THE RESOLVERS
Friday, October 22 @ Transit Lounge | FREE | 10 AM
Four years into playing the South Florida reggae circuit, The Resolvers have begun evolving on every front. Adding a full horn section and multiple female harmonizers, the new 11-piece outfit captures the essence of the classic big-band reggae sound: natural acoustic percussion, deep bass grooves, worldly drum rhythms, tasty vintage keyboards and bluesy guitar licks accented by timely horn blasts, all while being blended with modern song craftsmanship to create their own familiar yet original take on world music. Rooted by a core of five dedicated musicians including Dean Fishback (veteran keyboardist who has played with Inner Circle, Sugar Minot and Mikey Dread) and front man Ojay Smith (son of Jamaican legend Ernie Smith), The Resolvers are preparing to release a series of “double-sided singles” on disc and vinyl. The numbered limited-edition vinyl will feature art work commissioned specifically for each track, making each album a collector’s item. The Resolvers believe music is a basic human right; much like shelter, food and water, it should be available to all. Actualizing this mentality, each single will also be available as a FREE download on their soon-to-be-launched new website. www.theresolvers.com
