1814 are an 8-piece Reggae Band whose members live in the hills surrounding the beautiful Whangaroa Harbour and nearby town of Kerikeri, Northland.

Patu Colbert (guitar/vocals), formed the band with sons: Shaun (drums) and Jimmy (bass), in 2004. "We started out supporting various community events and festivals around Northland and now travel around the country performing our take on kiwi flavoured reggae," said Patu.

As the popularity of the band grew, so has the members which now include, Darren Katene (lead vocals); Katherine Te Haara – Atama (vocals); Reuben Heger (sax); Erana Jones (keys) and Maihi Pinker (vocals).

The name, 1814, was taken from the year the Gospel arrived at Oihi, in the Bay Of Islands. Missionary, Samuel Marsden, held the first sermon there on Christmas Day, 1814. This is the inspiration behind delivering a message of peace, love and unity to all people throughout the world.

Jah Rydem, the bands debut Album has been well received around the country. Patu describes the sound as having an up beat, funky, R&B, roots reggae feel to it. Song writing for the album was shared between band members with Darren writing lyrics for several of the songs.

"If you love skankin, you'll love the live shows, full of energy, up beat grooves, wicked sax and sweet soulful vocals," said Patu.

The band plays at various gig's and festivals throughout the year and has had the privilege of sharing the bill with some of the country’s top acts: Katchafire, House of Shem, 3 Houses Down, Cornerstone Roots, Unity Pacific, Ardijah, Ruia Aperahama, Whirimako Black, Che Fu, Moana and the Tribe, Spacifix and International Guitar player, Billy TK Jnr to name a few.

As front man for the legendary Exponents, Jordan luck has been on the pop scene in New Zealand for a couple of decades now.

He has clocked up 18 top 40 hits over the years with “Victoria” recently voted the 8th greatest song in New Zealand of all time with his track “Why does love do this to me” echoing around Rugby Stadiums still today.

The Jordan Luck Band is the band that Jordan assembled to carry on the torch of his pop writing gift with hand picked players from Dead Flowers, Blam Blam Blam, D4 and the old faithful drummer ex Exponents.

New Zealand Music Month kicks off on the first of May which also starts the 30 gig tour in 31 days for the Jordan Luck Band. Kaitaia’s outdoor entertainment venue – The Pavilion @ Twin Peaks is the first venue to get a taste of the Jordan Luck Band in association with Peak Entertainment.

While the Jordan Luck Band still carry the torch of Jordan’s illustrious pop past by playing those beloved Exponents hits, the band also has one eye firmly on the future. With a recent bout of intense song writing for the new album proving that Jordan’s creative muse is flourishing in its new environment. With a line up like the Jordan Luck Band, how could it be otherwise?
