Junior Reggae is a Bay Area instrumental ska/dub/reggae quartet. Influences range from classic Skatalites recordings of the 1960s to the “Far East Sound” of Augustus Pablo, 1970s dub innovations of Lee “Scratch” Perry and King Tubby and contemporary time-stretching beat making strategies in hip-hop production. The band was founded by bassist and multi-instrumentalist Rob Ewing (Electric Squeezebox Orchestra, Brass Magic) along with longtime collaborator, drummer and composer Jason Levis (Joseph’s Bones, duo B). Building up from the bass and drums foundation, the duo enlisted keyboardist Steven Blum (Bells Atlas, Electric Squeezebox Orchestra) working as a trio for some time before adding the final member of the group, trumpeter Max Miller-Loran (Invisible Inc., Brass Magic). The group is currently finishing its debut album, scheduled for release in Fall 2018.
