The Freedom Band is a name that has become synonymous with the ruling #1 Professional Reggae Sound in the Western Pennsylvania and Tri-State area. The band maintains a level of performance and musical experience that is unparalleled by any of it's peers.

In 2016, FREEDOM will continue to push forward on the cutting edge, incorporating both the latest reggae sounds and vibes into their performance as well as all the 'classic tracks' that everyone knows and loves. FREEDOM prides itself in being able to cater to any type of crowd - from a Summer backyard pool party to festival audiences of thousands. Ask anyone - our track record speaks for itself.

Freedom regularly performs at numerous popular venues in the Pittsburgh and Western PA area such as Redfin Blues (Washington's Landing), PD's Pub (Squirrel Hill), Shadow Lounge (East Liberty), Spice Cafe (Oakland), Carson City Saloon (South Side), Kelly's Riverside Saloon (Beaver) and Fox Chapel Yacht Club (just to name a few). In past years, Freedom played as the weekly house band at Rosebud (3 consecutive years), The Attic (2 years) and Nick's Fat City 'Reggae Thursdays'(4 years). In addition, the band continues to devote much of it's schedule to playing various private parties and corporate events when that special island flavor is needed to make the event 'just a little bit different' than the norm... Over the years, FREEDOM could be seen performing at major events held at University of Pittsburgh, Butler Community College, Washington & Jefferson College, Phipps Conservatory, Mid-Ohio Valley Multi-Cultural Festival, Pittsburgh Aviary, Hartwood Acres, The River's Casino on the North Side, The Waterfront in Morgantown, WV, Three Rivers Arts Festival, Autumn Leaf Festival, Allegheny County & City of Pittsburgh Parks & Recreation, Westmoreland County Arts Festival, Pittsburgh First Night, M-Squared, and many more!

Throughout the history of the band, Freedom has opened for such international reggae artists as the Meditations, Dennis Brown, Burning Spear, Jimmy Cliff, Eek-A-Mouse, Third World, Andrew Tosh, UB40, Pato Banton, Mad Professor, Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Yellowman, Ben Harper, and Ziggy Marley. In 2005, Freedom had the pleasure of opening for reggae legends THIRD WORLD at Hartwood Acres in front of a crowd of 15,000+!

The FREEDOM Band is Donnie'Dread' (Bass & Vocals),'Chizzy' Chuck (Drums), & Les Bowe (Keys & Vocals), Spencer Geer (Guitar), & Langston Kelly (Saxophone).

FREEDOM always gives thanks for those special people who have always supported the band over the many years - RESPECT DUE! and MUCH LOVE!!!!
