House of David Gang (Toronto, Ontario)

Dubbed Canada's "Reggae Warriors," House of David Gang is an authentic reggae band that delivers late 70s and early 80s-style Jamaican reggae originals; mixed with folk, soul, calypso, afrobeat and hip-hop influences.

The band takes its name from the House of David, an after-hours spot that was a hotspot for artists from the Toronto's burgeoning Rastafarian and reggae community from the late 80’s until the mid-90’s.

After a brief hiatus the band re-energized in 2004 with a revamped line-up, touring relentlessly in clubs & festivals, building a strong grassroots following across Canada.

After collaborations with over 20 musicians from Canada's reggae community, and with the wisdom of 20 years of songwriting, performing and recording, House of David Gang recently emerged from bass player/producer Snappy Homefry's Playhouse Studio, releasing their finest album to date "ReggaeWarrior" on Records.
