We here at JUMP UP are extremely proud to release the 4th full length album from Riverside’s THE DEBONAIRES, one of THE most soulful ska/reggae bands to come from the USA. We loved this record as soon as we heard it, “Movin'” features 14 tracks including guest vocals from Angelo Moore from Fishbone, Chris Murray and Vic Ruggiero of The Slackers. They play wicked roots/country reggae with magical harmonies AND killer ska tunes – including an amazing cover of Eric “Monty” Morris’ “Oil In My Lamp” featuring Angelo on vocals!
The Debonaires incorporate soul, jazz and funk while remaining ever faithful to the Jamaican sounds of ska, rocksteady and reggae music. Born out of Riverside, California in 1995, The Debonaires released their debut album “Groovin’ After Sundown” on Rivercidal Syndicate Records in 1998 and quickly gained a devout following throughout Southern California1s healthy traditional ska/reggae scene. Witness one show and you1re hooked for life – a mix of James Brown popcorn funk, a heavy dose of Roy Ayers style groove, Afro-Caribbean rhythms straight out of Mongo Santamaria1s textbook – topped off with sweet Jamaican roots reggae and ska that would have seen the TROJAN or PAMA imprint back in the day.
