The idea behind the formation of 808 was to perform original arrangements of popular songs in a reggae and ska style alongside of originals from the band. Chris and John front the band with powerful harmonies. The horn sections adds the "super-hero" horn lines while the rhythm section keys the reggae feel of the band's music. The band's name -- 808 -- is a tribute to Bob Marley. Triano says that "in the middle of trying to name the band at rehearsal one night, we noticed the time on an old block-style digital clock: 8:08 or 'BOB,' and immediately knew that we had a name." 808's music is a perfect fit for outdoor concert series, wine festivals, private parties and any event where you want people to dance.
