From New Mexico to Monterey to Seattle, the 10 time grammy nominated Third World Band continues to thrill audiences with hit songs such as “96 Degrees,” “Try Jah Love,” “Sense of Purpose,” “Committed,” and more. After 37 years of smash hits, sold-out tours and inspirational messages, the group is still excited about performing and recording music.

This weekend, the reggae ambassadors will perform at the Nectar Lounge in Seattle, the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver and Reggae Rising in California.
