The Debonaires released their first album, Groovin’ After Sundown, in 1998. To date, they have released two additional albums, Debonaires (2001) and Longshout (2005), and have been featured on numerous compilations throughout the US and Europe. In the early to mid 2000’s, the band completed multiple national tours and had the great privilege of opening for several highly celebrated ska artists including The Skatalites, Desmond Dekker, Laurel Aitken, Phyllis Dillon, Justin Hindes, Rico Rodriguez, The Specials and Hepcat. Although constantly paying homage to the creators of reggae music, The Debonaires have captivated an emerging generation of ska and reggae enthusiasts, often sharing the stage with modern ska, punk, funk and rock bands like Fishbone, The Slackers, Voodoo Glow Skulls and The Aggrolites. What has emerged from their talents and enduring dedication to their craft has been the band’s ability to bridge traditional genre with the modern sounds and rhythms of today’s generation of ska/jazz/blues music followers. The Debonaires are currently recording their 4th album, titled "Movin'" featuring guests Angelo Moore from Fishbone and Chris Murray.
Slated to release in the Fall of 2011, this is a highly anticipated album for the Ska world, and one not to be missed! Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
