HOUSE OF DAVID GANG HITTING HARDER THAN EVER

Throughout their career, House of David Gang has been known for their uplifting roots rock reggae sound, which pays homage to the classic 70's & 80 Jamaican sound mixed with a modern rootsy Canadian feel. The band takes its name from The House of David, an afterhours spot on Queen Street West in Toronto that was a Rasta hotspot for reasoning, dancing and reggae music from the late 80s until the mid 90s.

After a hiatus in which lead singer King Selah went solo, the band re-energized in 2004 with a revamped line-up, touring relentlessly to clubs & festivals and building a strong grassroots following across Canada. Emerging from bass player/producer Snappy Homefry's Playhouse Studios--after collaborations with over 20 musicians from Canada’s reggae community and with the wisdom of 20 years of songwriting, performing and recording--House of David Gang recently released their finest album yet: Reggae Warrior on NuFunk.ca Records.

Watch the band perform "Rain" live on CityTV's Breakfast Television http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIEuHz5eBaw&feature=youtu.be
