in rolls that warm bass line and smooth horn arrangement. Turn that up louder my ears say! Wow, listen to Craig ride that riddim like Toots with those hooks and soul in his voice, listen to that production, alright this is gonna be good I think as I turn up the song “What She Wants” even louder.

Pressure Cooker will be kicking off the show at the House of Blues, Boston this Saturday April 25th. The doors are 7pm and Pressure Cooker hits the stage first at 8pm in support of John Brown’s Body and SOJA. Get there early!
