Last but not least on the Hometown Stage this year will be The Ameros. The Ameros are a rock, reggae, hip-hop, and funk powerhouse that is saying things that no one else is saying. Sharing a bass player and drummer with Taina Asili y la banda rebelde, they are battle hardened musicians who are at the front lines of message music. No matter who is telling the lies, the Ameros are here and steeped in the truth. Prepare to be awakened to a new paradigm via lyrics, harmonies, and blazing guitar solos.
"They are original independent voices who have something to say. They have a lot of energy and their lyrics are thought provoking. They are relevant to Troy and to Albany, but they are relevant to the rest of the world as well."
-Bob Goepfert - Quote of Steve Pierce, Troy Record
