Originating from Charleston, SC, Well Charged was founded on a shared love for vintage reggae, rocksteady and ska music. With a style inspired by early pioneers of Caribbean music, such as Alton Ellis, Desmond Dekker and Prince Buster, Well Charged released their EP, Lift up Sessions, in October 2018. After gaining a wealth of experience traveling and performing in Jamaica, Well Charged will bring their rhythm back to the Lowcountry for you to groove the night away.
