Featuring: Mostly Marley & Phase III Steelband
Mostly Marley formed in 2003 with the idea of bringing Classic Reggae to an otherwise starving audience. The name stems from having been asked; "What kind of music do you play?" The answer would always be; "Classic Reggae by various artists, but mostly Marley." Mostly Marley performs with passion while always remaining true to the spirit of Reggae. This is a band that takes you on a musical odyssey -- with good times to be had by all.
Mostly Marley is:
Billy Mendoza - bass
A much traveled and experienced musician whose consistent and tasteful playing contains the glue that holds it all together.
Russ Klyne - guitar
A gifted and successful guitarist that has worked with a bunch of major label artists such as Sarah McLachlan, Bif Naked, Rascalz, and Nelly Furtado. He is also the former lead guitarist of the 90’s alternative fusion band Salvador Dream.
Tim Proznick - drums
One of Vancouver's most sought after musicians. Credits include: local recordings with Rap/Hip Hop artists Kia Kadiri, Mocha Only, Swollen Members, Soulstream, and numerous other recording artists.
Mike Henry - vocals
Having been raised in Southern USA, Mike is well rooted in Old School Funk, Soul, Gospel and Blues. He has borrowed from each genre taking what works for his particular style. He learned to love reggae later in his 20's. When it comes to Bob Marley, Mike has come to appreciate the man and his message and what he meant to so many; his fellow Jamaicans firstly and the effect he had on the rest of the world. The more Mike experiences this music the more he has come to realize that it is not just where you hail from, Reggae is a state of mind because you feel the music in your soul. Peter Tosh put it best in saying that; "No matter where you come from, you're an African."
