The Mighty Herbsmen came together through a mutual respect and love of reggae. They have morphed from strangers who jammed once in a while to self-described banditos convening for weekly ritual of pursuing rhythms they describe as simple, joyous and celebratory, rugged and unpretentious.
“We are a true, contemporary Auckland band; diverse yet close-knit without even trying. Each of us has wandered through a multitude of musical styles, but we find in Jamaican reggae and roots music, something we all need. We are from different places, eras and races but the differences fade away when we pursue these rhythms and sing these songs.”
The Mighty Herbsmen want to bring the heat and inclusiveness of classic reggae rhythms to the hot All Souls Night line-up.
