John Brown's Body is an eight-person modern reggae group. The group has released six studio albums and toured across the U.S. for ten years. Originally more deep-rooted in the more traditional roots and foundation stylings of Reggae that helped to build their reputation as a serious act, their music (starting from 2003) began to take a direction toward a more modern, spaced-out sound with an occasional blend of the traditional. As such, their music has been described by the New York Daily News as "more Massive Attack than Marley", and "reverent and revolutionary at the same time", a nod to their futuristic take on reggae music and their ability to put a unique twist on this music.

The group has been called "America's best and most original reggae band", and continues to play almost exclusively original material. They have performed with a variety of groups, representing a wide-range of genres, over the years. This includes well known acts such as: Dave Matthews Band, Ozomatli, Broken Social Scene, and Jurassic 5. They have also headlined tours across the nation at the theater level.

They were awarded "Best World Music Act" at the 2001 Boston Music Awards, and "Best Live Act" the next year. In 2008 the band released "Amplify" which debuted #1 on Billboards Reggae Chart, #10 on CMJ's World Music Chard, at the end of 2008 Amplify made the iTunes best of 2008 list for reggae records.

As a result of the loss of bassist Scott Palmer from cancer, John Brown's Body underwent some dramatic line-up changes during the summer of 2006. Kevin Kinsella (Vocals and Rhythm Guitar) has formally left the band on good terms, along with horn-men Dan Delacruz and Chris "C-Money" Welter. John Brown's Body is now led by Elliot Martin on vocals, and Tommy Benedetti on drums. The group's current, official line up consists of:

Elliot Martin - Lead Vocals
Tommy Benedetti - Drums
Nate Edgar- Bass
Kofi Matthew Goodwin - Hammond B3, Clavinet, Synths
Mike Keenan - Guitar
Alex Toth - Trumpet
Annakalmia Traver - Sax
Scott Flynn C Trombone
