bonafide-reggae-group.jpgBonafide, the Las Vegas-based reggae band whose roots run deep in Jamaica, is currently in promotion mode as they present their latest single, Jamaican Girl, a song which pays homage to the irresistible island woman, of whom they note, "everytime you're around it's sunshine weather".

The group comprises brothers Jr. Rootz (vocals/drums); Bass Wayne (bass/vocals); Ricky Dread (keyboards/vocals) and Mikey Gits (Guitar), all of whom are longstanding ambassadors of good music generously mixed with philanthropy. In the past they have used proceeds from their CD sales to donate money for the welfare of displaced battered mothers, therefore it's only natural that Bonafide would record a song that uplifts women.

Jamaican Girl, which is on the group's B-RAZ Records imprint, will be released on all digital platforms this week and if the awesome response to the pre-release is anything to go by, then Bonafide has a bonafide hit on their hands.

"This is a positive, conscious message that we are sending to all the brothers out there to treat your woman with the respect and love that she truly deserves and at the same time to empower women of all ages to understand just how important it is to accept nothing but the best treatment from men," lead singer, Junior Rootz declared, adding that he was encouraged by the love being shown to the single by the music fraternity.

A highly sought after act, Bonafide has performed on several tours and festivals including Reggae on the River, Pure Aloha and, for five consecutive years, they have graced the stage of Jamaica's largest music festival, Reggae Sumfest, held annually in their hometown of Montego Bay. This has afforded them the opportunity to share stages with Usher, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige and John Legend. The band has toured the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

Bonafide is more than a band which plays awesome music, the members have a genuine interest in playing their part in making the world a better place. They donated the proceeds of their 2013 album, One Wish to the Las Vegas community - the people who lost their homes in the US mortgage crisis and they continue this work of helping the homeless and have also included Iraq war veterans and the native people of Peach Tree on their list. In Jamaica, Bonafide has donated computers and footballs to schools, they have repaired school bathrooms and the group currently has 50 iPads to distribute to schools in Jamaica when they arrive in July.

All this has been achieved through their Across The Bridge Foundation.
