ABOUT
Unity The Band is an award-winning original roots reggae group based in Wisconsin. Their intense touring schedule of varied venues around the Midwest has honed an interactive outdoor stage show with positive party vibes and the knack for drawing club crowds into the irie groove.

They treat fans to old Roots, Rock, Reggae favorites along with original music blending influences of roots, rock, blues, funk, and reggae into their own unique sound. Fronted with island-smooth energetic confidence by Kai "Pita" Katobalavu on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, the band's talents include the smooth bass lines of Tim Perkins, Anthony Robert's laid-back guitar riffs and vocals, the cool intensity of Franz Zermuehlen on keyboards, and the innovative steady ease of Kelvin Ayres behind the drum set.

Unity's fan base has grown extensively regionally and globally with the release of five albums: Liberation, In The Beginning, Revival, Oceania, and Sunset 7, a collection of diverse original songs written by Katobalavu, centered on his roots as a native-born Fijian. The albums' release and the unique cultural story of a Fijian making music in the Midwest have gained the band extensive media attention in the US, Europe, Fiji, Australia, Hawaii, and New Zealand, as well as radio play for the new music.
