Thursday, Feb. 7, 9 p.m.—KILLINGTON— Fusion Reggae jam-band Tropidelic is bringing tropical vibes to the Pickle Barrel Nightclub on Thursday, Feb. 7. Doors open at 8 p.m. for the 9 p.m. show.

The unique six-piece group from Cleveland, Ohio, dishes out high energy funk wherever they play. From intimate venues to popular music festivals, the group is a powerhouse no matter where they are. Hailing from a well-rounded background of musical influences including hip-hop, metal, reggae, and high-energy funk, Tropidelic aims to spread their deep appreciation for music across the country. “We pride ourselves in being original in our musicality and personality as a band,” said frontman Matthew Roads, “but also in not taking ourselves so seriously that it ruins the fun.”

While on stage, the synergy flows from member to member with horns blowing, drums rumbling, and good vibes flowing. Each song featured is composed with multiple songwriting efforts from the band, creating a collective sound. Tropidelic has shared the stage with acts including 311, Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, Pepper, The Flobots and Wookiefoot.

Tickets can be purchased online at or at Jax Food & Games. This is a 21-plus only show. Pickle Barrel is located at 1741 Killington Road, Killington.
