Welcome to The Fab 5 band website
5, formed in 1970, is Jamaica's pre eminent popular band,
whether measured by record sales at home, hits on the charts,
frequency of engagements or major awards won over the years. Their first recording, "Come Back And Stay", was number one
in Jamaica, and in their first year on the road, and for the
following two years, they won the only available awards, the
Swing Awards for best band of 1971-72, 1972-73 and 1973-74. They
also took the El Suzie Award as Joint Top Road and Dance Band
for 1975-76 and the RJR Listeners' Award for Best Band in 1980.
They backed Johnny Nash on all the reggae cuts comprising most
of his platinum album "I Can See Clearly Now". Two singles from
that album, "Guava Jelly" and "Stir It Up", established Bob
Marley as a major songwriter on the international scene.
