We, the Duppy Conquerors, are dedicated to the spirit of Bob Marley’s Music.

We have been making our name as the premier tribute to Bob Marley in New England. We aren’t a “tribute band” trying to look and dress like Bob Marley and The Wailers; we are musicians who respect their sound and spirit. With nearly 3/4 of their repertoire under our belts, Duppy Conquerors are the quintessential testimonial to Bob Marley.

Named after Bob Marley’s hit song entitled “Duppy Conqueror,” the term Duppy Conqueror means “killer of bad spirits,” and that we are! The Duppy Conquerors will, “Lively up yourself,” as you’re jammin’ to Bob Marley’s music! “(The) Duppy Conquerors are the best Bob Marley tribute I have ever heard!” – Shelley Neill, organizer of the legendary Amandla Festival at Harvard Stadium where Bob Marley and The Wailer’s headlined.

(By the way….The Wailers first performance in the United States was in 1973 at Paul's Mall & the Jazz Workshop in Boston!

Collectively, Duppy Conquerors have performed or shared the stage with: The Wailers (reggae band), Ziggy Marley, The Skatalites Band, Jackie Mittoo, U-Roy, Black Uhuru Official, Mikey Dread, Sugar Minott, Sly & Robbie, Official Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Emmanuel Brown, Yellowman, Eek-a-Mouse, Steel Pulse, Toots and the Maytals, Roland Alphonso, Leroy «Horsemouth» Wallace, Lloyd Knibb, Laurel Aitken, Lord Tanamo, Gil Scott-Heron, Babatunde Olatunji, Richie Havens, and many more!

Duppy Conquerors had the pleasure of performing Bob Marley’s entire album “Kaya,” originally released on the Island Records (Tuff Gong International) on its re-release date at Redstar Union in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We shared the night with our friend, music journalist Steve Morse, who wrote the liner notes for the re-release. Steve consulted with Duppy Conquerors sax player, Jeff Robinson, in preparation and quoted Jeff in the liner notes. At Redstar Union, Steve reminisced fondly about his interviews with Bob Marley. The Duppy Conquerors performed the entire “Kaya” album; portions of the show were streamed live on BobMarley.com and the Boston Globe wrote a preview of the performance. What a night!

“Bob Marley was about Spirit. His music touched many souls. It’s great to see the Duppy Conquerors capture that spirit and make it live anew. They play his songs with a beautiful conviction and love.” Steve Morse, Boston Globe Correspondent

“The crowd, equally as diverse as the band itself, enjoyed the music, dancing until the early hours of the morning and letting go of themselves to the immortal melodies of Bob Marley. After the spot-on rendition of Bob Marley’ s (album) Exodus, the band played a mixed set including hits like “ Is this Love,” “ Could you be Loved,” and “ No Woman No Cry.” Mixed in with the hits, the band played rarities like “Hammer” an electrifying rendition of “Simmer Down” that brought the entire audience to their feet, and the classic first recording of Bob Marley’ s repertoire “One Cup of Coffee.”” – Jeremy F. van der Heiden – The Somerville New
