Thanks

Geary motel is very good and clean plus walking distance to the venue, very safe neighborhood. My suggestion would be to book it soon as their rooms will go fast. People from SoCal, Oregon, seattle and as far away as canada coming for this one. I hope you able to make it!

You guys in North Cali hit the lottery every year. Hoping to see some you-tubage from the show. Congrats on bringing the very person at the top of my 'still haven't seen live list' to San Fran. Please see if there is a holdover possibility for Sierra Nevada.

I say... Some Never Plant yet want to Reap,
Be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm all alone..

With one of those fine bands of trick revivalist talents y'all have in Cali, I bet this was GREAT. Looking forward to reviews here....

I used to visit his music shop back in the day, and caught him @ The Legends Of Ska show(he really brought the house down with 'Solomon', as those adult expat Jamaican ladies pointed to the stage & sang the chorus!)...off-stage, a very regular guy. Wouldn't it be nice to see him in June....?

Massive sold out show. Derrick is an amazing performer that sounds just as he did at the time of recording his wonderful catalog of classic ska, rocksteady & reggae tunes plus soul ballads. here is video with poor audio that a random person recorded and posted on youtube.

More audio and video to come.

Big up yaself Ethan. Yes it was one memorable night that i personally will never forget in my life. Best New Years Ever. I have the official recording that was recorded directly from the house board and it sounds incredible. I cannot post any clips for Download until the other promoters and Derrick himself give us the go ahead, i will air a couple songs on this saturday's episode of Wake The Town radio. here are more youtube clips that someone in the audience recorded (still with poor audio) but you get the idea.
