Unity The Band blessed WORT with a performance on the first Access Hour of 2023. Unity The Band is an original roots reggae group based in Wisconsin. Their intense touring schedule of varied venues around the Midwest, East Coast, West Coast and Hawaii has honed an interactive outdoor stage show with positive party vibes and the knack for drawing club crowds into the irie groove.
Fronted with island-smooth energetic confidence by Kai “Pita” Katobalavu on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, the band’s talents include the smooth bass lines of Tim Perkins, Kennie Ayres laid-back guitar riffs and vocals, the cool intensity of Greg Pagel on keyboards and the innovative steady ease of Kelvin Ayres behind the drum set.
The band has won WAMI Awards & Artist Of The Year in 2008, 2010, 2014 2018 and 2020. Enjoy this encore performance live from the WORT Vinyl Library!
