BIOGRAPHY

For the last 19 years, THE REGGAE REVOLUTION BAND have toured and worked along side highly acclaimed stars such as PATO BANTON, STING, UB40, STEEL PULSE, BERIS HAMMOND, BEENI MAN, LUCIANO and APACHE INDIAN.

They released over 9 albums with PATO BANTON including the Grammy nominated LIFE IS A MIRACLE (TIME COME) Album in 2000, as well as the LIVE IN BRAZIL Album in 1999, which both highlighted the strength and versatility of the band, that often incorporates not only Reggae rhythms, but also Latin, Salsa, Jazz and Soul tones.

Touring constantly saw them sharing the biggest stages globally with all the greats like SHAGGY, ZIGGY MARLEY, THIRD WORLD, SANTANA, STEEL PULSE and many more. From 1992 the band started regular tours in Brazil where they played along side the Brazilian greats Jorge Ben Jor, Skank and Cidade Negra, attracting a big crowd of fans over the years from North to South of the country.

Another headline slot for their first ever trip to South Africa, saw them wowing the audience with their electrified performance as part of the WOMAD series of festivals. Which brings them up to date with the release of their first self-titled debut album "THIS ISÖTHE REGGAE REVOLUTION". It was released in Europe and the UK in 2001 on Prestige-Elite Records and features tracks written by members of the band.
