The turnout in Ukiah was meager--fewer than 25 paid and many didn't shell out the $15 advertised price. The mix was absolutely awful throughout. Hope Brooktrails is a marked improvement.

Carrie, you've been going to reggae concerts a long time, you should know by now that rule #1 re: attending reggae shows is: "CALL BEFORE YOU HAUL"
That being said, I double checked tonight and called Moe's and told the bartender about last night in Willits, & she told me "no, they're here." So we shall see. Does the OP have any word on what happened last night?

Sad thing is I did call before I hauled the hour to the show, they told me they were there at the venue setting up, I was flat out lied to.

The people putting on the Willits/Brooktrails event knew Friday morning that Keith Porter would not be making the drive up from the Bay area. Apparently, they didn't want to make it public because they had cobbled together a DJ-based show and hoped to snare at least some of the locals.

The ostensible reason for Keith and the band being no-shows is that they didn't have a bass player, but that's almost certainly untrue. It was more likely disinterest due to the poor showing in Ukiah the previous Saturday.

I called that evening and was told the original artists were performing by the employee of Brooktrails Lodge. After reading the posts here, I decided not to trust it, and am glad I didn't.

The original artists? That is so lame. Lloyd Ricketts is dead. So is David Isaacs if one wants to embellish "original." Ronnie Davis and Keith are usually at odds. The best one could have hoped for was Keith and his kids, Kada and Darien, but in Ukiah it was Keith and minimal backing vocals by band members.

The Brooktrails Lodge hasn't heard the last of Friday's disaster. Neither has "Rootikal" and "Triniti."

not sure what you mean about "Rootikal/Trinit" (same person) not hearing of Friday's disaster????? Triniti performed at the show and was very much aware of the disaster
Re: The Ital NorCal Summer Tour!Coming Your Way!!

What I meant by original artists is the band that was billed originally, not the substitutes. I have to make my money stretch during the summer months, and if I am going to pay for a ticket for the Itals, I would hope I would be seeing them.

Peace

The flyers above and those distributed in this area (Willits) show a photo that includes Keith Porter, Ronnie Davis and David Isaacs. David died several years ago. Ronnie Davis rarely performs as an Ital anymore. He did briefly when original member Lloyd Ricketts recently was allowed to travel to the U. S. despite having a drug conviction, but Ricketts died shortly thereafter.

"Triniti" is the stage name of a singer named Baracka and he had a lot to do with there being a show of sorts at the Brooktrails Lodge Friday, despite the absence of Keith Porter and his backing band. Information from Baracka and others involved in this event and the entire tour was hard to come by Friday, and the staff at Brooktrails Lodge was clueless regarding The Itals. The Lodge just makes space available to promoters. All the staff knew early on was that people were there setting up a dj system and a table to collect admissions. "Rootikal" and "Triniti" are supposedly different people, though I have my doubts.

If Keith had showed up, my guess is that he would have performed before 40 people, at best.

The artist calling himself "triniti" actually told me that "Rootikal" was his snwmf board name.
Re: The Ital NorCal Summer Tour!Coming Your Way!!
July 07, 2013 07:06PM
That's funny because I always presumed that Rootikal = Amha Baraka.....
