STARRING: House of David Gang (Toronto, Ontario) Canada’s Reggae Warriors www.houseofdavidgang.com 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.
  6. Uma Nota and Nufunk Concerts present THE HUMAN RIGHTS 10 Year Anniversary Party with special guests Exco Levi, Dubmatix, Ammoye, TDot Batu, Maracatu Mar Aberto and many more. Saturday April 7th, 2018 The Redwood Theatre 1300 Gerrard St.E, Toronto, ON http://www.redwoodcircus.com Doors @ 8pm Tickets $15 advance / $20 at the door Facebook Link / Online Tickets Toronto Reggae collective The Human Rights celebrates 10 years of hard hitting live reggae with the best of Canada's Reggae Scene In the spring of 2008 three veterans of the Toronto reggae music scene -- Friendlyness, Bernie Pitters and I-Sax decided to take a chance and come together with four freshly graduated music school students to form an original conscious modern-roots Reggae band. Just months later they found themselves on stage in front of a sold-out Phoenix Concert Hall opening for one of the biggest names in Reggae music, Gregory Isaacs. The spark caught fire and ten years later, The Human Rights are at the top of their musical game. To celebrate the momentous occasion, the band is presenting a special 10 Year Anniversary party featuring an array of special guests and old friends from across the diverse Toronto music scene including: Exco Levi, Dubmatix, Ammoye, TDot Batu, Maracatu Mar Aberto and many more. About The Human Rights www.thehumanrights.ca Since they came together, The Human Rights have built a reputation as one of Canada's top Reggae bands -- specializing in original, high-energy, modern roots reggae with a mix of jazz, funk and R&B influences. The band is fronted by Juno nominee Friendlyness (formerly of Culture Shock & Big Sugar) and Juno nominee Tréson on lead vocals and features a blazing 3-piece horn section, two stellar guitar players, and a rock steady riddim section, topped off by legendary reggae keyboardist Bernie Pitters (Toots and the Maytals, Hit Squad, Leroy Brown, Sly & Robbie). In 2017 The Human Rights had the honour of opening up for world wide reggae legends The Wailers, once again in front of a sold-out crowd at Phoenix Concert Hall in Toronto. The band also performed at Sound Academy, Harbourfront, Roy Thomson Hall and the Jambana Festival. In 2009, 2012 and 2016 they toured across Canada and performed at the Calgary Reggae Festival, one of the top Reggae festivals in the country. Since the release of their debut CD "One Thing" in 2010, The Human Rights have played well over 100 live shows, and released singles for 'Right Now', 'Take A Stance' and 'Old School Track' which spent a record 44 weeks on the listener-voted Rebel Vibez Top Ten Chart. Other highlights include opening for seminal Reggae legends such as John Holt, Beres Hammond, and Freddie McGregor, recording live for Big City, Small World on CBC Radio One, and a song placement in the Trailer Park Boys movie, "Don’t Legalize It." Produced by Big Sugar frontman and Canadian music icon Gordie Johnson, their 2016 self-titled album is The Human Rights’ most ambitious record yet, a powerful statement that the heartbeat of roots Reggae in Canada has never been stronger.

    Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams.... and Kevin Breit!

    looks so good... I saw Larry lead a Tribute to The Band at Lincoln Center a few years ago. What an accomplished and tasty player! That whole woodstock, Hudson Valley scene is very rich, and Larry's been in the middle of it.
