Formed in 1998, The Black Seeds fuse dub, reggae and funk sounds to form a unique musical "party" sound.
They usually perform with ten members, with instruments including vocals, guitar, saxophone, trumpet, bass, drums, bongos, keyboard, woodblock and more.
The Black Seeds' lead singer Barnaby Weir is also the mastermind behind the side project Flash Harry, and the brainchild of Fly My Pretties, a collaboration of musicians from Wellington, New Zealand that only record their albums live.
Former band member Bret McKenzie is also a member of international award-winning comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, and side project Videokid, as well as playing Figwit the elf in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings.
The Black Seeds have released four albums, Keep On Pushing (2001) and On The Sun (2003), a remix album Pushed, Into the Dojo (2006) and Solid Ground (2008). - Wikipedia
