Promoters, venues, and fans alike are catching the fire of this Southern California Rock Reggae posse. With soulful melodies, pounding bass lines, and Hip Hop background vocals, experiencing the passion and authenticity of a Dominic Balli live show will leave you sonically satisfied in more ways than one. However, the sound of Dominic Balli doesn't simply boast creative and truly genuine musicality, but hard hitting, and transparently honest, lyrics of freedom, hope, and love.
In 2007 the band played at California's largest free festival, opened for Ziggy Marley and took the second place prize at Southern California's Battle of the Bands hosted by BB King's Blues Club in Hollywood.
