|Band Info, Line Up and Band History|
|Since the early
beginnings back in 1989 Mother's Pride have played more than 400
concerts, including opening shows for Ska and Reggae legends like
Desmond Dekker, Laurel Aitken, Rico Rodriguez, The Specials, Bad
Manners, The Selecter and Macka B. Constant touring took the band
not only through Germany but also to France, Spain, Slovenia and
To understand what the band and their music is about, you've got to see Mother's Pride live. Those nine well-dressed gentlemen really know how to turn a concert into a party for everyone (which they'd like to join after the gig, of course). Their style is a mix of fast ska-beats, relaxed reggae tunes & some jazz and latin influences. It has been approved as "perfect dance music" by all kinds of audiences, from headbanging Death Metal fans to Dutch families on a camping site.
However, the "normal" audience at a Mother's Pride concert looks a little different. It's a colourful crowd of Skinheads, Rastas, Hippies & little punk girls and no one cares about colour of hair or colour of skin. Love music, hate racism!
