Pablo and the Hemphill 7 formed when a group of Fort Worth musicians banded together and started playing a new fusion of rock-reggae. Their first show was November 26, 2001, at the Red Star Lounge, and they have been rocking the Fort Worth live music scene ever since. The talented members are familiar faces in the Fort Worth scene.

Pablo always puts on an impressive live performance, and was voted Best Live Band for the Fort Worth Weekly Awards 09, 10, and 11. Frequent headliners at The Flying Saucer and Lola's 6th, count on Pablo to put on an energetic show that will be sure to move you onto the dance floor. The group has played festivals and clubs in many cities in the southern portion of the United States. Boasting a balance between skilled reggae covers and dynamic Pablo originals, their message of freedom, peace, and love rings true. If you haven't been to a Pablo show... well you are just not livin'!

Pablo's message is one of love, peace and of celebrating life together through music. The band simply wants to share their love of reggae with you.

Like water in the Texas love when there is no love to be found. Like the sun after the night you found the dance, the baptism, the kiss, the first time you heard His voice. Love has returned... and she is knocking at your door. Hurry burn the candle...unlock the heart...and open the gate. This is the moment of your life...its so fleating. I've missed you.....
