THE WELL: Reggae-inspired hard hitting dance music. Since 2000, they have been part of Bostons rapidly growing music scene. The Wells debut album, O.N.V. (2003), features members of John Browns Body and State Radio. Vocalist Jimmy Trapella captivates audiences with his charismatic presence and his lyrics enlighten people with positivity. The musics driving force is the drum and bass. This, combined with melodies on keys and guitar, knits the whole band together. They were winners of Emersons 2004 Live Music Week competition.
