Next, the patrons were treated to the melodic voice of Pinchers. Dressed in his traditional spiffy attire, he performed his great hits, such [...]

See Hot Pics and Review – The 2014 Redemption Toronto Reggae Festival

By | August 20th, 2014|2014 Pics, Hot Pics|

This year’s Redemption Reggae Festival was a total success. A big congratulations to DBandit Promotions on this one, many had said it would be hard to top last year’s Festival, but this year moving it outdoors and bringing back Beres Hammond to headline on two nights was a winning strategy. Despite a stormy and rainy first day, my guess is that close to 5,000 people turned out at the Polson Pier Parking Lot to witness performances by Maxi Priest, Mr. [...]

Anyone who attended this year's JAMBANA One World Festival is likely to describe it as very satisfying from start to finish. This two-day outdoor Reggae music festival event had solid attendance, great food, and live performance by many premiere artists, DJs and MC's.  Jambana, a Jones & Jones Production, featured on day one (Sunday, August 3rd)The Mighty Sparrow, Marcia Griffiths, JC Lodge, Leroy Gibbon, Exco Levi, Jully Black, Gerry Thompson, Mountain Edge Roots & Culture Band and more.

Big up Diamond and Bill Cosby who repped the Stone Love sound admirably and destroyed the place musically at Luxy on Carnival Friday August 1st.  Jamaica's immortals literally had the over capacity crowd eating out of their hands, and from start to finish, delivered a series of exclusive dubs, anthems and reggae classics in a style that their predominantly female fans could relate to and enjoy.  There's not much else to say here, yes - it was just a dance, [...]

See Hot Pics and Review from Wanted – Rootsman vs Steppa Choice 07.26.14

By | August 9th, 2014|2014 Pics, Entertainment News, Hot Pics|

Congratulations to Rootsman, winners of the Wanted 2014 Soundclash @ SVG Lounge (07.26.14) featuring Rootsman vs Step A Choice. I will say that despite underdogs Step A Choice gave it their all, they were simply not in the same class as Rootsman on this night. I have often criticized Ranger (Rootsman MC) for his old skool, uptight style of clashing, where he’s lacked showmanship and a sense of humor while performing. The case was not the same on this night, [...]

See Hot Pics — Supercat and Kiprich at Sound Academy 07.18.14

By | July 22nd, 2014|2014 Pics, Entertainment News, Hot Pics|

The Redemption Past vs Present Supercat concert was very much anticipated, and in the end I'm glad I went. It seemed so long ago that I interviewed this very same artist is the basements of CKLN Radio, a time when this artist was more or less in his prime. The Supercat that we saw at Sound Academy was a much more laid back Supercat. A bit older now, and seemingly nothing to prove, Supercat, after taking the stage near 1:30 [...]

Enjoy these pics - Cocoa Tea in concert at Sound Academy on July 12th 2014 (I'm guessing that the show had about 750 people in attendance).  The Rub-a-Dub Concert event also featured Luciano as co-headliner.  Luciano, as expected, performed his usual great show hi-lighted by on-stage acrobatics and a golden voice that again sounded just as good live as it does in the recording studios. I chilled during Luciano's performance, and there are no pics of his live performance offered [...]
