Bitty McLean
Bitty McLean
A much loved talent with an astonishing voice and unnerving ability to pen a pop smash, McLean launched himself into the high end of the British charts with a string of top ten hits the early 90s.

Born in 1972, Bitty's earliest memories were punctuated with the music he would hear courtesy of his father's sound system, where he started by singing over Jamaican Dub and Instrumental riddims.
Cherine Anderson

Cherine Anderson is one of Jamaica’s leading young female singer/songwriters, actress and performers.

In 1992 Fenton started the Reggae Angels.
Judge Roughneck
Judge Roughneck
If you have spent any time at all on the Denver music scene, Judge Roughneck needs no introduction. Their blend of ska & reggae pays tribute to both the early '80's British 2-Tone movement and the original jazz-laced ska of Jamaica, infused with soul, has been electrifying audiences since 1995.

They have headlined every venue you know plus opened for almost every ska and reggae legend who has passed through town including UB40, Burning Spear, Rebelution, General Public, The Skatalites, The Specials, The English Beat, Fishbone, Damian Marley, Steel Pulse, and The Wailers. They have appeared at the prestigious Reggae on the Rocks Festival at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater 15 times.
Gracie Bassie
Gracie Bassie
Getting her start in her hometown of Durango, Colorado, Gracie Bassie has long been moved by the reggae culture and music by surrounding herself with inspiring influences that have helped her to become the confident yet humble musician/artist she is today. In 2008, Gracie bought her first bass guitar and was taught how to play her bass like a real "rootswoman" with the guidance of Jamaican producer Lincoln Jarrett. From there she formed A-DUB-ROCK Band, opening up for acts such as The Mighty Diamonds and Sister Carol. Soon after she was performing at Reggae on the River with Marlon Asher and received a call from musical idol Anthony B, asking her to join his band in Kingston, Jamaica whom she toured with until later residing in Kingston and playing with Earl "Chinna" Smith's "Inna di Yaad" band, backing Max Romeo and his children, alongside Leroy "Horsemouth" drummer from the famous Jamaican movie "Rockers" and many other talented musicians and artists. As much as she loved to play bass, she loved, even more, to sing while playing bass, landing her gigs in Kingston and beyond. Gracie's sound is a perfectly-blended mix consisting of classic old school dub tributes and her own original sounds.
