Funky Reggae Party

about the band


Based in the burgeoning music scene of Roanoke, Virginia, Shorefire's sound is an original blend of rock, funk, and reggae music with a focus on memorable melodies and dance-able rhythms.


"Shorefire is one of the Chillage's favorite local bands, not just for their unique and laid-back style, but the classiness they bring to the show!"
- Carey Shaffner, Grandin Chillage
