Hot Pics – Luciano @ Opera House 11.02.13

By | November 7th, 2013|2013 Pics, Hot Pics|

Here are the pics that I took at IREMEMBER featuring Luciano 'Messenjah' and Jesse Royal at the Opera House last Saturday.  I missed Jesse's performance due to my radio show on 100.7 CHIN-FM (10 PM - Midnight), but, managed to get there in time to snap some photos of Luci.  I took some pictures from the balcony upstairs as well as front of house. I must say, Luciano really gives it his all when performing.  I'm sure, given the choice, [...]

World Clash R.E.S.E.T @ Amazura 10.12.13 – Review, Pics & Video

By | October 16th, 2013|2013 Pics, Hot Pics|

Going to World Clash Reset at Amazura in Queens last Saturday was a decision that was made a long time ago.  Partnering the trip with me, and in charge of most of the picture taking, was my sistren Lisa West.  Big her up – if it wasn’t for her enthusiasm and her forcing me to buy my plane tickets way in advance, I probably wouldn’t have ended up going.  After my last few experiences of driving to New York, I [...]

By | August 21st, 2013|2013 Pics, Hot Pics|

Enjoy these pics from Redemption Reggae Festival (Day Two) @ the Polson Pier Entertainment Complex 08.18.13 featuring Morgan Heritage and Beres Hammond!  This was the only day that I could attend, there were no disappointments.  I arrived at 5 PM and the venue was already packed, people continued to trickle in.  Doors opened at 2 PM so I missed all of the opening acts.  Even though I had my ticket for this event, I had no media pass - I [...]

Hot Pics – Jambana @ Markham Fair Grounds 08.05.13

By | August 7th, 2013|2013 Pics, Hot Pics|

I had a good time at Jambana!  Good thing I had to arrive early as I heard way too many stories about how long it took to get in and out of Markham Fair Grounds.  That aside, the event was a solid success in my opinion and the numbers were there (attendance wise) for Jones & Jones Productions to secure the grounds for next year's event.  It was just great to see such a massive congregation of people, united not [...]

Hot Pics – Baby Cham @ Famous Nightclub 08.03.13

I enjoyed 'Caribana Aftermath' with Cham!  Once again, it was Cham who proved to be the star of the evening - he is still one of the best live artistes in Dancehall today.  Cham gave a first-class performance to the 600+ fans inside Famous Nightclub in Mississauga.  He performed for an hour or so and touched all of his 'classic' chunes - the audience sang along with him which brought them all together, just like 'one big family'!  Big Up [...]
