Hailing from Kirikiriroa in Aotearoa (Hamilton in New Zealand) KATCHAFIRE have become a global roots reggae phenomenon with the all-Maori band bringing their pure classic sound to music lovers worldwide delivering one of the most authentic Reggae shows around. With six successful albums, multiple awards, platinum sales, hit singles, and a massive fanbase selling out shows around the world, 2023 sees KATCHAFIRE continue to expand and tour all across the globe again.
Their sound is built on the foundations of classic roots reggae with an R’n’B and funk rub, fusing modern dancehall and with catchy pop, infectious grooves and uplifting vibes. Built on a family movement, it all started when lead guitarist Grenville Bell, father of lead singer Logan Bell & drummer Jordan Bell, moved into an apartment building in town with his then teenage sons where they could make music all night, and the rest is history…
They released their latest single “Always With You” at the end of 2022. Last year saw the band finally ‘back on the road again’ with tours to Australia, Europe, USA, Canada, South America & Bali and in 2023 the band are only looking to continue!.
There is no stopping the ‘Fire!!
