On Thursday June 30th, the Timeless Classics Canada Day Weekend Festival featured Freddie McGregor, Sanchez, Marcia Griffith, and Pinchers live in concert at Sound Academy.  This Timeless Classics presentation lived up to all expectations. In terms of criticizing this concert, not much can be criticized; everything that was promised was delivered in classic fashion. I must start by bigging up our Canadian artists Steele and The Human Rights, both of whom were show openers that I did not arrive early enough [...]

I truly enjoyed this year’s Montreal Reggae Festival, and I must big up all of the organizers, artists & performers, dj’s, vendors, and fans who attended.  MRF 2016 (Edition 13) took place Friday August 26th, Saturday August 27th, and Sunday August 28th outdoors at Montreal’s Old Port.  The complete list of performers may be too much to mention, but some stars of this year’s festival included artists the likes of Cocoa Tea, Sanchez, Barrington Levy, Mavado, Spragga Benz, Vershon, Romain [...]

There’s no doubt about it – Earlan Bartley aka Alkaline, has a solid and rapidly growing fan base in Toronto.  Love him or hate him, this 23 year old Jamaican Dancehall superstar, trademarked by his tattooed eyes, sex-symbol status and distinctive sing-jay style, is the artiste currently running Dancehall in 2016.  Now, on a beautiful Saturday night inside Sound Academy (Toronto), about 1,800 of his loyal fans would pack up Sound Academy to witness a fast paced and actionable 35-minute [...]

My bad – previous obligations prevented me (and Lisa West) from arriving early enough to cover all of the S.O.R (Summer of Reggae) Daytime Music Festival event held outdoors at Toronto’s  Wild Water Kingdom.  A late arrival meant that we only saw the tail end of Junior Reid’s show, followed by Cocoa Tea then finally Elephant Man; we arrived too late to see performances by Demarco, Wayne Wonder, Mad Cobra, Kranium, as well as a Renaissance Disco, Stone Love Sound, [...]

The Opera House had a healthy turnout last Saturday April 9th, as the one and only Luciano backed by the Riddim Up Band (alongside Fujative – who I did not see due to my late arrival), were headliners for a fundraising concert purposed to support ‘programs for Dr. Roz’s Healing Place – a women’s and children’s shelter’.  The show was a Pucca.ca Promotion, also featuring DJ African Star, and was hosted by Julian King (CanadianReggaeWorld.com).  Here is the info the [...]
