HOUSE OF DAVID GANG www.myspace.com/houseofdavidgang THE HOUSE OF DAVID GANG is a Toronto-based reggae collective that delivers late 70s and early 80s style Jamaican reggae classics.

House of David Gang have included members of Resinators, Irie Band, Explorer Band, Revelation, Sellasie I Power and many others. The House of David Gang got it's name from a House that a group of like minded Toronto Reggae Musicians lived in and who held after-hour reggae parties for several years which developed the musicians into some of Toronto's Top session players. For the past 15 years, King Selah and the House of David Gang have hosted the Toronto Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer Tributes, which have helped bring light to Toronto's roots, rock reggae scene. Now with a new line-up - The House of David Gang faithfully recreates the Wailers Sound - which includes: King Selah (Lead Vocals), Collin Edwards (Drums & Backup Vocals), Uncledropsi (Hip Hop MC,Bass), Jay Cleary (Rhythm & Lead guitar), Killa Henderson(Keyboards) and Meghan "Makaya" Kelday (Lead and Backup Vocals) .www.myspace.com/houseofdavidgang EMPRESS DEEQA www.myspace.com/empressdeeqa Songstress and songwriter EMPRESS DEEQA was born in Somalia and currently lives in Montreal, Quebec.
