Hub Dub, a Roots/Dub Reggae outfit, is an assemblage of experienced, talented Boston area musicians playing a blend of original improvised music, and classic Dub. With a dynamic and flexible lineup of all-star musicians, coupled with “Oh my god did that just happen” special guest appearances, Hub Dub explores sonic textures with a spontaneous and joyful passion. Whether digging in to a ska anthem, or careening through outer space in a hard hitting Dub, this band brings a party atmosphere to any show. Hub Dub plays a variety of Boston’s premier live music venues, and has enjoyed a weekly residency at Devlin’s in Brighton center since February 2011, making them the perfect answer to the question: “What are you doing Thursday night?” Hub Dub has also enjoyed a Wednesday night residency at Common Ground in Allston, beggining May 2nd, 2012. It's amazing so make sure you are there!

Tonight I heard an angel voiced siren leading a band of seasoned musical warriors on a journey to Jah's city. Haley Jane (lead vox) and Aaron (tenor sax, melodica, live board, effects, percussion) were the standouts, but there was literally talent everywhere I turned. For a finale the guitarist traded fours with a trumpet who had the chops of a deeply experienced jazz musician. The mood was dubby - old-school but polished reggae, with a host of MC's who grabbed the mic and kept the energy hot as the night went on.
You can catch them live in Boston every Wednesday night at Common Ground in Allston, or Thursdays at Devlin's in Brighton. If you don't live on the Eastern seaboard North and East of NYC, check them out on the interweb

A local bar with weekly reggae and no cover
KAY, BRIGHTON CENTER MAY NOT BE IN THE RUNNING FOR best live music neighborhood, but that just makes Devlin's an even better secret. Every Thursday night at 9:30, the bar and bistro hosts Hub Dub, a reggae band made up of some of the top young players in town. The show is free and the bar stays crowded until closing time. The band plays mostly covers, but not the kind that have you longing for the original. It's much more expression than imitation. Sure, you’ll recognize some Bob Marley, but you’re more likely to hear spirited versions of Pink Floyd or Radiohead. Macomber
Shhh Who Knew
Boston's long association with the Caribbean may or may not be immortalized in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood, which some historians believe was named for the 18th- and 19th-century rum trade. In fact, it's more likely that the area was named for a native American chief whose name sounded roughly like "Jamaica."
There are no upcoming dates at this time.
