What if music piracy finally made sense??
The rowdy REGATTA 69-Ship has set sails to conquer the world – THE AIM IS THE WAY! There’s no looking back anymore, it’s going forward, and nothing can stop them! Captain Brian Hill from North Carolina (USA) has settled an international crew around him (Germany, France, UK, USA) and the smell of the Caribbean, rum and pure adventure is in the air wherever the wind may carry them. On board they hold the most precious treasures a Ska band can own – the essences of amazing and original music: a box full of Ska, another one filled with Reggae, a case with Rock and a couple of powder kegs filled with Dub and Worldbeat - always being fired in the right moment. Of course there has to be a Lady on every pirate ship! Motha Nature gives you chills and goose bumps with her Rap-adventures – she gets to every core of the cruel reality with her bittersweet voice.
REGATTA 69 has been sailing the seas since the days when Ska was only spread across the Ska-scene-underground. Times were rough and tough, but the Captain and his crew would not be the determined and experienced pirates they are today, if they had not fought every battle and overcome any mutiny! On their minds – always the stage! They tour under every condition as long as the audience is dancing! USA, Europe or South Africa – every harbor gets occupied, every city taken! REGATTA 69 has played more than 1500 concerts over the last years!
THE AIM IS THE WAY is a journey through the Seven Seas of Ska and Reggae in a Regatta 69-own version. The album is as multifaceted as the band itself – every song has its own history, but together they form a unique adventure that stands out from the masses of today’s uniformed CDs. Their path leads them to the people in every single town, spreading their music into every corner of the world: This path is their goal – THE AIM IS THE WAY!
