DrumSet Update

Of Afrika Band

Got some more news to share with you our friends. We are still awaiting feedback on the Traps Drumset that is neing worked on my bredren Junior. Also had a meeting at the Jamaica Association of Composers and Publishers (JACAP) and Desi Roots is also a member so I got a chance to chat with him afterwards. He too is still working on trying to locate a suitable drum set for us. The really sad thing about all this is, our rehearsals will be on hold until we obtain a drumtset. It is also affecting band chemistry but we are trusting that this too shall pass. We got lots of studio work to do as we are trying to release this new EP later this year and there are about seven or eight songs that we will need to complete in order to do so.

I really love singing this song. Here's a dodgy video of it!

Drumset In Sight (I Think)

Of Afrika Band

Well I had a chat with a bredren who I had not seen from about 1967 while in prep school, but who I know is a drummer. We have chatted a few times last year on the telephone but had not met in person. So happens that last week I had stopped by Music Mart and was looking at some drums and met up with this drummer who was surprisingly very very tall but we had a great chat and I met another gentleman whose gave his name at the time, anyway I couldn't stay very long as I had to go pick up one of my axes from Prekke. Well a few mornings ago i called up my buddy from prep school and told him of my predicament and asked if he had a drumset that he could sell. He told me that he has a friend with a set that was for sale and he gave me his friends name. Well I remembered that I had met this friend at Music Mart last week and I said what a coincidence and told him that I met this bredren at Music Mart lastweek. I told him that I met his friend who was there with a very tall drummer and lo and hehold he started to laugh and told me, he was the tall drummer that I met too. So we both started to laugh, what a remarkable coincidence. The last time I saw him he was a bit shorter than me at the time and had a little more weight around his middle. We were both about 7 years old at the time. Well, so happens he is trying to get a set for me. Told me he sold one to a friend who has it just sitting in a room and not being used. Well we are keeping our fingers and toes crossed while hoping that this works out. Here is what it looks like.

Rootz Afrika Update

Of Afrika BandHad a discussion with Desi Roots last night. He was working on the Rootz Afrika song. I suspect that there are going to be changes that he wants us to make. We are absolutely fine with that. He is still working on locating a drumset for us as well. In the mean time I am working on the progression for Blood On Their Hands and I Love You [Message To The World]. Will let you know as soon as we are ready with these songs. Am also working on Curtain Of Rain and trying to finish the lyrics on Righteous Rastaman, Take It Back and A Day Of Praise.

Sneak Peek at Rootz Afrika

Of Afrika BandHello, hello, hello. Yes we have decided to grant some of your wishes. To this end we have decided to share a 'snippet' of Rootz Afrika DEMO that was recorded a few days ago. We wish to point out  that the voice that you will hear is our sax man Shekinah, however Desi Roots will be recording the song with us and Shekinah will be on sax and probably background vocals if nededed, when we hit the studio. Note also that we have inserted a disturbances in this sneak peek (for obvious reasons) and the entire thing is just about 54 seconds whereas the song when recorded will be about 3:45 minutes. Here is the link That is all for now so please keep checking back with us. CHEERS!!!

Hunting A Drumset & Rootz Afrika Update

Of Afrika BandHad a discussion with Desi Roots yesterday and gave him the demo for Rootz Afrika along with the lyrics and chord changes. As a professional and more so, a well established internationally acclaimed singer he may want to make a few changes to the melody that we gave to him, He might even want a few chord changes too. That is fine with all of us in Of Afrika. I also asked for his help in locating a drumset for us. We have a very limited budget and besides, we don't really need a 'top of the line' set just yet. We will build slowly as we go along. YES it may make perfect sense to get a world class set right from the start but we are unable to do as a consequence of budgetary constraints. Desi is well connected AND well respected so we are definitely looking forward to positive results from him on this search. Well, that is all for now but keep coming back and checking out out website. Remember to keep the comments and feedback coming. We read EVERY ONE of them. CHEERS!!!

New Drummer

Of Afrika BandYes, we got a drummer. Mr Oraine Wallace. Will be saying more about him and posting his information here on our website, in a little while. As you can see, little by little we are moving ahead. We will be giving away a few songs in the very near future, so please keep in touch with us here at our website, because when we start giving them away, we will NOT be tweeting about it, we will simply post the notices and the links here. How selfish is that? Ha ha ha. Naw, not selfish, we just want you our friends to keep coming back and checking us out at all times. Our website is our home on The Internet and it is as much yours as it is ours. We want you to enjoy it just as much as we do. We have been getting a lot of feedback/comments and we do look forward to ALL such and we will act of those which we believe we can do quite easily, first. Others may need some more thought and planning on our part but we WILL eventually get to action ALL the suggestions that we have received so far. So until out next posting, stay safe, enjoy our music and live your life the way it pleases YOU (ie. providing that does NOT include interfering anyone else's life). CHEERS and Ase!!!

