Throughout their career, House of David Gang has been known for their uplifting roots rock reggae sound, which pays homage to the classic 70's & 80 Jamaican sound mixed with a modern rootsy
Canadian feel. The band takes its name from The House of David, an afterhours spot on Queen Street West in Toronto that was a Rasta hotspot for reasoning, dancing and reggae music from the late 80s until the mid 90s.

After a hiatus in which lead singer King Selah went solo, the band re-energized in 2004 with a revamped line-up, touring relentlessly to clubs & festivals and building a strong grassroots following across Canada. Emerging from bass player/producer Snappy Homefry's Playhouse Studios--after collaborations with over 20 musicians from Canada’s reggae community and with the wisdom of 20 years of songwriting, performing and recording--House of David Gang recently released their finest album yet:Reggae Warrior on NuFunk.ca Records.

DJs Grab the Single "Good To Be Loved" featuring searing saxophone solo of I-Sax (Canada's Dean Fraser)

Watch the band perform "Rain" live on CityTV's Breakfast Television.
