The Whispering Lion. Big photo in photo gallery

Whispering Lion are probably the best-known local reggae band in the Bay Area. They blend traditional reggae with good ol' American rock 'n roll, emphasis on the reggae. To be truthful, I was not tremendously impressed by their single You Ain't Cool. They opened with it, and spent the better part of 15 minutes on it. From there, things improved. The nine-piece band features tremendous backing vocals and good musicians. They have a charismatic lead singer who could still use a more interesting voice. They have some good songs, particularly Strange Love
