The Resolvers are South Florida’s biggest reggae band. Their humongous sound which consists of the 10-piece coins "big band reggae," is a mix between Roots Rock Reggae and New Orleans-style Funk and Soul. Their powerful energy and positive vibes have spread out far beyond the peninsula as the band keeps growing their fan base and uplifting audiences throughout the United States and internationally.
The Resolvers are a family affair. Siblings Sahara and Ojay Smith both take control over lead vocal role. Singing, songwriting, and performing is in their blood - their daddy is Jamaican Singer/Songwriter Ernie Smith. The chemistry is undeniable. Their show has been described as "explosive" and "must see", and the band has gained the reputation as a premier reggae act. The Resolvers have shared the stage with many internationally renowned artists such as The Wailers, Julian Marley, Kymani Marley, Inner Circle, English Beat, Yellowman, Matisyahoo, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Artikal Sound System, along many other world renowned acts in major International festivals such as Marley Fest, Jamaican Jazz & Blues Fest, SunFest, Aura Music Fest, Dub Fest and more.
