Hoouse of David Gang coming to the Avalanche.

Tribute to Bob Marley with House of David Gang

Saturday, Feb. 21 at the Avalanche Bar & Grill

Fifty-three years ago on the island of Jamaica in the city of Kingston, The Wailers started an outstanding recording and performing music career that would eventually prove prophetic in the new creation of a new musical genre of world class proportions; known today worldwide as roots rock reggae.

And, when it comes to reggae, the undisputed “godfather” of the genre is Bob Marley, the late, great leader of The Wailers.

On Saturday, Feb. 21 at the Avalanche Bar & Grill the uplifting reggae band House of David Gang will be paying tribute to Bob Marley. One of Canada’s best reggae bands, this is sure to be an outstanding show. Throughout their career, House of David Gang have been known for their uplifting roots rock reggae sound reminiscent of Kingston, Jamaica’s music scene in the late ’70s 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 that was a hot spot for artists from the city’s burgeoning Rastafarian and reggae community from the late ’80s until the mid ’90s. Now with the release of their album Reggae Warrior on NuFunk Records, the band continues to pave their own road as Canada’s hardest touring reggae band. Doors open at 8:30 with music at 10.
