FRIDAY: Lee “Scratch” Perry –
Regarded with awe throughout the music world, Lee “Scratch” Perry holds status as one of the most enduring and original Reggae and Dub producers and artists of all time. From his early days in the 1960’s as a singer and engineer for Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One in Kingston, through his production of the seminal Wailers’ classics African Herbsman and Soul Revolution, Perry’s innovative style marks him as one of reggae’s original treasures. His on the edge creative genius remains evident in his own solo albums of the 1970’s through his steady stream of mind-boggling releases of the 1980’s.
One of reggae’s undisputed pioneers, Lee “the Upsetter” Perry has worked with almost everyone from the Heptones to the Skatalites to the Clash. Certainly one of his most notable contributions was the pairing of Bob Marley, to Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer with the Barnet Brothers (Carley and “Familyman” who had been the heart of the Perry’s group, the Upsetters) and thus the forming of the Bob Marley and the Wailers.
“Legend” Bob Marley Tribute –
LEGEND are seven great musicians and singers dedicated to the life and music of the late, great Bob Marley
This dynamic band, led by the charismatic Michael Anton Phillips (Cheesy) has a pedigree second to none, whose members have worked with such reggae greats as:
The Mighty Diamonds, Dennis Brown, Rankin Roger, The Beat, Burning Spear, Apache Indian, Johnny 2 Bad, Errol Dunkley, George and Desmond Decker, Musical Youth and many more
Legend’s two hour show covers the very best of Bob Marley’s timeless classics:
Is This Love, No Woman No Cry, Waiting in Vain, Exodus, I Shot The Sheriff, Jamming, Could You Be Loved. These are just a few of his million selling hits brought to you in this fantastic two hour tribute to the acknowledged master of reggae.
Troy Ellis and his Hail Jamaica Reggae band –
Troy Ellis, son of late, great Jamaican vocal legend Alton Ellis, has performed since earliest childhood in Trench Town, Jamaica and followed in his father’s footsteps to such prestigious venues as London’s Royal Albert Hall and Glastonbury Festival.
Since childhood Troy was inspired by his fathers music, Bob Marley and Toots, Bob Marley would give him dried food to take back to Trench a Town for the elderly . Troy formed Hail Jamaica Reggae Band a few years ago after Alton Ellis passed away, the name Hail Jamaica came from a Family Album, Roy released his album ‘ain’t that loving you ‘ as a tribute to his father.
