“The members of Crown Chakra believe that there's a mysticism about Monterey, considering it hallowed ground for being the site of Monterey Pop and a birthplace of the Summer of Love. Crown Chakra includes Dylan Greig on lead vocals and 12-string guitar, his partner Bethanie Marie on drums and newly acquired bassist, Keith Dilliplane, who plays a Hofner bass similar to the one Paul McCartney preferred. Marie says this is a special year for the group because it marks the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. One of the highlights of their album fits the theme: “Haight Street Soul” is a tribute to Haight and Ashbury streets in San Francisco before the gentrification toppled the pavement promenade. Crown has a kind of broad appeal that transcends generational divides. Marie describes the band's sound as “garage rock revival, spiritual and electrifying”, a well-represented genre in Monterey. Their brand of rock is heavy, with an emphasis on mood, psychedelia and live energy.”
