E-mail Print PDF

After a 14 hour drive from Vancouver and a missed time zone, Toronto reggae band House of David Gang was late, but still in the mood to share the love with an intimate audience, Aug. 13 at the Slice.

Vancouver reggae singer Gisto sang the first couple of the songs including one oThe House of David Gang and Gisto at the Slice, Aug. 13. Photo by Richard Ameryf his own with the band then traded the microphone  to King Selah for a guitar for most of the rest of the set.

 Gisto said  because the audience was so intimate, that the band would be trying out a lot of new material like it was a rehearsal they were invited to and promised it would be tight. He was right.

 They channelled the spirit of Bob Marley as they played a couple of songs from their 2012  “Reggae Warrior” album including the title track and several catchy new songs.
 They had a laid back vibe throughout and keyboardist Todd James Britton was playing horns sound on the keyboard to add the the Jamaican feel of the night.

Among the many highlights of the first set from “Reggae Warrior” the title track of their most recent album as well as “Don’t Make Me Cry.”

Their most recent single “Rock and Roll Queen” was also a toe tapping highlight.
 Unfortunately half the audience wandered into the parking lot to smoke and missed most of the show.
 Gisto manned the mic again  for the end of the set
