Biography

Johnny Reggae Rub Foundation
Urban Ska & Dirty Reggae


German band Johnny Reggae Rub Foundation bring together early reggae, rocksteady & ska to create a sort of modern ‘urban 2-tone’ sound. The arrangements are unique, the music is tight, the vocals are distinct and overall the vibes are 100% top ranking! – Leo from jaheire.com

When Johnny Ska and Chrissy Reggae started the band, they had in mind to bring out the soul of Jamaican music, combine it with distinct songwriting, and work on the sound till something special evolves. The song is the ruler, the vocals the conqueror – niceness! With Rolo Teng on bass they found a partner in crime fitting in perfectly. Coming from different backgrounds the trio is driven by the unconditional will to succeed in music and the urge to
perform.

Music by the fans for the fans. Johnny Reggae Rub Foundation, in love with ska and early reggae, having surfed every wave in ska music as fans in front of stages populated by their all time heroes like Derrick Morgan and Roy Ellis, The Specials and The Selecter, The Slackers and The Aggrolites and all the great contemporary originators like The Valkyrians and The Upsessions, now come up with their own special musical fingerprint to contribute
to the ska community.

Three dudes, two voices, one sound. Concentrating on the essentials their tool kit consists of rudie drums, offbeat guitar, vintage organ, deep reggae bass and closely interlocked arrangements to reach the peak. Whether you go for the brilliant voice of Chrissy Reggae or prefer the rough approach of master-mind Johnny Ska you cannot escape the charm of their hard groovin’ kick-ass tunes.

‘No Bam Bam’ is the name of the game, the first self-produced album being released on Germany’s most renowned ska label Pork Pie. After three 7” vinyls, now’s the time to present their first full blown album.

While speaking about aggression like in ‘Who Are You’, modern society issues as in ‘Money is The Devil’ or ‘Soul Food’ and the struggle of life mentioned in ‘I Can Tell You’, the album is all about making decisions as shown in ‘Goddamn Right’, giving guidance to attitude within ‘No Bam Bam’ and naming the things that often remain unspoken as in ‘Mission is Completed’.

Still, the music sounds warm and powerful, coming along with amazing vocal arrangements, powerful lyrics and the sublime mix of Victor Rice that moves your mind and your feet.
