Dubtone Orchestra Fiesta Party

June 28 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


G.A. Standing 7:30pm doors / 8:30pm show
21+, Positive I.D. Required $30

The DubTone Orchestra is not your typical 17-piece Big Band! It’s New Orleans meets the
Caribbean: the big, brassy horns of the French Quarter colliding with the Rocksteady beat of
early Jamaica! It is Reggae and Ska, Calypso and Dancehall, Latin and Jazz, all in one! Their
eclectic mix of covers (from Bob Marley to Paquito D’Rivera!) and original compositions will
put the beat in your feet and have you dancing all night!
The band was formed in the summer of 2020 with the intent of bringing together as many of
the musicians in the Northeast who were professionally active in the Jamaican and
Afro-American music scene.
This is the Northeast’s premier New Orleans and Caribbean fusion Orchestra! The performers
featured in the group have collectively recorded over 40 albums and toured 67 countries
across 6 continents with artists like Toots Hibbert, The Skatalites, The Toasters, The Mighty
Mighty Bosstones, Morgan Heritage, Steel Pulse, 10 Ft. Ganga Plant, The Elovators, Heavy
Metal Horns, Groundation, Rebel Tumbao, Liquid Revolution, Westbound Train, Big D and The
Kids Table, The Slackers, The Void Union, Attractors, Mile 21, and many more!
