Duppy Conquerors

a tribute to Bob Marley

If you love Bob Marley, you’ll love the Duppy Conquerors!

Bob Marley’s “Kaya” album is perhaps his most misunderstood record, one written off as inferior to its predecessor “Exodus” and lacking in the miltant commentary that would resume on “Survival.”

“The crowd, equally as diverse as the band itself, enjoyed the music, dancing until the early hours of the morning and letting go of themselves to the immortal melodies of Bob Marley. After the spot-on rendition of Bob Marley’ s (album) Exodus, the band played a mixed set including hits like “ Is this Love,” “ Could you be Loved,” and “ No Woman No Cry.” Mixed in with the hits, the band played rarities like “Hammer” an electrifying rendition of “Simmer Down” that brought the entire audience to their feet, and the classic first recording of Bob Marley’ s repertoire “One Cup of Coffee.””

“From the start of the night to the finish, well past midnight, the Duppy Conquerors put on and keep up a lively show. Though they play for hours, churning out songs one after the other, they never look or sound tired. In fact, as time passes and we all move further and further down the setlist, it seems like the band becomes more energized instead of less. The Duppy Conquerors are an impassioned bunch of people who pour their heart and soul into their music and their performances.”
