Bio

Featuring some of the finest and most experienced reggae players in the world, The BBS ALL-STARS have come to be known internationally as today’s crusaders of reggae music. With such diverse backgrounds and influence, ranging from UB40 to NORI NORI thru the second generation of MARLEY, the sound that bleeds from this group is fabulously intoxicating. The lineup consists of front man ROBBIE ROBB (vocals, guitar), PATRICK ROGER (bass, vocals) JULIAN ST ROSE (drums, toasting, vocals) DEVIN MARSH (keyboards, vocals, arrangements), ROBIN HOOD (guitars) and KENLY FRANKLIN (keyboards, vocals, programming). With more than 10 top twenty hits between them, ROLLING STONE magazine has called this group "one of a handful putting music back in the music business". The band’s mainstream appeal & high energy performances integrate and captivate audiences all around the globe, making them an essential part of the BBS experience. The recent addition of UB40 brass wizard PATRICK TENYUE and percussionist TONY “THUNDERHANDS” ARENTH add yet another flavor to this sweet, spicy, fat and funky stew sometimes referred to as the “SOUP” Originally formed as BLACK BEAN SOUP in the nineties, BBS ALL-STARS placed tracks in several motion picture soundtracks, even making the occasional cameo. The band began a promotional tour through Europe and across the US, energizing their way into major music festivals as SUNSPLASH, WORLD AIDS AWARENESS & MUSIC FESTIVAL at Wembley, VH1 MUSIC FIRST, EARTH NOW in Amsterdam, WOODSTOCK and REGGAE SUMFEST. Their performance at Sumfest was featured and aired nationwide on VH1 along with ZIGGY MARLEY, SEAN PAUL & MAXI PRIEST. Other performances have included stints with special guests CLARENCE CLEMONS, STING, *NSYNC, ERIC CLAPTON, BOBBY KEYS, appearances on the LATE SHOW, THE TONIGHT SHOW and LATE NIGHT with CONAN O’BRIEN. In an effort to pay tribute to America, her fallen heroes and all who suffered through September 11, BBS recorded their modern day anthem "SING OUR OWN SONG", a clear message to the world that freedom in America and around the globe will always prevail. All proceeds from the record (sales and royalties) were pledged to the 911 fund. The band also released a second studio recording titled "SESQUIPEDIDIANISM" [the unnecessary use of long words] which featured a remixed version of "Sing Our Own Song" and a ska-like remake of the 1967 Door’s mega hit “Light my fire”. Currently the band has been working hard in the studio on the new record "HELP IS ON THE WAY", scheduled for US release in April 2006. Several festival dates are planned in advance of the new release followed by a full-scale tour later in the year
