The trademark JBB sound evolved out of early 90's rock and reggae and developed into a 21st century band founded on heavy drum and bass, four part vocal harmony, and a horn section. After self-releasing their earliest album on ITown Records, they were then signed to Shanachie Records and released three more records.
Recently, they've even made an appearance at the Bob Marley Day Festival in Miami, FL., alongside Lauryn Hill and others. The band has played many of the major U.S. Festivals and performed an average of over 100 shows a year for the past 8 years. To put in simply, they've been very busy. In 2006, the band toured nation-wide, and they were also invited to perform on the Dave Matthews and Friends Cruise to the Bahamas. This successful band's trip to Cortland, NY, will be something to look forward to.
"One of the world's best roots-style reggae bands."
"If it is possible to be both reverent and revolutionary, JBB has found a way with their new album."
--New York Daily News
"The most authentic purveyors of 'truth and rights' music around."
--The Village Voice
