Description

The languorous, jazz-tinged sound of the Mighty Diamonds is quintessential roots reggae: unadorned and seductively straightforward. Known for their snare-drum-tight songwriting, laid-back rhythms and interwoven harmonies, the Mighty Diamonds were among the most successful reggae acts of the '70s. Decades later, the complete original vocal trio- Donald "Tabby" Shaw, Fitzroy "Bunny" Simpson and Lloyd "Judge" Ferguson- are still at it, resisting trends and staying true to their pure vision. For this tour, the trio is joined by backing band the Yellow Wall Dub Squad, a four-piece comprised of crack roots reggae session players hailing from Kingston, Jamaica.
