Blue King Brown, Australia’s Hottest Urban Roots Export Touring North America with John Brown’s Body

Blue King Brown
Blue King Brown is touring North America y as part of their Moment of Truth Tour. This is Blue King Brown’s third tour of North America over the last 16 months and they are simply one of the best groups to come out of Australia in a long time.
 Touring extensively in Japan, Australia, Canada, and the USA; this 8 piece urban roots band is proven to be breaking ground in the urban roots and youth movement world teaming up with the likes of Damian Marley, Santana and Michael Franti on shows globally. For the March Tour they will be supporting urban-reggae artist John Brown’s Body for most of the run.

Blue King Brown’s live show is an explosive expression of groove, urban beats, hard hitting lyrics mixed in with sultry, smooth vocal styling’s from Natalie Pa’apa’a and more. The rhythm section punches and is tight as you’d want it to be and the set features many surprise to keep you on your toes featuring percussionist and keyboard leads that add flare and at times the deliciously strong backup vocal section takes the spotlight – making it a family affair on stage and the dance floor for all.
