"We need to have more Love in this world"!
Tony is a true Rastafarian. He expresses the passion and spirit of his belief dynamically in the performance of the traditional Roots Reggae music.



30 Lemar Ave


Roots are the origin from which something is derived. The source of it's strength such as the vital essence that maintain the reality of it's existence. Jah, The Lord and Creator of the universe has revealed the way for human development. "Weep not: behold, the Conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof." The words of truth so profound vibrates throughout the world though the heathens be adverse.

Reggae music was designed to express to the mass of humanity the unifying word of JAH in such a dynamic way that it inspires the hearts, minds, and souls of all who have an ear to listen.

Roots Vibration Reggae Band is dedicated towards the delivery the divine message of Jah boldly in the traditional Roots Rock Reggae style and fashion. Anthony Ezekiel Parnther, Lead vocalist and Rhythm Guitarist conceived the idea while growing up in Kingston, Jamaica then later came to Evanston, IL where he formed the band.
