Sly & Robbie & The Taxi Gang - Touring North America & Hawaii
Sly Dunbar (drums) and Robbie Shakespeare (bass), the arrangers,
producers, songwriters, session musicians and developers of raw talent,
are widely acknowledged as ‘the world’s greatest rhythm section’.
‘The Riddim Twins’ have been together for over 40 years….between them
they are estimated to have played on or produced over 200,000
recordings. Their list of collaborators is a veritable who’s who –
there’s every prominent Jamaican artist from Beenie Man to Sean Paul to
Peter Tosh, Don Carlos, Michael Rose, Junior Reid, Shaggy, Cherine
Anderson, Bitty Mclean, Black Uhuru, Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Ini
Kamoze; and they have played with and produced artists such as Ben
Harper, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, The Rolling Stones, Grace Jones, Paul
McCartney, Carlos Santana, Sinéad O’Connor, Britney Spears, Alicia Keys,
UB40’s Ali Campbell, Joe Cocker, No Doubt, the Fugees, Michael Franti
and countless others.

Sly and Robbie also have an extensive tour history on the world stage.
Their group the Taxi Gang includes a horn section and features an
ultimate lineup of top Jamaican recording musicians. Sly & Robbie
and the Taxi Gang have recently been top performers on the Tribute to
the Legends, the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Reggae in the
Desert and Reggae on the River. They tour North America, Canada, Europe,
Japan, Australia and China. When Sly and Robbie and the Taxi Gang
