Fusing authentic roots reggae with touches of jazz and Latin music, Steel Pulse is one of Britain’s great reggae bands. Hailing originally from Burmingham, UK, Steel Pulse got their start opening for punk and new wave bands like The Clash and The Police in the 1970s. By the late 1980s, the group had won a Grammy and successfully broken out of the British Reggae scene to receive international recognition. Three-plus decades later, the group is still delivering their Rastafarian protest reggae to a global audience with relentless fire, and NPR distinguishes them as, “perhaps the last great old-school reggae band left.”
Natural Expression Rhythm Band, a local pan-Caribbean collective comprised of over 25 veteran percussionists, has been storming Brooklyn street festivals, parades, fetes, and outdoor dance parties since 2007. Playing on everything from cowbells to old car parts, the group is known as one of the best “Engine Rooms” – the traditional percussion backbone of steelband and Calypso music—in town.
The BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival is one of New York City's longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals and is held every summer at the Prospect Park Bandshell. View seating arrangements here.
