Live Performances by

What do you get when you take musicians from some of the very best reggae bands in South Florida and front them with a country singer from Nashville? Country-Reggae fusion? Hell, YEAH! Mon... Think UB40...with a twang. Country classics, redneck anthems and honky tonk sing-alongs, all played to authentic reggae riddims. Standards by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard, Lynyrd Skynard, et al, as well as new classics from Big & Rich, Zach Brown Band, Florida Georgia Line...songs known by just about everyone, but for the first time played reggae style. The first public appearance for VOODOO POSSUM's was at Kevro's Art Bar in Delray Beach, FL, named "Delray's funkiest bar" by Delray Beach magazine, and voted one of Delray's favorite hotspots by the Palm Beach Post, as well as featured in Rand McNally's "Best of the Road" and on TV's Travel Channel. VOODOO POSSUM played only a 10-song guest set, but the band was immediately asked to be a regular house band at Kevro's. This soon lead to an invitation to play the Colors of the Caribbean Festival in Hollywood, FL last summer. Sharing the stage with monster reggae / soca acts Harmonik, Midnite and Kevin Lyttle (2004's smash hit "Turn Me on"), Colors of the Caribbean had 7,500 in attendance. The predominantly caribbean crowd didn't know what to make of VOODOO POSSUM at first, but lead singer Roscoe worked the crowd and before their set was over there were people singing and dancing to country songs who had never before sang or danced to a country song. This led to the City of Hollywood inviting the band back to play a free concert at Hollywood Artspark for the citizens of Hollywood on November 22nd. This band is ready to explode with a sound that has never before been heard anywhere, and which is familiar and novel at the same time. If you like Country music, you will like VOODOO POSSUM. if you like Reggae music, you will like VOODOO POSSUM. If you like Country Music and you like Reggae music...you will love VOODOO POSSUM! Country Reggae fusion??? Hell, YEAH!!! Mon....
