Archbishops of Blount Street
Archbishops of Blount Street
Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill's ONLY ska band, no matter what you heard.

Raleigh Public Record says,"this band is brass heavy and reminds me of a cross between Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes and the Pietasters. Bottom line – these guys are amazing." The Independent Weekly says, “Archbishops of Blount Street pay tribute to two-tone trailblazing.” The Durham Herald – Sun calls Archbishops of Blount Street "people with a drive for the music and party." The Chapel Hill... News says Archbishops of Blount Street "give the day a great reggae/ska flavor."

Archbishops of Blount Street play ska music unlike anyone from Roanoke Rapids to Wilmington, from Greenville to Greensboro. There are ten guys in the band! We have five gentlemen who play fiery horns, five who sing like nightingales, five that lay down a rhythm on top of which only a corpse could keep still and the whole is even greater than the sum of our parts.

Blount (pronounced, 'blunt') Street is a downtown thoroughfare running north and south through Raleigh, North Carolina in the US of A. We named the band Archbishops of Blount Street to give listeners an idea of our geographic origin. Ska, the mother of reggae music, was born in Jamaica and traveled over its half-century of waxing and waning popularity to the rest of the globe. But ska retains its Jamaican sense of rhythm, instrumentation and baudiness.

The rowdy REGATTA 69-Ship has set sails to conquer the world – THE AIM IS THE WAY! There’s no looking back anymore, it’s going forward, and nothing can stop them! Captain Brian Hill from North Carolina (USA) has settled an international crew around him (Germany, France, UK, USA) and the smell of the Caribbean, rum and pure adventure is in the air wherever the wind may carry them. On board they hold the most precious treasures a Ska band can own – the essences of amazing and original music: a box full of Ska, another one filled with Reggae, a case with Rock and a couple of powder kegs filled with Dub and Worldbeat - always being fired in the right moment. Of course there has to be a Lady on every pirate ship! Motha Nature gives you chills and goose bumps with her Rap-adventures – she gets to every core of the cruel reality with her bittersweet voice.
REGATTA 69 has been sailing the seas since the days when Ska was only spread across the Ska-scene-underground. Times were rough and tough, but the Captain and his crew would not be the determined and experienced pirates they are today, if they had not fought every battle and overcome any mutiny! On their minds – always the stage! They tour under every condition as long as the audience is dancing! USA, Europe or South Africa – every harbor gets occupied, every city taken! REGATTA 69 has played more than 1500 concerts over the last years!
THE AIM IS THE WAY is a journey through the Seven Seas of Ska and Reggae in a Regatta 69-own version. The album is as multifaceted as the band itself – every song has its own history, but together they form a unique adventure that stands out from the masses of today’s uniformed CDs. Their path leads them to the people in every single town, spreading their music into every corner of the world: This path is their goal – THE AIM IS THE WAY!
