Hosted by Toronto reggae collective House of David Gang, a Bob Marley Legacy Tribute Concert will happen this Saturday in Courtenay.

Joined by King Selah, Rasta Reuben, Emma Plant and Ganjo Bassman at the Bridge Lounge, House of David Gang’s Bob Marley Tribute is heartfelt to one of the greatest musical and political figures of our time.

In addition to experiencing the great music and great vibes, attendees can help contribute to a good cause by bringing non-perishable food items for the Comox Valley Food Bank.

Focusing on performing a wide variety of music from Bob Marley’s catalog; from his early singles on Studio One, Trojan and Tuff Gong to his biggest hits on Island Records, House of David Gang’s Bob Marley Birthday Tribute is one of the hottest reggae concert tours of the year showcasing the best of Canada’s burgeoning original reggae music scene and raising food donations for local food banks.

Throughout their career, House of David Gang has been known for their uplifting roots rock reggae sound reminiscent of Kingston, Jamaica’s music scene in the late ’70s and ’80s highly influenced by the works of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Dennis Brown and Gregory Isaacs mixed with a modern roots Canadian feel.

The band takes its name from The House of David, an after-hours spot on Queen Street West in Toronto that was a hotspot for artists from the city’s burgeoning Rastafarian and reggae community from the late ’80s until the mid-’90s.

Touring behind their brand new album “Reggae Warrior,” House of David Gang have lived up to their namesakes as Canada’s busiest reggae act with over 65 club and festival tour dates in 2013, multiple television appearances, and 3 charting singles “Rain” “Reggae Party” and “Best I can be.”

CBC Toronto host Matt Galloway says “One of the most interesting reggae bands in the country” and Exclaim Magazine says the album “Reggae Warrior works to remind the reggae faithful of the earthy Queen Street West live vibe, while at the same time showing that the band’s potential to deliver a modern classic.”

The music starts March 22 at 9 p.m. at the Bridge Lounge.
