The Temple Rockers play incredibly varied and spiritually inspired Reggae connecting the Rasta and Jewish traditions through the miracle of music.  Producer and multi-instrumentalist David Solid Gould has been fascinated with the musical and cultural crossroads that he has dubbed “Temple Rockers Music”. It’s a blending of traditional Jewish melodies into the rhythmic and harmonic constructs of traditional Reggae, Rocksteady, and Ska music from Jamaica.

Throughout his four recordings released to date, David has involved an all-star group of singers and players, including Leonard  “Sparrow” Dillon of The Ethiopians, Keith “Sleepy” Coley and Gilmore “Smoker” Grant of The Silvertones,  the brilliant engineer Bill Laswell, prodigy Romanian saxophone player Yuri Yunakov, vocalist Craig Akira Fujita of Pressure Cooker and 10 Ft. GP,  drummer Tommy Benedetti of John Brown’s Body,  trumpeter Mark Berney formerly of the Skatalites, saxophone flutist Jared Sims, multi-instrumentalist Nate Silas Richardson of 10 Ft GP, and many others. The live group is 10-12 strong, bringing a classic Deep Roots Reggae sound to the stage.
