THE Majestic.... was the creation of Faada Ras in the early eighties. Faada had been DJing for Sound System Imperial I and decided to create a band to cultivate his singing prowess. Faada being an accomplished drummer set off looking for a bassist and found him in the form of Tony Alli, who had been playing bass for a local reggae band. The two would rehearse in Faada's flat, a few drummers later, a keyboard player, guitarists and percussionist and Majestic hit the road.
In the early years Majestic were building a reputation of being a powerful, very visual roots rock reggae band, playing their first show supporting one of the biggest psychedelic rock bands in Here & Now and other reggae artists such as Aswad, Misty in Roots and Mighty Diamonds to name a few. One of the bands many highlights of this era was the legendary Stonehenge Festival in 1983, sharing the stage with acts such as Hawkwind in front of over 60,000 festival dwellers.
