JB Trombone and The Jamaican Brothers: Reggae Jazz Ska in Puerto Vallarta
The Puerto Vallarta music scene is recognized for its great variety of rhythms and exponents. On this occasion, the Vallarta Lifestyles editorial team shares an interview with JB Trombone & The Jamaican Brothers, a reggae jazz ska band that was founded in Puerto Vallarta at the end of 2018.
How was JB Trombone & The Jamaican Brothers formed?
“Kevon, Mourice and Kevin had known each other and played together long before JB Trombone came to Puerto Vallarta with the idea of playing reggae and instrumental ska music. After their first performances, during the San Pancho Cultural Festival, Gera appears saying that he plays the tenor saxophone. In this way we find the five musicians that now form JB Trombone & The Jamaican Brothers”.
What musical instruments do you guys play?
“The trombone is played by JB Trombone, Kevon is on piano and synths, Mourice is on bass, Gera is on tenor saxophone and Kevin is on drums.”
What did you see in our destination to pursue their musical career here?
“Basically, the reciprocity of the Mexican and foreign public that arrives in Puerto Vallarta. In addition, this very affectionate effect makes us want to continue staying in the destination for a long time”.
Any LP or record?
“We are about to release our first EP. We will have original songs performed with special guests and two covers to strengthen those musical roots that reggae and ska lovers love so much.”
From your musical career, what has filled you the most with pride/satisfaction?
“The love for our instruments, as well as the respect for the music and the public. Also, the festivals where we were present and the lovely parties playing at sunset”.