Of Afrika Band

Just completed the demo of Rootz Afrika using an automated rhythm section and percussions. Sending the demo to Desi Roots now for him to familiarise himself with the song and how we play it. Sounding KILLER even if we say so. The voice on the demo is none ofther than that of our Sax man Mr Shekina Ade-Gold. Bredren you are an absolutely great singer. Nuff love and respec' fih dat. Blessings. NO we are not going to give a pre-release. Sorry but you our dear beloved friends will have to await the completed song and download it from iTunes. It will be worth the wait though. It is what we do. Roots Reggae. Until such time. Blessings everyone. Thank you so much for checking this out. CHEERS!!!

Desi Roots to record Rootz Afrika with The Of Afrika Band

Of Afrika Band

A lot has happened since our last update. We are still without a drummer however we are taking steps to remedy that situation. Together with this we are getting ready to record a song which we wrote some time back in either late 2014 or early 2015. This is none other than Roots Afrika and my bonafide bredren, veteran singer and internationally aclaimed personality Mr Desmond Young aka Desi Roots has agreed to do this song with us. This man is a genius and he was there when it all started. He used to sing along with such singers as the late great Mr Jacob 'Killa' Miller and was a resident performer at the famous Jonkanoo Lounge. His music is exceptional and here we provide a quick YouTube link to some for you https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=desi+roots BIG Love fih yuh Desi Roots. Big Respec' mih bredren.

The Monthly Articles

TMA 25

Ultimate Hits 2 is available on   https://scraprabbit.bandcamp.com/  with 20 amazing new songs with new zest added. The cover features me with my bagpipes. This album is made of some of the other music albums made in 2015 that were mainly recorded in October and November and is worth it just for track 4 alone. Unfortunately the version doesn't exist without the horns as I got ahead of myself and just saved the version with. The album was free on Christmas 2015!

Along with it I've made new art galleries, videos, and comics on the side. Still grieving over the loss of Season 2. I was at the dentist laughing about the video with hooks in my mouth and when I returned found the video missing! Also the strange 'lumpy gray hamburger' play -fell down the chimney and landed on Storm Seizure made in 2001. Once again proving the unpredictability of the SS channel.

Happy New Year from Ramblin' Jack Elliott

The year rolled along like a wandering cattle herd throught the Texas badlands....with tours of the North East, Mid-West, all over Texas and the Northwest.  

This year you'll see Jack appearing in San Franciscio in March and in Southern California in late Spring. Check the website often for update as they come in.

Adios and Happy New Year.....for now!

Work Continues On Our Website

Of Afrika Band

Work continues on our website as little by little we are getting it done. The New Year has started and we are still trying to locate a suitable place in which to rehearse. This is further complicated by the fact that persons as far away as Europe and Asia have asked to watch us rehearse. We always welcome requests such as these and we trust we will be able to visit with you soon. There is a drummer with whom I have previously worked who I am thinking of using again. Lets us see if he will be happy to come work with us.

Periscope App

Of Afrika Band

Ok, so a few persons have messaged me, wanting to see our rehearsals live. Well we might just decide to accomodfate you, by broadcasting our rehearsals live via the Periscope App, but first we have to put it to a vote. So if you really want to be there right in the mix with us as we rehearse, we are suggesting that you install the app right away and follow @akua_kamau there.

Rich Hamer & PLYMOUTH GUITAR SCHOOL™

Tanzanite Manouche

This year Rich Hamer will be picking up his manouche guitar for some lush gypsy jazz as a sideline to his long-standing favourite project, Hamer & Co. He'll be hitting UK venues to perform with Tanzanite Manouche in the near future... 

Violinist and band-leader Kitty Heardman welcomed Rich and Frank into Tanzanite Manouche after she made a guest appearance at a Hamer & Co show in 2015. She now has the guys playing swingin' 1930's European jazz a la Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli with her - and they can turn out some large sound for a small outfit! So whip out your top hat and tails folks, 'cos the Manouche are coming to a venue near you soon...

