The Melodians

January 26, 2011 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm


The Melodians, featuring original members Tony Brevett and Trevor McNaughton, are one of Jamaica’s greatest Rocksteady groups. They cut a series of classic singles during the late ’60s and early ’70s that included the internationally famed “Rivers of Babylon” and “Sweet Sensation.” In 1966, when driving rhythms of ska were abandoned in favor of the slower, more soulful Rocksteady, Jamaican performers discovered a freedom of expression they had previously been denied. In overcoming the limitations of ska, the dawn of the Rocksteady age begun. A few groups rose to notoriety with none more popular than The Melodians.
