Following an extensive west coast fall tour, John Brown’s Body will continue their persistence. The next region on the map to cover is the southeast, and mainly, both of the Carolinas and Florida.
After spending the better part of October and early November traveling through the western states, JBB will begin their southeastern tour on November 27th. All of these live performances for JBB are in support of their recent September 18th release, JBB in Dub, released via Easy Star Records. The dub release embodies both their classic reggae roots, as well as their progressive new-school dub style. The track list includes 6-dub tracks, as well as, a recorded version of “The Grass”, which features vocals from JBB front man Elliot Martin.
John Brown’s Body is an extremely professional band during live performances, while still giving the entire crowd one of the best live experiences of their lives, and that is not an understatement. So, the southeast region of the United States has been warned!
For this portion of the tour, North Carolina’s very own Toubab Krewe will lend support for John Brown’s Body. If you have never heard of Toubab Krewe before, their sound is a mixture of new standards of rock ‘n’ roll and west African music. The tour will span 11-dates, beginning at the Visulite Theatre in Charlotte, North Carlolina, before concluding at Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Culture Room.
If you are interested in any of the upcoming shows, JBB is releasing recent live soundboard audio from their fall tour. Some of the songs include “The General’s Ambush” Live from Colorado, “Wellington” Live from Syracuse, NY, and “The Ring” Live from Rochester, NY. Along with these recent additions, JBB’s SoundCloud includes their entire JBB in Dub album, as well as many more sounds for your listening pleasure.
