Ali Campbell, former lead singer of UB40: With his cropped red hair and sleek suits, Ali Campbell doesn’t look like a typical reggae star. But the singer has been crooning reggae-tinged tunes for decades, topping the charts with “Red Red Wine,” “Kingston Town,” and “Can’t Help Falling In Love.” Backed by infectious keyboards, horns, and a boogieing rhythm section, Campbell belts out classics and new tracks from his solo albums, from “Don’t Shoot the Messenger” to “What You Gonna Do Bout It.”
Other Performers Include:
Common Kings: Hawaiian quintet intermingles reggae, rock, R&B, and soul into a groove-heavy blend.
HiRemedy of Hawaii: Island reggae sounds from band comprised of former members of Kolohe Kai and Rebel SoulJahz.
Kapena of Hawaii: Veteran band has released 20 albums that encapsulate the Island sound found on Tonga, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa New Zealand, and Hawaii.
Opihi Pickers of Hawaii: Ukulele virtuoso Imua Garza leads a quartet that blends Island and contemporary music.
Rebel SoulJahz: Four vocalists join keyboardists, guitarists, a drummer, and a bass player to create smooth, R&B-tinged reggae.<p>
