Live Performances by

What do you get when you take some of the very best touring and recording reggae musicians and front them with a country singer from Nashville? Country-Reggae fusion??? HELL, Yeah!!! Mon… Think UB40…with a twang! Country classics & Southern standards, all played to authentic reggae riddims. Songs by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more…songs known by just about everyone, but played reggae-style. Playing festivals and shows in South Florida and as far away as Nashville and Austin, Texas, VOODOO POSSUM explodes on stage with a sound that is novel and unique, yet familiar at the same time. VOODOO POSSUM recently beat out 20 finalists in a fan voting contest to play Austin Reggae Festival in Austin, Texas, April 15-17, 2016. Honored to be considered amongst reggae bands from London, Ivory Coast, Rwanda, Dominica, Namibia, Montreal, Israel, across the USA and of course, Kingston, Jamaica, VOODOO POSSUM won the competition against award-winning reggae bands (including a Grammy winner) which have traversed the globe touring the planet and receiving radio airplay worldwide. 20 bands from 9 countries and 4 continents and VOODOO POSSUM won the fan voting competition. VOODOO POSSUM is the new little band that could and is HOT! No doubt the uniqueness of their country-reggae fusion sound led to VOODOO POSSUM gathering the most fan votes and receiving the coveted invitation to play in Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capitol of the World and home to both the SXSW (South by Southwest) Music Festival and the Austin City Limits Music Festival. VOODOO POSSUM has played before thousands at the Colors of the Caribbean Festival in Hollywood, FL at the Deerfield Beach Wine & Food Festival and the Boca Raton Burger Festival. Plus solo shows such as at The Arts Park at Young Circle for the City of Hollywood, and at honky tonks and juke joints in and around Nashville, TN…Music City USA. Currently, Roscoe, the front man / lead singer from Nashville who arranges the country songs reggae-style and the band are cutting tracks at the legendary reggae band Inner Circle’s Circle House Studios in North Miami (“Bad boys, bad boys…whatcha gonna do?”). The CD is expected to be released late May. With Jamaican reggae musicians who have toured and recorded with reggae and dancehall greats such as Sean Paul, Yellowman, Freddie McGregor, Sly and Robbie, Marcia Griffiths and Ki-Mani Marley, and the smooth country vocals of Roscoe, VOODOO POSSUM’s sound is always authentic reggae riddims…with a twang! If an audience likes reggae music, they will like VOODOO POSSUM. If an audience likes classic country music, they will like VOODOO POSSUM. If an audience likes country classics and they like reggae music…they will love VOODOO POSSUM! Country Reggae fusion??? HELL, Yeah!!! Mon…
