Wet City Rockers came in to existence when Micah Averiett set out on a mission to create a rootsy duby reggae band while living in the wonderful city of Seattle. Micah Averiett and Bill Patton, (who both played in a Reggae fusion band in 2002 called Jamaina Heights in George Town) started with a simple ad in the Seattle Stranger mag which brought in Daniel drummer and Norman Bass. They then created the first Wet City Rockers album in 2005, which was produced, directed and mixed by Micah Averiett. The album made a decent noise in the Reggae community worldwide. A few dozen shows, and a mini tour later the band dissolved due to the spider legs that all grew Indian chief heads and unfortunately wanted to walk different directions. Micah Averiett and Bill Patton went on to link up with other local musicians here in Seattle. After a few failed attempts they linked up with Ryan Bowering a solid drummer coming in from  the Canadian highlands. After a year of searching for a qualified bassy they happened across a Northern California bass player (Jarrett Mason) who moved up to Seattle for a change of pace and just so happened to be a perfect fit to complete Wet City’s rhythm section. They went on to link up with Tim Conroy a talented keyboard and trumpet player and friend of Jarrett Mason to complete the core of the band. Shortly after Brandon Hunter the young trombone player with soul from a previous life, joined in as well to make what is now the Wet City Rockers. Wet City Rockers has had the privilege in having many local talented musicians come through and be apart of this ever changing and growing Reggae movement in Seattle.   How would you describe the Wet City Rockers, you may ask? Think Reggae one drops with vocal harmonies, mild dreamy rhythmic guitar syncopation and intricate, secular but rootsy melodic phrasing. With influences from the dark side of roots and the positive soulful vocals of lovers rock. Bring the sensi and submerge your brain in to the sound of the Wet City Rockers.
