Hailing from the mighty H-Town (Hamilton), Aoteoroa (New Zealand), KATCHAFIRE, have become a global roots reggae phenomenon..The all Maori Reggae band, bring their pure classic sound to music lovers worldwide, delivering one of the most authentic Reggae shows around today.

4 highly succesful studio albums, mulitple awards, platinum sales, highest selling singles, and the list goes on.. Their sound is built on the foundations of classic roots reggae with an R’n’B and funk rub, mashing modern dancehall and slinky reggae pop. Katchafire has crafted a universal vibe, capturing something truly special in a diversity of instrumentation and clarity of sound.

Built on a family movement, It all started when lead guitarist Grenville Bell, father of Lead Singer Logan Bell & Drummer / singer / songwriter Jordan Bell, moved into an apartment building in town with his then teenage sons where they could make music all night, and the rest is history.. Countless jams and sell out concerts later they are now an 8 piece collective of multi talented songwriters and musicians and have become a staple on the Californian and Pacific Roots scenes. The fire just continues to get hotter following invitations to acclaimed events such as Glastonbury, opening circuits through Europe, Portugal and Brazil, as demand continues to grow for the non-stop feel good vibe of their incredible live shows.

“The crowd reaction indicated that almost every song played was a crowd favourite in itself.” Fasterlouder

Their popularity and critical acclaim has seen them share the stage with artists from Damien Marley, Steel Pulse, UB40, The Wailers, to Michael Franti and Spearhead and many more.. They’ve garnered respect from the likes of Don Letts (acclaimed documentary maker and Clash tour DJ), music journalist David Katz, and have been championed on the airwaves by radio legends such as Steve Barker (BBC), Charlie Gillet (BBC) and David Rodigan (Kiss FM and others) name a few of a very long list.

“Katchafire just keep coming up with goods. Their songwriting ability over the years has become second-to-none and time has allowed them to develop older songs to a point of perfection.” artsHub

Their latest release ‘Best So Far’ tips the hat to Katchafire’s classics in one amazing compilation for music lovers around the world, while the band is deep in studio mode creating their upcoming highly anticipated 5th Studio album.. The momentum just continues to grow, there is no stopping the fire.

    Our intrigue began while we danced closer each other than I’d ever experienced before, mostly to reggae in North PDX…we are celebrating 5 years together, sharing music, dancing, choosing to love the other.

  21. Keith September 13, 2014 at 11:17 pm #

    I think they got a river that runs through H-Town, as well as a snow capped peak nearby. Shoulda called it P-Town! I’d love to chat with these guys and see if they could stuff me in a drum on the way home.

  22. Stacie September 14, 2014 at 3:47 am #

    Love katchafire! caught them in concert once in hawaii and it was a blast.. would love to go to reminisce about the sea breeze and that salty island air!

  23. Kry September 15, 2014 at 10:45 am #

    I have always wanted to see them live but always miss them when they are in town! I know this concert would be an amazing time!

  24. B. Adam Campbell September 15, 2014 at 2:18 pm #

    This is the first time I’ve even heard of Katchafire playing in Portland. I’ve known about this group ever since their song “Seriously” grabbed by attention about 5 years ago. Such fine reggae, I wanna see these guys live!

  25. Melissa September 17, 2014 at 7:48 pm #

    I love Katchafire! Haven’t seen these guys in sooo long. They played at my university 5 years ago when I was living in New Zealand. It would be so awesome to see them live again and skank the night away :)

  26. Sandra Fritsche September 18, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    This would be a great date night event!

  27. David September 18, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    They come from the land of the long white cloud, only three hours from my home …. Music to sooth the soul and replace that sinking homesick feeling.

  37. JM September 22, 2014 at 12:08 am #

    I’d love to see these guys! It’s refreshing to hear a good, modern reggae band that isn’t all xylophones…

  38. Isa September 22, 2014 at 5:00 pm #

    I’ve been drawn to all things Maori since I was 13 watching Children of the Dog Star – a New Zealand kids sci-fi show. I’ve been loving reggae since even before my first Reggae on the River concert at 14. The last show at the Aladdin wasn’t rockin – need a new great show to get that taste out of my mouth. ;-)
