Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths
Led by Trinidad & Tobago native Caleb Hart, The Royal Youths are a Vancouver Island reggae powerhouse. A tight, immaculate sounding band, Hart and the band have been gaining incredible momentum in just a short time, not-so-slowly taking Western Canada by storm. The love of reggae music on display during their performances is nothing short of magical and completely mesmerizing. It's impossible not to be drawn in by the sweet riddims of the and Hart's incredible, elastic voice that can jump from roots reggae smooth to dancehall grimy in the blink of an eye. It's easy to hear and see why Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths are one of the West Coast's hottest acts.
LIVE FROM THE SWAMP! @ The Swamp
Sat. August 21st 2:30pm - 8pm
On Saturday, August 21 enjoy a mix of reggae, rocksteady, hip hop, and funk with Def3, Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths, Phonosonics and Ollie Happyness . All the performers that are on this Saturday line up have been part of our family for a long time but they all have evolved with new material and working with fresh artists.
We're especially excited to welcome back Def3 who is not only one of the most talented hip hop artists in Canada but he's also one of the most talented wild style/mural artists. His art work adorns our live stream sets and our HQ. He'll have a new creation for us to feast our eyes on too. In June of 2021 Def3's most recent album "Weddings and Funerals" w/Late Night Radio recently reached #1 on the charts in Canada on Apple ITunes. This was a huge accomplishment considering other world famous artists such as J. Cole, Lloyd Banks and DMX were 2nd to 5th behind his album.
