The Mighty Diamonds

Easily one of the most enduring singing groups in Jamaica, The Mighty Diamonds are responsible for carving out a large section of the international music scene for reggae. Formed in 1969, their early hits, "Right Time," "I Need a Roof," "Have Mercy," "Shame & Pride," and "Africa" added to the substance of the reggae explosion lit by Bob Marley & the Wailers in the 1970s and have made them household names all over the world.

With over forty albums to their songwriting credit, Tabby, Bunny and Judge have found guidance, strength, and blessings in their Rastafarian faith. That guidance has seen them through three decades of hard work, international success and their fair share of difficulties. Through it all they have remained a solid unit creating, recording, and performing some of the best reggae songs which are destined to endure as classics of this genre.

Their international exposure has been firmly established by numerous and extensive tours covering many countries in Europe, Asia, North and South Americas where their culturally appealing stage performances have garnered many new fans. Appearances on the massive Reggae Sunsplash Festivals in Jamaica over the past eighteen years have brought many of these fans to the island to experience The Mighty Diamonds at their best on home turf.

Their most recent albums include Moments of Truth, Bruk Out, and Speak the Truth, and a new single "Gone Bad Now"--with an accompanying video. Having just completed a tour of Brazil they have added many more new fans to their international roster.

The year 1999 holds the promise of new releases and more tours for The Diamonds as reggae music rediscovers its cultural roots and puts the music back into reggae. Their new album Stand Up produced by ace producer Gussie Clark of Anchor Records was released mid October 1998.
