Overview

July 7, 2010 - 9:15pm Subway Stage

This reggae super-group has performed live with Sting, Inxs, Santana, Robert Palmer, Herbie Hancock, Bob Dylan and the band's own idols, Bob Marley & the Wailers, among many others. Cameo appearances by the likes of Branford Marsalis and Robert Townsend have graced their videos. The band features co-founders David Hinds (lead vocals and rhythm guitar) and Selwyn Brown (Vocals and Keyboards).
 
STEEL PULSE have been perfecting their original and distinctly high-energy style of reggae music for a quarter of a century. As the only British reggae group to win a Grammy Award (for Babylon the Bandit), their international success continues to inspire audiences of both new and long-dedicated fans. It has also earned them subsequent Grammy nominations.
 
Their music is an extension of their roots. Always rebels with a cause, the vanguard tends to be where they are. Spike Lee met the group at a fundraising function and soon selected Can't Stand The Heat, written by STEEL PULSE co-founder and lead vocalist David Hinds, for his film Do The Right Thing.
 
STEEL PULSE'S powerful performances have been hailed as "an occasion to contemplate political art's effectiveness," by The New York Times.
 
STEEL PULSE tours worldwide with an eight-piece ensemble including co-founder Selwyn Brown on vocals and keyboards, Clifford "Moonie" Pusey on lead guitar, Alvin Ewen on bass, Sidney Mills on keyboards and Conrad Kelly on drums and percussion.
