Lionize, which formed in 2004, has evolved over the course of five albums from its start as a reggae band to a group that incorporates a mixture of styles. There are many advantages to Lionize’s unique style, one of which is the band’s ability to land tours with a wide array of bands, allowing the group to showcase its music to different audiences and age groups. In 2011, Lionize become the first band to play the multi-day Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and the Vans Warped Tour in the same year. At Tennessee's Bonnaroo, one of the country's most popular festivals, Lionize performed on the same day as Eminem and the Black Keys. On the Warped Tour, they shared the stage with reggae-ska band The Aggrolites and country punks Lucero. Upbeat dudes from Hudson, Riptide take the stage with their blend of hip-hop, rock, and ska.
