Toronto’s reggae warriors House of David Gang bring their Bob Marley tribute to Rainbow Room in Port Alberni on Friday, Feb. 27.

House of David Gang is an uplifting Canadian reggae band that draws on the roots sounds of 1970s Kingston, Jamaica.

They carry on the long history of top notch Toronto reggae, taking their name from an after-hours hang out on Queen Street West, which was popular with Toronto’s Rastafarian and reggae community.

Since the release of their album Reggae Warrior on NuFunk Records House of David Gang have become Canada’s hardest touring reggae band. In the past five years, the group has played more than 200 dates across Canada, including headlining sold-out tributes to Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Jamaican 50th Anniversary events. They have shared the stage with top artists such as Xavier Rudd, The Mighty Diamonds, Big Youth, Bushman, Mad Professor, Dawn Penn, Leroy Sibbles, Groundation and Ill Scarlett.

Tickets are $20 apiece, and admission is 19-plus. Showtime is 10 p.m.
