The Beatdown

The Beatdown

by John B. Nov 4, 2012

Northern reggae.

This hardworking four-piece outfit has a deep and unyielding passion for roots reggae, ska and Jamaican music while adding their own elements of 60’s soul delivered with a gritty and uncompromising punk rock ethic. Formed out of the ashes of the now legendary trad ska soul band The One Night Band, The Beatdown bring the heavy heavy reggae sound to the masses with their explosive recordings and energetic live shows. Although the band formed less than a year ago they have toured more than 10 countries sharing the stage with Vernon Maytone (The Maytones), The Slackers, The Planet Smashers, Chris Murray, U-Roy, Subb and The Johnstones just to name a few and have enjoyed top billing at the Montreal International Reggae Festival, Montreal Ska Fest and the Ottawa Ska Fest among others.
