Passafire have already left their indelible mark on the music scene and as the band has said themselves: "Passafire has a momentum that has been with us since day one. Slowing down is not in our scope." As evidenced by their exhaustive tour schedule, Passafire certainly isn't slowing down. The band averages more than 150 shows annually.
The band, who borrowed their name from a Bob Marley and the Wailers record, Catch a Fire, said they are influenced by a number of different bands. "I think, collectively we all like the Police, The Clash, 311, Sublime, John Brown's Body is a big major reason why we play reggae music, also the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Sound Garden, Jessie and the Rippers," said Ted Bowne of Passafire.

Passafire Concert Experience
It's always a unique experience the first time you discover a specific style of music that is to your liking. It's comparable to opening a door to a whole new dimension of music that you hadn't realized ever existed before. Expanding your horizons to include music outside of your comfort zone is a euphoric feeling that can only be trumped by the pursuit to find new music that you may have never imagined enjoying before. The experiences will vary from person to person depending on the style of world music discovered, but it will always be a feeling that will be cherished and carried into continued efforts in the future of music.
Passafire is one of these bands that boasts a truly unique sound. Peddling good times and relaxed tunes since 2003, Passafire's live shows are legendary. As Passafire members said, fans can expect "pyrotechnics... lots of energy... lasers, sweating... and loud noises." As Bowne put it, "We use a lot of effects, so sometimes they come out sounding really different than the night before, and sometimes that can be really cool and unique and sometimes we're all like 'Woah, what was that?' But, like he said, every night the shows are different because we use so many different effects, and sometimes sounds come out of nowhere and you're like 'Okay, that's only gonna happen right now."
