John Brown's Body Booking Agency Profile

Book John Brown's Body for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
JBB was founded by Kevin Kinsella and had a long and illustrious career spanning three decades and numerous lineup changes. The band's groundbreaking record, "All Time," became almost legendary and is recognized as a key component of the US reggae scene. Throughout the course of the first five JBB albums, Kinsella—who began as the band's original lead singer and songwriter—brought a large quantity of original music to the public eye. From "All Time," their breakthrough release on Itown Records, to several recordings on Shanachie Records, JBB established themselves as a popular touring and recording group with a distinctive sound. When JBB teamed up with the legendary Easy Star Records, a long-lasting and productive collaboration that lasted for more than ten years began.
John Brown's Body has created "a legacy that has inspired and carved a path for the now thriving contemporary American reggae scene," according to Rudeboy Reggae. Hailed as "Future roots, reggae, and dub with an intricately balanced weaving of vocals, percussion, keyboard, bass, guitar, and stunning horn section that ties it all together" (WRUV). One of the few American reggae bands to go on a national tour was JBB, which was founded in Ithaca, New York, in the middle of the 1990s, before the country's reggae scene had grown significantly. Since then, JBB has contributed significantly to the definition of what makes "American reggae" unique. Although JBB's music has a strong traditional vibe, it also shamelessly borrows aspects from various genres..
