JOHN BROWN'S BODY
JOHN BROWN'S BODY
John Brown's Body's "Future Roots" uses reggae as a foundation, but incorporates dub, drum and bass, and electro to create a sound both timeless and forward. Described by LA2DAY as "delivering the most forward-thinking reggae music in the world today" the 8-piece band's killer live show has super heavy rhythms, a three piece horn section, air tight drum and bass and "the most gorgeous melodies in all of modern reggae music" [All Music Guide], all backed by a dubbed-out sound engineer.
However it's defined, it's got people buzzing about this progressive band from Boston and Ithaca, NY who's latest album, Amplify, debuted at #1 on Billboard's Reggae Chart.
Nappy Riddem
Nappy Riddem
Since releasing their debut album on Fort Knox Recordings in 2011, NAPPY RIDDEMhas been busy touring nationwide and releasing a string of remixes, transforming itself into an uplifting and conscious reggae band that is funky enough to pack the dance floor. Started by Mustafa Akbar and Rex Riddem, Nappy Riddem has expanded into a six-piece band, whose live show is engaging and compelling, getting the crowd moving and grooving with a smile on their faces.

In 2013 Nappy Riddem released "The Rock Steady EP" and was awarded "Best Reggae Recording" by the Washington Area Music Association, in 2014. Nappy Riddem stepped out of the studio to focus on touring. They've toured up and down the East Coast as well as Texas, Colorado and California. Nappy Riddem has headlined world famous venues like the 9:30 Club and Brooklyn Bowl. This band of brothers has had the pleasure of supporting Steel Pulse, the English Beat, Go-Go rockers Experience Unlimited, John Brown's Body, Lee Scratch Perry, and every current incarnation of Bob Marley's Wailers, most recently featuring Aston "Family Man" Barret and Marley's Lead Guitarist Junior Marvin. Junior Marvin also selected Nappy Riddem to mentor and tour with him as his backing band during their 2014 California tour. The highlight of which was headlining the prestigious Joshua Tree Music Festival. Nappy Riddem's performances meld Reggae, Rock, and Funk together into their unique brand of "Dancehall Funk".
