“Q: Are you guys just a reggae band? A: That is what people know us as. I learned to play music listening to reggae and we were founded by a bunch of guys who like reggae, but at the same time, we come from so many different influences. We are not purists. We have a reggae foundation, but it is fusion. Lots of blues, rock, which is what reggae is anyway. Right now the direction is to play the music from the heart. Q: Are you doing covers or originals or both? A: People want to hear some of the classic stuff from Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Steel Pulse. We play that. We are more about original music, but to be honest, we love playing those covers as well. ”
