”If you don’t like the blues, you got a hole in your soul.”
Reggae, the soundtrack to Jamaican culture, is the musical climax of rhythm, art, and philosophy. More than a genre, reggae channels positivity and harmony through the artist.

Breezy and his band, The Coolers, have taken their passion for Roots Rock Reggae and infused the Chicago’s reggae scene with a perfect blend of originality and classic melodies that dwell into the roots and beauty of reggae.
