Jamrock Reggae Band

  • This event has passed.

Let Jamrock’s music transport you to the tropics for an afternoon during the Memorial Day holiday weekend! Jamrock was founded in 1995 through the desire of a few Jamaicans to hear authentic reggae music, featuring true “yard style” reggae rhythms, reggae standards and an authentic Jamaican sound. Comprised of three Jamaicans as the core of the group, Jamrock is one of the most respected reggae bands in the Triangle area. The success of the group can be attributed to their sound, which reflects the true style of how reggae music is played back in Jamaica. Their repertoire includes all versions of reggae, including lovers’ rock, oldies, dance hall, and roots, in addition to some covers of popular American tunes. Jamrock is Carl Baxter (lead & background vocals), Gerald Mulvaney (lead & background vocals), Dean Irwin (bass, sound), Colin McEwan (management & logistics), Graham Mulvaney (saxaphone), Sylvester Percival (keyboards), Neal Boyke (keyboards), Eric Broadway (drums). Most of the band members are originally from Jamaica; Boyke hails from Trinidad, Percival from Nevis, and Broadway is from Baltimore.
