Thurs. Feb 7! Pato Banton & the Now Generation is back at Ashkenaz in Berkeley
from www.ashkenaz.com :

From Birmingham, England, singer and toaster Pato Banton is one of the modern giants of reggae. On this tour he is supported by his band of the past few years, the Now Generation. In a career that included a spiritual sabbatical, he returned to the stage with renewed commitment in 2005 and comes to Ashkenaz with a long set list that includes songs from the 1980s to 2011’s “New Day Dawning” CD. His distinctive vocal approach first caught public attention through his work with the English Beat, including his 1982 duet with Ranking Roger, “Pato and Roger a Go Talk.” He made a guest appearance on UB40’s 1985 album, “Baggariddim.” The next year he issued his own album produced by Mad Professor: “Mad Professor Captures Pato Banton.” He later had a hit with his version of the Police’s “Spirits in the Material World,” and collaborated with Steel Pulse’s Justin Hinds on “Wize Up!” in 1990.

Pato Banton says, “From ‘Never Give In’ to ‘Destination Paradise’ my main goal has always been to spread truth, beauty and goodness through reggae music. I have been blessed with the gift of Revelation, seen and been a part of many miracles, but nothing compares to the beautiful personalities I’ve met along the way. As I approach the final chapter of my musical journey on Planet Earth (Urantia), my only desire is to serve Divinity through humanity. And to all my brothers and sisters who are striving to achieve their goals in this age of materiality, my message is… Stay Positive and Never Give In!”

Sekkle Sataan Sekkle Sataan!

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..

Had not seen Pato in years and he played Sunday night at NWWRF and it was the best I have ever seen him. Really good show!
