DUBTONIC KRU
Coming from different parts of Jamaica, the members of Dubtonic Kru have been exposed to a variety of musical genres over the years.

The founding members of the Dubtonic Kru: Deleon “Jubba” White (drums) and Strickland Stone (bass) have contributed to the development of modern roots reggae with their unique sound and approach: Jubba’s mesmerizing reggae/jazz fusion drumming intertwined with Stone’s groovy, pulsating bass lines.

The Dubtonic Kru has gained nearly two decades of experience from touring and recording with Michael Rose, the Mighty Diamonds, Max Romeo, Burning Spear, U-Roy, Kamau, Richie Spice, Lutan Fyah and voicemail to name a few.

One of the milestones of the Dubtonic Kru’s career was the composition of the “I Swear” riddim, which has been used by Chuck Fenda and Richie Spice.

The Dubtonic Kru became a complete music machine with the addition of versatile guitarists and Omar “Jallanzo” Johnson and Craig McCalla and keyboardist/vocalist Luke Dixon.

Having extensively toured Europe, the Caribbean and the U.S., the Dubtonic Kru is dedicated to raising the bar for reggae and keeping the music interesting and spontaneous.

Yoshi's SF Announces "Globalistic"



New Weekly Live Music Series Brings the World to San Francisco



(San Francisco, CA) It's now easier to travel around the world than
ever before. In fact, you don't even have to leave The City to do it.
Beginning February 3rd, and continuing each Wednesday thereafter,
Yoshis SF's exciting new weekly live music series, "Globalistic,"
Fittingly brings the best in local world music to a world-class venue.
Afro-Brazilian, Reggae, Latin, and World Jazz-themed parties alternate
each week, making Yoshi's SF your one-stop virtual travel destination
for global groove.



Globalistic is a collaboration between Yoshis SF and some of the areas
best and most diverse promoters. Together, they have created a weekly
live series for world music aficionados and dancefloor enthusiasts
which brings the culture, flavor and rhythms of the world to one
central location.



The series gets off to a slammin' start as Bay Vibes presents Filipino
reggae experts (and SF favorites) Native Elements
(www.MySpace.com/NativeElements) on Feb. 3, bringing their blend of
rootsy one-drop riddims and high-energy, ska-flavored up-tempo party
tunes they call "Island Reggae."



In the weeks to come, Globalistic patrons will be treated to a
tantalizing rhythmic cuisine: exotic, ethnic-tinged live jazz
(presented by Beyond Jazz); carnival-ready Afro-Brazilian club jams
played by DJ Jeremiah and guest DJs, enhanced by live percussionists
and dancers (presented by Maisha Productions); and steamy, seductive
and fevered Latin musica (presented by Jimmy Vargas). On months with a
5th Wednesday, special collaborative efforts are planned, combining
some or all of the above genres for a truly distinctive evening that's
both a party and a geography lesson all in one!



Before the bands get rolling, some of the Bay Area's most acclaimed
DJs will get the party started. To help attendees get into the world
spirit (and entice them onto the dancefloor easier), globally-themed
drink specials include Cuba Libres and Caipirinhas and, because these
uncertain economic times can make even traveling to a nightclub to
hear live music difficult for some, the cover charge is an extremely
reasonable five dollars at the door. Even if you're maintaining a
low-profile "staycation" and keeping it local, how can you refuse?
Grab your passport--or, just your ID--and make your next trip around
the world as simple as hitting the Yoshis SF dancefloor Wednesday
nights!

"Globalistic"

9pm-2am (Bands go on at 10:30 pm)

$5 cover

Caipirinhas and Cuba Libres $6
