Militia of Love is a Reggae Rock group from the Central California coast. MoL is led by bassist and vocalist, Robbie 'Rasta' Melendez, one of the God fathers of the Cali-Reggae scene, who is best known for his work with Cardiff Reefers. Since the fall of 2011, the band has featured Lara Price, renowned Blues singer throughout the Monterey and SF Bay areas for over 15 years. Fronted by two accomplished singers, Militia of Love is considered to be the 'Lady Antebellum' of California Reggae. Backed by one of the tightest rhythm sections, MoL highlights the drumming of Efrain Cantu. A master drummer and percussionist in his own right, Cantu played lead snare with the Santa Clara Vanguard and is well versed in Latin and Afro-Cuban rhythms. Together with Guitar Institute graduate, Gregg Ichikawa and self taught Reggae keyboardist, Steve Sagrero, Militia of Love has a unique sound that incorporates rootsy Reggae, Latin Rock, and American Pop music.

Early in 2011, Militia of Love released its debut CD, Life & Love, available on iTunes or through For more information on the band, please visit
