Gypsi Fari

"Inspiration Dub" by Gypsi Fari

Originally formed in 1977 by current members Vincent Huckaby (bass) and Leroy Webster (lead vocals), The Gypsi Fari Band has traveled the world and recorded at Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston, with legendary Bob Marley and the Wailers.
Receiving the kind of acclaim in Jamaica usually reserved for only the best "home grown" bands, Gypsi Fari also toured with top-flight bands such as Steel Pulse, Third World, Culture, Bearing Spear and Gil-Scott Heron.

"Perhaps the best raggae band or best all around band in Chicago today is the combined West Indian-American Gypsy Fari."

"Musically the band is extremely versatile-in fact, calling them a Reggae band could be somewhat of a misnomer. With their ability to shift gears easily between roots reggae, calypso, ska, and the more recent dancehall and lover's rock styles, they could be referred to as an all-around Caribbean band-with a dash of world beat, hip hop and Latin influences!"

"The new line-up has a one-drop drum-and-bass groove strong in keyboards backing the unique vocals of Webster...The playing is topnotch with bassist Huckaby's interactive groove and Michael and Ed Shockley's very un-digital drumming and percussion. Percussionist Floyd Donaldson, guitarist Ron Prince and vocalists Rick Dillion and Chaka B round out the sound."
