Redbone

Pat Vegas has continued to write music over the years. Some tunes had been recorded since 1980, with Lolly of course, but also with Tony bellamy for some songs. Finally in 2005 Pat puts this work out on a new CD called One World. It was released in 2005 by a small independent record company. It was reedited in 2009 and retitled as Peace Pipe. At the same period Pat Vegas recreates the band with new musicians. They tour mainly in the west of the United States since.

Redbone was inducted into the Native American Music Association Hall of Fame in 2008, as well as the New York Smithsonian in 2013.

They were also honored with vein painted on the largest mural in the US in Fresno CA. On August 30, 2014 Pat Vegas was honored with the Lifetime Achievement "Legend" Award from the "West Coast American Indian Music Awards."

On December 25, 2009, Tony Bellamy died from liver failure at a hospital in his hometown of Las Vegas, and less than three months later, Lolly Vegas succumbed to lung cancer at his family home in Reseda, California on March 4, 2010.

So all hope to see the original band play together again was lost forever. But Redbone's music continues to fill our hearts and minds and Pat continues to work with his new band. Peacepipe shows that the spirit and soul is still there and that we can hope he and his new musicians will continue to offer us great music and new songs.

In 2014, "Come And Get Your Love" experienced a resurgence in popularity when it was featured in the Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy, as one of the songs on a mixtape made for the protagonist, Peter Quill. It was also included on the film's soundtrack album, which reached the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart.


Cary Morin

Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America and beyond like no other, from the rocking, electrified world groove of The Atoll, to the pared-down acoustic blues of Sing It Louder, which showcases Morin’s deft fingerstyle guitar.  Sing It Louder revisits Morin’s musical origins in Great Falls, 
Montana, where he cut his teeth picking guitar standards at neighborhood get-togethers. Here, original songs, such as This Train, Rounders, and the title track, as well as innovative covers of War and Black Friday, display his distinctive songwriting style, which has been described as acoustic Native Americana, with strong qualities of jam, reggae, jazz, blues, bluegrass and dance. Tim Duffy, president of Music Makers Relief Foundation, describes Morin as “a brilliant guitarist, heartfelt songwriter and soulful singer whose music gives us pause to reflect on life's great rewards.” 

The release of Sing It Louder follows close on the international success Pura Fe Trio Live! A Blues Night in North Carolina, a recording from which Ole Midlife Crisis, a song he wrote and performed with Pura Fé, placed at number 17 on France’s iTunes blues chart in March 2011. 

Crow tribal member and son of an air force officer, Morin was born in 1962 in Billings, Montana. He spent the bulk of his youth in Great Falls before relocating to Northern, Colorado. There, his musical career started off running with The Atoll, a band he founded in 1989 and that toured nationally, quickly gaining an enthusiastic and devoted following. With The Atoll and The Pura Fé Trio, and also as a solo artist, Morin has played celebrated venues across the globe, including Paris Jazz Festival, Winter 
Park Jazz Festival, Folk Alliance International, River People Festival,  Shakori Hill Festival and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Morin’s performances have reached millions through national TV in Japan, France 
and the UK; and national radio in the US (NPR’s Beale Street Caravan), UK (BBC’s Whose London), France (RFI), Switzerland and Belgium. 

Morin’s musical relationship with Pura Fé began during the stage show Tribe at the Celebrity Theater in 
Phoenix. His stage credits also include co-authorship of Turtle Island, a 50-member production that played two consecutive years to sold-out audiences in Northern Colorado. With the Red Willow Dancers, Morin was a guest of the internationally renowned Kodo Drummers in Ogi japan, performing at their 1998 spring festival and other dates in Japan. He has produced or appeared on over 15 recordings, and has toured 22 US states, as well as Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium and the UK.
