The Fundamentals

Since forming in 2008, The Fundamentals have worked tirelessly to bring their unique sound and exciting live show to audiences everywhere. Their music recalls the rhythms of 1960s Jamaica, with its roots firmly planted in the traditions of early ska, rocksteady, and reggae. The seven-piece ensemble combines these influences with an abiding love of blues and soul, and an attitude that is pure rock’n’roll, making sure every audience member and listener has an unforgettable time.

Known for their energetic and engaging live performances, The Fundamentals have shared the stage with many notable international acts, including The Aggrolites, Catch 22, Mustard Plug, and The New York Ska Jazz Ensemble; they have also played with top Canadian acts The Planet Smashers, The Creepshow, The Afterbeat and Subb. They have been featured at several festivals, including POP Montreal, the Victoria Ska Festival and the Montreal Ska Festival, and headlined the Ottawa Ska Festival and Owl’s Head Festival in Mansonville, QC. Their reputation as masters of versatility and improvisation led to them performing as the backing band for New York ska legend King Django, a role they reprised for Jamaican-Canadian reggae star Vernon Maytone.

Summer 2011 saw The Fundamentals head out on their first national tour to promote their self-produced, independent release, Leaving Me Behind. While opening shows for Slacker’s front man Vic Ruggiero and Australia’s The Resignators, they captivated audiences and expanded their following from coast to coast.

All this has stirred up strong demand for a full-length album. Currently in pre-production with a scheduled release of spring 2012, The Fundamentals are touring their record across Canada, the United States, the UK and Europe. As their mounting momentum carries them into the new year, the Fundamentals’ powerful stage presence and high-stepping rhythms will leave your legs sore, your head humming and your ears satisfied.
