This was during the later days of Ska Music, Rocksteady Music and Mento.

The first Reggae Band which readily comes to mind is the world-renown Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Although  Dancehall music was originated in the late 1970s Dancehall Band or Bands was very much unheard of.

In the early 1990s dancehall music had its first official group called "T.O.K. the group consist of four Campion College boys who came together in the early 1990s to form a group that would gain much international acclaim they were  Xavier “Flexx” Davidson, Craig “Craigy T” Thompson, Alistaire “Alex” McCalla and Roshaun “Bay-C” Clarke.

They were followed by what some would term Dancehall Bands, RDX and Voicemail.

RDX members are deejay Renegade (Carlton Williams) from the community of Waterhouse and Singer Delomar (Andre Bedward) who hails from the community of Kencot both in Kingston, Jamaica.

Both artiste first started out in the dancehall reggae business in 2003 as members of a group called "Xsytment".

In 2006 they both went on to formed their own group, they instantly made an impact in the dancehall music both local and international.

Voicemail Recognized for their intro trademarks, "You've got mail - VoiceMail" and "Heyeee"; Voice Mail was founded in 2003, and had a chart hit in Jamaica with "Weddy Time".

They made a succession of videos for songs such as "Gal Hunt", "Weddy Time", "She Want It Harder", "Ready To Party" and "Wacky Dip", in addition to features on the Strip Tease riddim and Klymaxx riddim medley videos.

Another group which did pop up on the dancehall scene is the Merital Family which originated from a small community in Montego Bay, Jamaica. They were apart of the Vybz Kartel led Portmore Empire. They are well known for their collaboration with Kartel titled "My Money Ha Ha" released in 2010.

Since 2003 we have not seen the emergence of any more major Dancehall Bands or groups to make it big globally.