Band & Website Reorganization

Of Afrika Band

We have been reorganising ourselves and as such have been very busy for the past couple of weeks. Our website have also been undergoing some amount of reorganisation and rework. We now have a Splash Screen as well as a Members page on which we highlight our members with clickable images which allow our friends and site visitors to view band members' bio. This is still a work in progress hence not all the information has been posted just yet. There are two vacancies which we hope to fill in the very near future especially that of the drummer. Addiyionally, we wish to find a female who does vocals and ideally is also a percussionist.

The yearly love in!

Well it is that time of the year again - The final day of 2015 - and this means time to reflect on it all. There has been lots that have happened and tons have been achieved and none of it would have been possible without the help of many different, wonderful people and so it's time for me to show my gratitude.

So, let the love begin!

Firstly, to all the venues and promoters that have booked me and had me come and play, thank you. I've notched up hundreds more gigs this year and made many new fans and been able to perform a whole ream of new songs. Particular thanks goes to Chris Harrison and Ant Buck, who continue to be the fairest and most artist friendly promoters in the city of London who care about keeping music live. Thanks for all the bookings and I look forward to more next year.

Thanks also goes to Threshold Sports, namely Amanda Hassett and Maz Hedley-Lewis, for their continuely giving me corporate bookings and also Gordon Brown (not that one!) for keep getting me back to perform for the Rugby boys at the OMT.

My music got a lot of plays this year on various radio stations, but one stood head and shoulders above the rest with a constant use of my music and so thank you to all the DJ's at Croydon Radio for that. Special thanks goes to James and Kylie from the 'Live this week show' who have championed me on their show on more than a few occassions! 

As well as radio, thanks goes to all the websites and magazines that have featured me this year. There has been a lot of very kind articles and I am very grateful for each and everyone. Special shout out as always goes to the House in the Sand music blog and more directly to Miss Vanessa 'Jetwash', for being a long time supporter of my music and also for having one of the best music blogs on the net! 

2015 also was a year of recording. It was a very long process but 'The Raging Sea' album was completed this year, (due for release in March 2016) and it was a process that needed the help of a lot of people. So, thanks goes to James Grant, Tasha Taylor-Johnson, Ricardo Piazza, Benjamin Wingås, Antonio, Jesús Daniel Torres, Michael Jenner for your amazing skills and talents. But none of the recording would have got done without the legends that are MIrko Simoni and Rodrigo Roura - We made a belter boys! 


And whilst we're on the subject of the album I want to thank Valentina Rutigiano for doing the artwork for me. It is exactly how I imagined it in my brain box so I am very happy indeed!! 

The Engine Rooms rehearsal studios is where The One Ts have honed thier craft and we also have had the pleasure of playing a gig there and being recorded for their youtube channel. So, thank you to Issak Rushton and Lewis Edwards for having Londons premier rehearsal studios!! 


And seamlessly we move on to The One Ts. We went from a 4 piece down to a 3 piece mid year, as the greatest guitar player I've had the pleasure of working with, Sir Paul Andrews AKA Pobbles, was set free! I want to thank Paul for his incredible contribution to the band and the amazing gigs we did together and I look forward to playing some shows with his new outfit in 2016. 

But I owe a HUGE debt of gratitude to Chris Spore and James Grant for their incredible talent and musical skills. The One Ts have proved how big a sound and how great we are as a three piece. We have played a heap of fantastic gigs and we continue to get better, to achieve more and 2016 looks set to be an exciting time for us. 

And finally, (as this is probably gone on for long enough!), a big thank you goes to all of you around the globe that have supported me whether that be coming to my gigs, buying or streaming my music or simply sending me messages of encoragement. I wouldn't be able to do what I do without you, so here's a virtual high five to each and everyone of you! 

Let's also take a moment to remember the lost greats of 2015: Cilla, Lemmy, B.B King, Ben E. King and Percy Sledge. RIP. 

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year and I look forward to releasing new music and playing many more live shows for you all!

Merry Christmas!!

Well look at that, once again we find ourselves celebrating the birthday of a compelte stranger. Good times! 

I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and I thought I would do it through the only way I knew how - Via the medium of music!

Now the old vocals have been a bit rough, what with this bloody Laryngitis following me about still, so keep that in mind but as with all presents, it's the thought that counts, eh?!

Loads of festive love and cheer. I hope you all get what you want from Father Christmas, Christ knows you deserve it and if he knows then you should be set right?!

The biggest of Christmas loves!
