John Brown's Body

Named in honor of the legendary abolitionist, reggae unit John Brown's Body was led by singer/guitarist Kevin Kinsella, a longtime fan of Caribbean music who formed the group Tribulations while attending college in Boston in 1989. Three years later they took top honors in the annual Yamaha Soundcheck contest, touring Japan as a result; in 1993 Tribulations also recorded in Jamaica, releasing the LPs The Gate and Daddy Good Pieces before disbanding. Striving for a more organic roots reggae sound, Kinsella founded John Brown's Body in 1995 with bassist Joshua Neuman, keyboardist Sam Godin, trumpeter Paul Merrill, saxophonist Lee Hamilton, backing vocalist Elliot Martin and drummer Tommy Benedetti; debuting in 1997 with All Time, the outfit signed to Shanachie to issue the follow-up Among Them two years later. This Day followed in early 2000. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I like JBB with or without Kevin Kinsella, even though I thought his material was better. That's okay, cause I got 10ft now. Search Valiant Thor Dub on Youtube for a similar sound

i heard about these guys from a slightly stoopid concert. they r sick!
Report as inappropriate
I thought they were better with Kevin because of his great vocals. JBB has always sounded rootsy and always has killer horn lines.
Report as inappropriate
I've gotta disagree, reggae lover. The new style after Kevin left just sounds like horrible Jawaiian music now.

Best, most uplifting reggae out of America... ever? Probably. Original singer/songw r i t e r Kevin Kinsella is in Bob Marley/ Burning Spear country as far as beautiful and lasting message lyrics over sweet reggae sound. "God has many names... don't you judge no one according to the name they choose..." Current singer Elliot Martin still holding it down strong though. Bass lines to melt your soul... Yes.
