Warehouse Live presents Katchafire, with Maoli and Bum Lucky. Wednesday, May 14, in The Studio.
From humble roots reggae beginnings in 1997 as a covers band with a name inspired by The Wailers’ debut album "Catch a Fire," to their current status as troubadours of Pacific spirit, Katchafire balance classic roots reggae with a r’n’b and funk rub.
Katchafire are no strangers to success, they are truly ‘World Famous in New Zealand’ with a double platinum debut album Revival, a platinum follow up Slow Burning, 2003’s highest selling single ‘Giddy Up’ and the critically acclaimed 2007 release Say What You're Thinking. They are also revered throughout the Pacific and are part of the staple diet in the Californian reggae scene.
Katchafire are a band that resonates throughout the nation, spreading the good will of reggae from rural foundations, its members residing throughout the Waikato, Raglan, Waihi, and Hamilton. There is a united spiritual connection among its seven members and the land they come from. Always a band that has stuck true to whanau roots, Katchafire embrace a truly universal sound with their latest offering. It is an omnibus of where, and who, Katchafire are.
