On Friday, January 19, the Community Center for the Performing Arts, Smile Movement Presents and KRVM’s Zion Train proudly welcome Eugene’s own One Dollar Check for a Record Release Celebration featuring special guests The Resinators and Chiefed.

One Dollar Check was formed in 2012 by singer/songwriter Gared Sanne, rhythm guitarist/songwriter Rocky Garton, lead guitarist Aaron Pierce and drummer Charles Gallegos.  That year the band recorded their first 5-track EP at Telos Studios in Eugene.

By 2013, One Dollar Check had undergone several member changes; they acquired current bassist Elijah Constantinescu just before recording their debut full-length Feels So Right in 2014.  The songs on the album are influenced by the likes of Pepper, Tribal Seeds, Rebelution and more.  After the release of Feels So Right, One Dollar Check extensively toured the Pacific Northwest and California. 

In December 2016 founding member Rocky Garton left the band and a new sound and performance began to take shape.  Self-described as Dirty Roots, the bands high energy -- paired with elements of hard rock and blues -- have set them apart within the West Coast reggae scene.  Their multi-genre style is paired with powerful lyrics.

The bands second studio album Fill the Void is being released January 19.  A West Coast tour will follow and the band will be visiting towns in Oregon, California, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona this spring. 

One Dollar Check has had the honor of sharing the stage with the likes of Katchafire, Fortunate Youth, Natural Vibrations, Anuhea, Maoli, Josh Heinrichs, Through the Roots, Iya Terra, One Drop, Rebel Souljahs and more.  Notable events include the Northwest Roots Festival, North Umpqua Hemp Fest, Oregon Country Fair and the Oregon Growers Cup. 

Rising out of Eugene, The Resinators are a three-piece powerhouse offering a unique take on California rock/reggae.  With an entrancing and epic sound, their debut album The Beauty of Living was released in January 2016.  That and their latest single, "Royalty", released in the summer of 2017, have earned them fast growing momentum amid a strong following on the West Coast.  

The Resinators have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with other rock/reggae favorites such as: New Kingston, Sol Seed, SensaMotion, Mike Pinto, and Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds.

Strongly motivated by their desire to create and perform, The Resinator’s absolute hope is to continue to travel, play shows, and hear their sound resonate around the world!

Chiefed is NW reggae, throwing down filthy slabs of tunes for the beautiful people.  “Pumping out unique vibes for all y'allz.  Stay chiefed my friends!”

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of show.  Doors open at 8:00 pm and showtime is 9:00.
