John Brown's Body
Supporting Acts: Ovibes, THE CRAZY CARLS John Brown's Body
John Brown's Body's "Future Roots" uses reggae as a foundation, but incorporates dub, drum & bass, dancehall, hip hop and other musical explorations to create a sound both timeless and forward. However it's defined, people are buzzing about this progressive group from Boston and Ithaca, NY. The eight-piece band's explosive live show boasts 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). JBB’s latest album Amplify (2008), debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Reggae Chart. Their new EP, JBB In Dub, will be released September 18th on Easy Star Records.
