Katchafire Live Summer 15/16

Katchafire Live Summer 15/16
Die legendäre neuseeländische Reggaeband hat es mit vier extrem erfolgreichen Studioalben, mehrfachen Awards und Platinplattenverkäufen zum erfolgreichsten Musikexport der Pazifikinsel geschafft. Ihr Sound besteht aus einem soliden Roots Reggae Fundament gewürzt mit einer Prise R’n’B, Funk, Dancehall und Soul. Die 8 multitalentierten Songwriter und Musiker zaubern vor allem live mit ihren mehrstimmigen Vocals und ihrem klaren Sound einen einzigartigen Vibe auf die Bühne. Auf ihren weltweiten Tourneen spielten sie u.a. mit Damian Marley, Steel Pulse, UB40, The Wailers und vielen mehr. Wir sind stolz, die Band wieder bei uns im Gaskessel Bern begrüssen zu dürfen! Katchafire is a New Zealand roots reggae band from Hamilton consisting of Tere Ngarua, Jordan Bell, Jamey Ferguson and four other musicians. The band was originally a family affair, with Grenville Bell and his two sons Logan and Jordan forming the band in the year 2000. It has seen numerous line up changes due to commitments issues from several members but now includes eight musicians in total. Their first album 'Revival' was releases in 2003 and peaked at #5 in New Zealand, it included three top ten singles, the most successful being 'Giddy Up' which reached #4. The band has been managed by numerous members over the years, the first being original founder Grenville Bell who happily turned the role over to Ara Adams Tamatea. However after a time Ara decided to step down as manager so it once again fell to a founding member, this time Logan Bell. They continued to enjoy chart success with their following album releases; 'Slow Burning' peaked at #12, 'Say What You're Thinking' at #5 and 'On The Road Again' and 'Best So Far' both reached #3 in New Zealand. Katchafire has toured worldwide building up a loyal following of their reggae sound. A real popular act in neighbouring Australia, the band are known for their upbeat live shows and tight musical skill. They have supported other renowned reggae acts including Steel Pulse, Third World, UB40 and Shaggy.
