Just a note that Los Angeles based act The Lions, the group that released one of the best collections of the last five years “Jungle Struttin”, are hard at work on a brand new collection and it will be even better then the last. I can say that having heard a cut already. They are recording with various JA legends including Leroy Sibbles of Heptones fame!

This makes me look forward to later this year even more. The last collection kind of took LA by storm really surprising more then a few heads who had not heard of the band as they were very new on the scene having only played a few gigs at that time.

The band is made up of various long time professionals from Breakestra, Connie Price and the Keystones, Rhythm Roots All-Stars, Orgone, Sound Directions, Plant Life, Poetics and Macy Gray just to name a few though so we won’t expect anything less.

We did a listening party at the time of the release and it was a blast. Can’t wait to hear the finished goods on this one!

Check out this video of them playing the Sunset Junction in Silverlake.

The will be playing at the Continental Room in Fullerton on March 12th. It’s always free there and loads of fun so check it out if you can.

Jungle Struttin is still available from Ubiquity Records, itunes & emusic and I highly recommend it.

Stay tuned for more……..

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
