Island Head Musicians (Band) – Instrumental Reggae


Island Head visited SiriusXM Studios in New York City where they performed three songs exclusively for the reggae radio station “The Joint” on channel 42.  Program director Pat McKay hosted an interview with the band.  “We had so much fun hangin’ with Pat.  We had a lot of laughs and she is so cool”, said sax player Timmy Cappello.  Pat teased Timmy about his on-stage sexual innuendos during his touring days with Tina Turner.  Pat said; “She came on to you, didn’t she”?  The room burst into laughter as Timmy said; “I ain’t sayin’ nothin'”.

When it came time to play the band got serious as they did new versions of “Burnin’ and Lootin’ and “Punky Reggae Party”, both Bob Marley and The Wailers covers.  The band’s instrumental version of Bob Marley’s “So Much Trouble in the World” has been airing for months on The Joint.  Now, the live version is also being aired.

You can catch all three live performances on SiriusXM as well as some studio cuts from the album “Punky Reggae Party”.
