The Majestic – Roots Rock Reggae – Summer 2023

The Majest Band

The Majestic is a Roots Rock Reggae band taking some of the liveliest parts of reggae and an eclectic set of influences. With a diversity of origins comes an infectious blend of British and Jamaican music. They will be headlining our Friday Night Dance at Summer Gathering 2023. Tickets available only from radicalbakers.org/summer-gathering.

The Majestic was formed in the early 1980s by band leader Baba Ras, with its initial success leading to a tour supporting Misty in Roots, and culminating in the Stonehenge Festival of ‘83 alongside Hawkwind. The band then went on hiatus until 2011, when they returned to the UK scene for a second time, racking up an impressive three hundred-plus shows in their first three years. Bit by bit, a gradual change in line up culminated in the six-piece performing today. With a traditional riddim section mixed with rocky guitar leads and saxophone hooks, the Majestic promise a wild spectacle.
