John Brown's Body Returns to the Studio and The Stage with Kings and Queens

John Brown's Body, one of the dopest bands on the planet creating and representing contemporary roots reggae music is about to tour the USA in support of their new album, Kings and Queens, out April 16, 2013 on Easy-Star Records.  JBB has been working for years to build a solid reputation around their world-class musicianship and stage presence.  I've seen them perform several times in venues large and small, and they never neglect to put on an amazing show.  Lead singer Elliot Martin is the focal point on stage but the tight horn section and funky rhythm section keep things skanking along nicely throughout.  JBB is touring coast to coast, so find a way to catch them live.  You won't be disappointed.
