A number 1 hit and sharing the stage with Bob Marley!

As if a number 1 hit wasn't enough, Locksley Giche has shared the stage with some of the greatest Reggae artists of all time including Bob Marley. 

This weeks guest Cimarons band member Locksley is a pioneer, who has paved the way in the world of Reggae. 

Locksley has collectively been a Session musician and backing band for many artists, including: Pat Kelly, Ken Boothe, Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker, Derrick Morgan. 

Being Trojan Record Company’s ‘House band’; Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis, Stranger Cole, Slim Smith, Toots & the Maytals and Marvels have all benefitted from this band’s high calibre of musicianship. Also part of the first Reggae band to perform live in Spain and Paris, and in 1974, they were the first reggae band to tour Japan (with The Pioneers). Later that year, the band backed Bob Marley and Johnny Nash on their first UK national tour. 

They have far too many credentials, collaborations and accolades to list right now but as well as being Reggae ambassadors since 1960s; In 2013, the band was given a plaque by Brent Federation of Reggae Music & Brent Council, which is sited at Tavistock Church Hall, in Harlesden, North West London. 

In this extended interview he shares many stories from his epic journey around the world, his story with Bob Marley and his wisdom on the music industry. 

This is a story from a pure heart. A brother whos roots, soul and spirit are at one with Reggae music.
