In Spring 2010 a band out of Kingston, Jamaica called Dubtonic Kru embarked on the US music scene hitting major territories from West to North West moving across to the Midwest leaving a musical revolution behind.
Two years later in 2012 they made their debut appearance in Austin, TX at the famous SXSW World Music Conference. A month later, they returned and gave the 20,000 filled audience of the Austin Reggae Festival some authentic reggae music fused with a little rock – Dubtonic Kru delivered the right amount of “dub” medicine.
Their undeniable impact on the US scene has seen this dynamo of a band expanding their audience base to the Southern states such as Louisiana, Georgia reaching as far as Central America in countries like Mexico in their “Journey Tour” Part 1 Spring 2012.
Responses from the US audiences have been phenomenon – band member Jubba explains, “the vibe has been great and we just give thanks that they have accepted our music”, he continued.
Their popularity in the states have not waned as they have touched major festivals including Summerfest World Music Festival in Milwaukee, The Bayfront Reggae Festival in Minnesota, the Sierra Nevada Music Festival and the Monterey Bay Reggae Festival in California among others.
As Jamaica celebrates fifty years of independence with much noise all over the world, Dubtonic Kru will add their distinct sound on part 2 of the Journey Tour which kicks off August 2012 back in the USA.
This is certainly some medicine you must have…Dub and tonic – the Dubtonic Kru, Winner of Global Battle of the Band 2010-2011.
