Don’t miss this THELMA favorite! Unity the Band is an award-winning original roots reggae group based in Wisconsin. They have been nominated for 2018-2019 Artist of the Year and 2019 World/Reggae/Ska/Latin and are the 2018 WAMI winner for World/Reggae/Ska/Latin. Their intense touring schedule of varied venues around the Midwest has honed an interactive outdoor stage show with positive party vibes and the knack for drawing club crowds into the irie groove.

 

 

 

They treat fans to original music blending with influences of roots, rock, blues, funk and reggae into their own unique sound. Fronted with island-smooth energetic confidence by Kai “Pita” Katobalavu on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, the band’s talents includes the smooth bass lines of Tim Perkins, Anthony Robert Bessen laid-back guitar riffs and vocals, the cool intensity of Logan Pier on keyboards and innovative steady ease of Kelvin Ayres behind the drum set. 

 

Bar opens at 6 pm.
Unity the Band starts at 7 pm.
