"Classic roots reggae has been a longtime focus for Hoonhout and Furnee, acts like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Culture and Desmond Decker. That allegiance to tradition has resulted in high-profile opening sots over the years opening for every major artist that you can think of in the Reggae world: Bunny Wailer, Burning Spear, the Itals, Culture, Ziggy Marley, The Wailers. Our music is Roots Reggae and it's all got a strong message."
