Arcadia is a Pop/Reggae band from Flint, MI which formed in 2006. They are known for their feel good melodies and lyrics, and for energetic and heartfelt live performances. Songwriters Larry Ford (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Aaron McWilliams (Guitar), influenced by Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson, and G Love & Special Sauce, began blending their music and lyrics and noticed a promising chemistry. The songs brought interest to some fellow musicians from their area, so Larry and Aaron jumped on the opportunity to start the band adding Patrick McCarty (Bass/Vocals), Beni Schlatter (Drums/Percussion), and Travis Hostetler (Drums/Percussion). Performing and writing for well over a year, the band decided to spend some time in the studio and recorded their independently released debut album “Some Songs For You” in December 2007. Buzz continues to generate all over Michigan and the country continue as their loyal fan base grows.
