Hailing from the mighty H-Town (Hamilton), Aoteoroa (New Zealand), Katchafire, have become a global roots reggae phenomenon. The all Pacific Reggae band bring their pure classic sound to music lovers worldwide, delivering one of the most authentic Reggae shows around today.

Katchafire are an 8 piece collective of multi talented songwriters and musicians and have become a staple on the Californian and Pacific Roots scenes.

With nearly two decades of success that has spanned over four successful studio platinum selling albums, international stadium tours, festival headline slots and the departure of long time band members Grenville Bell (Papa G) James Ferguson and Hani Totorewa this year. The remaining founding members, and principle songwriters, joined by Jamaican native Stephen Maxwell on the Keys and Horn extraordinaire Rafa Postel are stronger than ever and moving forward with new music and sound keeping the Katchafire legacy alive and burning.

The fire continues to get hotter this summer after securing headline slots at major Reggae Festivals in Europe in July and August - Summerjam, Boomtown, Sun Ska, Sunsplash and supporting Jimmy Cliff on some of his tour - Katchafire then plan to hit the US shores with a jam packed live show, with new music and explosions of energy and new reggae sensations Nattali Rize and Notis will be on the road as support.

Also Hawaii’s finest Iration has invited Katchafire to join them on stage for their shows in Las Vegas and San Diego, which will be a true reggae performance.

2015 is proving to be a productive year with new music set to be released, including collaborations with Dub Inc and Rebelution.Their latest single ‘Down With You’, written by Katchafire’s drumming legend Jordan Bell ranked No. #3 for best Reggae single on Itunes . The song has made a trip around the globe, written in New Zealand and then recorded in Bob Marley’s legendary Tuff Gong Studios in Jamaica, ‘Down With You’ has been on high rotation ever since. .The momentum just continues to grow; there is no stopping the fire!

Bringing the ultimate reggae experience to Australia’s shores, Katchafire are on the road again from 10th September to 4th October 2015.
