Mostly Marley performs with passion while always remaining true to the spirit of Reggae. Mostly Marley is a band that takes you on a musical odyssey- with good times to be had by all.
Mostly Marley regularly performs around BC, most notably at The Blue Grotto in Kamloops where a faithful following always comes out, and The Rusty Gull in North Vancouver where the band has played for 5 years strong.
