With Caribbean rhythms and endless soul, New Zealanders Katchafire brought their brand of reggae to Brooklyn Bowl. Lead vocalist Logan Bell ignited the set with “On the Road Again” and sparked the energy of a mellow crowd who grooved and swayed along with the band. Newest single, “Down with You” featured Jamey Ferguson at the lead and Logan and Jordan Bell on backup vocals. Along with the smooth, yet timely percussion rhythms and calypso horns, it made the audience feel the passion from Ferguson’s lyrics. The highlight of the night was when opening act Iba Mahr joined the band onstage to help cover the Bob Marley classic “Three Little Birds.” The collection of instruments and conviction of Bell’s voice made the cover shine and capped off a great and love-filled set.★★★✩✩
