The group Seefari played at our Juneteenth 2010 celebration. They were the main attraction at the end of the day, everybody loved the performance. The group was easy to work with prior to the event, they were not high maintance and their price fit our budget!

Re SEEFARI Duo: This group was wonderful. They were punctual, professional, talented and very personable. Our group loved them!! Thanks so much, and I wouldn't hesitate to book them again!.

GigMasters Rating: 5.0 stars

Tom and Melody were the perfect duo for our party. Our guests ranged from the age of 14-83! They could rachet up the music for dancing and tone it down for dinner. Everyone got up and involved including the 83 year old and a man who had never danced before! Those in their 40's, the majority of guests, all requested cards for future bookings, and my husband and I who were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary were really glad we chose Reggae and Salsa over the typical "cover band". They set up quickly and were ready to play on time, and they quietly broke down the equipment after their time was up. Very professional, friendly and talented couple.

-Pat P, 9/3/2011, Anniversary Party, Greenwood, IN
 


Chuck Foster “The Beat” Magazine
-“Reggae Central” KPFK FM, Los Angeles

“Producer, engineer, mixer, writer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Seefari does it all on Rasta Italist (Upful Sound), with the exception of some-but not all-backing vocals from I Jah Melody. Tom “Seefari” Carroll has been putting out independent music for a couple of decades and on this release he gets a masked, Perry-esque sound on the tracks and vocals that harks back to the mid-‘70s while offering songs like “Mary Jane” (you can guess what that one’s about), “Beautiful Majesty” and “Peaceful Village” that give a nuanced meaning to the concept “homegrown”. Seefari’s lengthy career in reggae shows in his familiarity with various styles from the picking guitars of rock steady to the polyrhythmic elements utilized in “Run to the hills". One thing for sure, he is doing what he enjoys and enjoying what he does on this set of 11 original songs that closes with four bubbling dubs”. –
 

World Music Central Review
Tom Orr - World Music Central

from the US (although I don't know exactly where he makes his home) is Seefari, whose CD Rasta Italist (Upful Sound US1015CD, 2007) is true to its title with extended meditations on Haile Selassie, ganja, spiritual unity, natural living and the absurdity of war. Seefari is a hands-on dread who plays all the instruments, sings nearly all the vocals and cultivates a murky, dub-heavy sound that's deeply pleasing whether you're the inhaling type or not.(.
 

ReggaeReviews.com – Burbank California

Tom "Seefari" Carroll is a veteran Ohio-based roots singer whose Rasta Italist marks his sixth album to date. This is in itself an impressive achievement, but if Seefari took as hands-on an approach with his previous releases as he did with this one, his track record is all the more astounding. One look at the liner notes reveals his Prince-like control over all aspects of the album -- including writing, producing, engineering, lead and backing vocals, and every single instrument. Rasta Italist is a pensive and heartfelt album that harkens back to the '70s Golden Age of roots reggae. Coupled with Seefari's righteous lyrics and humble, unassuming vocals, it draws favorable comparison to Pablo Moses' best work. Highlights include "1 Love Not 2 Hate," "Pray Every Day," "No More War," and the title track.

Tom "Seefari" Carroll is a foundational player in the Midwestern US reggae scene. He not only wrote, produced and sang these 15 trax , but he also played every instrument on this cd. Complimenting Seefari on these eleven songs and four dub versions is I Jah Melody's angelic high vocal harmonies. A plea for peace in "No War" mixes lead guitar lines with harmonica giving a blues rock flavor to the steady one drop. Rasta spirituality pours out of the reminder to "Pray Every Day" as well as the tribute to Jah on "Beautiful Majesty." The title track shows appreciation for the natural herbs and "Wizzy Wisemind" is a sweet take on the love story of Solomon and Sheba from the old testament. This whole cd has a cohesive American roots rock natural vibe to it. The disc doesn't always have that glossy polish of big budget productions, but the heart and soul behind it makes up for that.
