House of David Gang (Toronto, Ontario)

Canada’s Reggae Warriors


Dubbed “Canada's Reggae Warriors," House of David Gang is an authentic reggae band from Toronto that delivers late 70s and early 80s-style Jamaican reggae originals; mixed with folk, tropical and Canadiana influences.  The band takes its name from the House of David, an after-hours hotspot for the Toronto's burgeoning Rastafarian and reggae community from the late 80’s until the mid-90’s.   The band adopted the name "House of David Gang" in 1997 when the House of David venue got closed down by city authorities who were able to evict the band based on zoning and noise bylaws.  The band then became well-known for live performances at The Bamboo and El Mocambo and hosting the Peter Tosh Tributes for over 25 years. Now the band continues to be influential for played over hundreds of dates across Canada and have shared the stage with top reggae artists such as Lee Scratch Perry, Xavier Rudd, Major Lazer, The Mighty Diamonds, Big Youth, Bushman, Mad Professor, Dawn Penn, Leroy Sibbles, Echo Minott, The Original Wailers and Ill Scarlett. The David Gang band members include Canada's top reggae session artists and have performed in front of enthusiastic crowds at some of Canada’s top music festivals including The Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, Hillside Festival, Atlantic Jazz Festival, Beaches Jazz Festival, Toronto Festival of Beer, Ottawa Reggae Festival, Word On The Street, Irie Music Festival, Canada 150 Celebrations and more.  A career highlight for the band was a performance for over 30,000 people at The Freedom Festival at Queen's Park in Toronto.
