Keeping a band together for more than a decade is no easy feat - especially if the band is full time. But for the past 15 years, the members of Baltimore reggae group Jah Works have made a living by grinding out gigs around the region and recording with other local groups. They have released 10 albums, which have sold close to 100,000 copies altogether, and performed more than 2,500 shows. Tomorrow, they'll play Rams Head Live. Along the way, they have become fixtures in the area.

When Jah Works broke into Baltimore's local music scene 10 years ago, the group was eager to pay tribute to Jamaican music legends - it didn't matter that the band wasn't ready for the spotlight. "We really should have stayed in the basement for the first couple of years, but we were so fired up about reggae, and we wanted to get out there," said guitarist Kevin Gorman. Just five or six songs were penned and practiced before the enterprising band - which was to open the Baltimore Books Festival before the threat of Hurricane Isabel led to tomorrow's events being canceled - started looking for gigs.
