About the Band: Babylon Rockers
Drawing from influences from the Caribbean, Pacific Islands, to California and back again, Babylon Rockers set out to bring reggae music to everyone! Their live shows are a mixture of their original songs, reggae favorites and some lesser-known rare gems that everyone should know.  To put it simply, Babylon Rockers is an expression of the true global nature and evolution of reggae music as a genre.  It’s transgenerational, global, one love music, with their own unique flavor sprinkled in.  All ages, all people, altogether, Babylon Rockers!
