John Brown’s Body has hopped all around the US these past few months. To start out their New Year, Boston’s Future-Roots outfit has announced a return to the Southeastern corner of the nation in February.
After touring this past fall through the Northeast with Groundation and then with Stick Figure through parts of California as well as touring Colorado to Chicago, JBB has been every where and are finally heading down south.
Starting the year by joining up with Silverback’s The Pimps of Joytime for three nights through the Northeast during the end of January, JBB will then play a string of shows running the later half of February from West Virginia down to Miami for a spot the 3rd Annual Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance.
JBB continues to tour on the strength of their discography, including their 2008 chart-topping release Amplify, and their recently released 8th studio album Kings And Queens, via Easy Star Records. An album that could easily be one of reggae’s best in 2013. With Kings and Queens, John Brown’s Body fuses and pushes musical boundaries demonstrating the diversity in the “American Reggae” genre.
