Popular Northern Kentucky Ska/Reggae/Rock crew Duppy a Jamba is no more. But fans shouldn’t be too disappointed. The band announced, due to a creative shift in new material, though membership is essentially the same, it has changed its name to The Secret Six.
Nominated for multiple Cincinnati Entertainment Awards, Duppy a Jamba amassed a strong local following in its four years of existence and were spreading their infectious Ska/Reggae mélange further with some occasional touring.
The Secret Six enters 2011 with a batch of new songs (and shows, coming soon), which will surface on a new album, currently being recorded with ex-Greenhornes/Soledad Brothers member (and current solo artist with a nationally released album on Alive Records) Brian Olive. The title given by the band on its Facebook page for the new release is Licking River Rocksteady.
