Vegitation is San Diego’s solution to keeping reggae fresh and green. They produce original reggae songs instead of rehashing those Marley tunes that most reggae acts perform at local bars and clubs. Vegitation played for the evacuees at Qualcomm Stadium in October 2007, the Ranchita Rocks Music Festival near Borrego Springs in September '07, and the environmentally conscious Sustainability Day at SDSU, also in September '07. They are regulars at Winstons and PB Bar and Grille.
