"Spaghetti Western Reggae" "Western Hendrix/Marley Reggae" Dreadlocks meets stetsons in the REGGAE COWBOYS, a guitar-ripping Toronto posse stampeding their way across North American and Europe.

"This band has taken reggae to a new dimension - reggae tinged with blues, country, R&B, jazz." XNews, Jamaica ..."Toronto-based (but tropical-born) Reggae Cowboys, a jamming band with strong appeal to fans of both Bob Marley and the Grateful Dead. " (Philadelphia Daily News) Debut album, "Tell the Truth" was first released in Dec '96 by Pure/MERCURY Records. Follow-up, "Rock Steady Rodeo" was released in Aug '99 by RKYODISC.

CD Reviews

"I have heard this CD daily for the past week. It is something that I crave and sing throughout the day. I really dig the low bass and that wandering lead guitar. These musicians create an atmosphere of the old west and a posse on the road. I respect their message, giving black cowboys credit in history. No sad songs here just a rip roarin' good time!! The Reggae Cowboys have become one of my favorite new bands. Buy the CD, you'll be happy that you did!!"
