The Aggrolites are more than a band they are a movement unto themselves. They carry a banner – one created with their own hands. This banner reads, “Dirty Reggae”, and represents their signature fusion of reggae, soul, grit and determination. For seven magnificent years, this dirty reggae bunch has rolled from city to city, across the pond and up main street USA. They rally the kids, the parents, the students, the cops, the bosses and the drifters. The people come, they relish in The Aggrolites, the dirty reggae and the joy that comes with it all. The liberating rhythms and catchy grooves demand a return trip.

The Aggrolites Rugged Road passes the test (with flying colored vinyl) in a new review from L.A. Record, a publication the Los Angeles Times calls L.A.’s “most formidable music magazine.” The limited edition red vinyl 12″ is nearly forever out of stock, don’t miss out on what Dan Collins calls “the finest modern piece of classic reggae I’ve heard in a quarter century.”
