Birmingham musician is set to break back on to the music scene 25 years after missing out on stardom.
Rainbow Rocker, whose musical message is peace and harmony, was part of legendary Birmingham reggae group The Black Knights who transfixed concert goers in the late 1970,s and early 1980’s. The band missed out on a lucrative Battle of the Bands contract after refusing to give 70 per cent of their earnings to a record company in 1981. But Reggae aficionados everywhere recognise the importance the group had on Birmingham reggae and blazed the trail that UB40 took to worldwide stardom.
Rainbow Rocker, a founding member of the Black Knights, went on to worldwide acclaim touring with fellow Brummie Nigel Kennedy across the globe. The Rainbow Rocker, real name Kaleb, said: “2009 is the year for revivals and groups getting together so we thought we would raise the spirit of The Black Knights and instead of plodding along with our old songs give our music and act a modern twist.
“The world has changed since 1981 and Rainbow Rocker is set to show how this gifted group of musicians led by myself.”
