These guys produce “iriginal” roots reggae with five part harmonies backed by 150 man-years of stage experience.

Their Texas roots country alter-ego is the band, “Stop the Truck”. Lineup includes Moe Monsarrat – lead vocals, bass guitar, Miguel Pankratz on Drums, Steve Carter – rhythm guitar, Ed Ferguson on lead, Pat McCann guitar, Matt Jacobs on keys, Mark Wilson tenor/bass sax/flute as well as Donny Silverman on sax/flute. They have opened for many of the original reggae stars including Luciano, Freddie McGregor, Third World, Morgan Heritage, the Skatalites, the Meditations, Yellowman and the Sagittarius Band, the Mighty Diamonds, the Itals, Israel Vibration and more. Just close your eyes and listen and you’ll be transported to Jamaica on their magical wave of riddems . . .
