Two of the best reggae bands in Toronto that have horn sections and are very proud of that. Burning Spear, The Skattalites, The Sattalites and many other greats used live humans to blow their horns. One of the coolest things about live music is the intricacies of horn lines. Live horns can drop a level or raise the band to higher levels. Both these bands are fans of each other and are bringing a friendly love and competition as they ‘battle’ on this night.
Coolest thing when they are hot like these two are. Truth be told, they are fans of each other and support and revere each other’s work, yet for this event they dropping it old school.
Each band plays a half an hour set. Then they will get progressively less time in each set till they are going “one for one”, which means there is a switch after each song. The whole band goes on, the whole band gets off.
Taking on a concept that is adopted in the dancehall as it pertains to clashes these guys are having FUN with music and performance. Saturday, 6th June at Lee Palace will be a night to remember!
A night of pure skill and pure fun and a whole heap of reggae music!
Deets for the night ~ ~ ~
The Human Rights and Fujahtive together for the first time in a summer kickoff double bill friendly Reggae Horn Section SoundClash.
If you have not seen The Human Rights and you love music then come see this brand of Reggae music that is a direct expression of their name, preaching love, kindness, oneness and basic Human Rights and dignity for ALL people. Check out the video from their most recent release LIONHEART from their upcoming album.
Fujahtive are the This Is Anvil of Reggae playing music together out of pure love for music ever since they met in high school starting in 1986. Fujahtive toured Canada extensively through the 90’s and 2000’s and when in Toronto were mainstays at the sorely missed Bamboo Club in the heyday of Reggae in Toronto. The band's video for Send Fi Mi Girl from their first album "In Black and White" was one of the first Reggae songs in regular rotation on Much Music. Their first album In Black and White was winner of the Prestigious Canadian Reggae Music Award and their second album "The Sound" was nominated for a Juno Award.
