Now in its 16th year, the free outdoor live music program, The Sunset Concerts Series, overlooking the scenic valley continues with Jon Wayne and The Pain.

If Lee Scratch Perry and Deadmau5 died, went to heaven, and recorded an album with Bradley Nowell and Jerry Garcia, they’d end up with something like Jon Wayne and The Pain’s new full-length album Surrender. The latest release adds a bold fusion of jam and EDM to the Minneapolis trio’s signature sound: roots-infused reggae rock.


The trio’s previous release, Follow Through, teases with a few subtle, dark electronic elements. Until Surrender, Jon Wayne and The Pain’s sinister combination of organic drums and guitar with electronic bass and synths could only be heard if fans caught the band’s live act in clubs and festivals around the U.S. or sifted through bootleg uploads on You Tube. This the third full-length recording is full of electronic instrumentals that build from intrinsic dub loops (wait for the drop), before exploding into high-energy party anthems featuring intense vocals and powerful acoustic drums.

Pushing boundaries even further, Jon Wayne and The Pain inject roots, jam, and ska into the mix with sounds  band members Jon, Chuckie, and Teeto have grown to love while playing alongside some of the most influential musicians in the festival scene.

Complete with a sanctioned Grateful Dead cover and a festie-fan shout out track “Festival Friends,” JWP pays tribute to the jam scene in a big way.

Still in tune with the sound that made fans rush to see Jon Wayne and The Pain in the band’s early days, heartfelt reggae-rock tunes remain the staple in the diverse collection of songs that make up Surrender and  will be featured in a no-miss show on the Mountain Village stage.
