Rocksteady group, The Tennors, have reunited after a 35 year hiatus. Founding member George Murphy aka Clive Tennors and Ronnie Davis have reunited along with new member Henry “Sadiki” Buckley Jr., to record a new album and tour the US and European markets.
The group is already busy writing and recording new material for what will become their first new release in over 35 years. The Tennors made their mark on the Jamaican music scene in 1967 with the release of their first recording (and biggest hit in Jamaica for that year), “Pressure and Slide”, done and released under Sir Coxone’s “Downbeat” label. They went on to make some of the most well-known Rocksteady hits. “Ride Yu Donkey”, “Scrub Mi Khaki”, and “Cleopatra” were among some of the favorites. As a testament to the strength of the group’s music, “Ride Yu Donkey” was a featured track in the 2005 French-American film, “Broken Flowers” which starred Bill Murray and Sharon Stone.
