With their roots steeped deep in the tradition of the classic 70′s period of conscious reggae, the High Hopes Band (HHB) is considered one of New England’s premiere reggae bands. High Hopes combines influences of roots reggae, dub and R&B into its own style and sound.
High Hopes Band has shared the stage with Ziggy Marley, Maxi Priest, Midnite, Luciano, and Morgan Heritage. At every High Hopes Band performance, audiences are often treated to a wide range of music styles, thanks in part to the band’s influential bassist, Julie Feola, they also keep it grounded in the foundation of their heavy roots sound.

When Easy Star Records released Dub Side Of The Moon a decade ago, they never expected the impact that the complete reggae version of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon would have on the world.

Congratulations on joining Iration! How did that collaboration come about?
Thanks! I've been going to Iration shows for years, and slowly got to know the guys and realize how down-to-earth they are, and how easy it is to get along with them.
