Their groove is “now school,” defined as original, relevant, provocative and controversial at times, but clean. The band members include Ashaka on lead vocal; Kelly Williams on bass; Karl Acon on keyboard; and Doshie Griffin on Drums. These musicians, based in St Louis, Missouri, are leaders in their respective craft. They have all performed with the best of the reggae bands in the Illinois-Missouri bi-state. Ashaka has now joined forces with them to forge what is now the new “now school” reggae band, Ashaka and the RamJamReggae Band.
