Biography

Hamilton, New Zealand

Katchafire is a band from Hamilton, New Zealand. They present an infusion of the roots reggae lineage with an undeniably Maori sound. They feature Logan Bell (Guitar, Vocals), Jamey Ferguson (Keyboards, Saxophone, Vocals), Haani Totorewa (Keyboards, Guitar, Vocals), Grenville Bell, (Lead Guitar) Ara Adams-Taratewa (Bass), Jordan Bell (Drums), and Leon Davey (Percussion, Harmonica, Vocals).

From humble beginnings ‘jamming’ in a garage, Katchafire is a melting pot of unique members, including two generations of one family and diverse musical perspectives – yet this blend is exquisitely aligned with the essence of reggae which can be an expression of social and political persuasions, hardship and pain, relaxation and reflection.

Dubbed New Zealand’s hardest working band by national media, Katchafire have now completed numerous national and seven international tours. The band has moved audiences around the globe with three tours in New Caledonia, one tour in each Fiji and Hawaii and 10 Australian tours.

Now Katchafire are poised to extend their unique reggae style, sound and success to the ‘big two’ – USA/Hawaii and UK/Europe. In July, Katchafire are begin their Hawaii/USA tour playing at Hawaii’s biggest summer concert event of the year, the 16th annual Birthday Bash at the Waikiki Shell in Honolulu then onto Kaua’i and Big Island.
