Event Description

It took just a tiny bit longer than we expected, but the Victoria Ska & Reggae Society is beyond excited to welcome New Zealand, All-Maori reggae powerhouse KATCHAFIRE back to Victoria! It's been 5 years since Katchafire joined us in Victoria and you can expect a bigger, more triumphant energy than ever, as they return celebrating 25 years as a band.

In their quarter-century of existence, Katchafire has become one of the most renowned reggae bands in the world, proving time and time again that great reggae can come from any corner of the world. With a base built on classic roots reggae, the band incorporates elements of R&B, soul, funk rub, and modern dancehall all blended up and delivered with deep, deep grooves and a slinky pop sheen. Through the height of the pandemic the band was hard at work in their studio at home in Aotearoa creating new music, getting ready for when they'd be back on the road, doing what they love. 2021 was the first year in nearly two decades that Katchafire did not tour overseas and we can only imagine how much love and energy they have stored up for reggae lovers everywhere.

Katchafire will be joined by GONZO of beloved California reggae band Tribal Seeds. Gonzo has been at the forefront of the west coast reggae movement as former lead guitar player for Fortunate Youth, current lead guitar player for Tribal Seeds and through his own impeccable work as a solo reggae artist. His shows are always joyous occasions, marked with his suave lyrical ability, bright voice and top-flight guitar skills.

Come join us for a night of reggae that is sure to fill your heart to brim and get you dancing up a storm!
