BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Heritage, voted “Best Band of The Emerald Coast,” will be among the outstanding musical lineup at the three-day Port Canaveral Seafood and Music Festival, set for Feb. 26 – 28 at the Port’s iconic Exploration Tower.
“We are simply a group of guys who just want to play music,” said Heritage front man Tony Verrecchia about the group hailing from Destin, Florida.
But Heritage is much more than that as the band has worked hard honing their sound and gaining a high quality reputation as one of the most revered bands in their genre.
Heritage started almost magically when some family and friends gathered together in a casual backyard party with some musical instruments and a few vocal melodies.
Who would believe that a few house parties in the summer of 2007 would mark the beginning of something much larger?
“We decided to call the group Heritage and devoted ourselves to planting seeds of positivity and love in each song they wrote,” said Verrecchia.
By 2009, the group had enough original material to release their first full-length album entitled “Natural High.”
With the nearly overnight success of Heritage’s debut album, it was clear that something undeniable was beginning to happen: the birth of a new sound which emphasized love and good vibrations.
By 2016 the band had three albums under their belt and the sound and the stature of Heritage was established.
The band truly wishes to stress positivity and growth as evidenced during Hunter Dawson’s recent interview with Space Coast Daily.
“We are influenced by anyone who is innovative and thinks outside the box musically,” said Dawson.
“Anyone who seeks to make a change for the better through music and song. It all starts with the man in the mirror.”
“Our sound is rock reggae, but we all have a number of different influences, so that produces a unique sound.
Heritage is looking forward to the great array of talent featured at the Port Canaveral Seafood Festival.
“Dirty Heads have always been a big influence to us, so we love opening for them – which we have done three times,” said Dawson.
“We are also looking forward to introducing ourselves to the Space Coast Music Scene.”
Heritage will open for the Dirty Heads on Feb. 26 at 6 p.m.
“One night during one of our breaks, a man came up to us and explained that his wife’s brother had just passed away unexpectedly the day before,” said Dawson.
“He went on to say that the only thing that made her feel better was our music…listening to our songs. She was there that night and thanked us for our music. It was unbelievably humbling that what we did mattered so much.”
Rising from the back yards of Okaloosa County, Florida, Heritage delivers an energetic and positive show that will move all ages and genres.
The group has headlined hundreds of shows and served as support for national acts ZZ Top, Rebelution, 311, Ballyhoo and more.
Heritage sounds like a mixture of soulful roots reggae, rock, so-cal dub, and Hip Hop. Find the music of Heritage Band on Touchtones juke boxes all over the nation, Spotify, iHeart radio, Amazon and iTunes.
