If you've got photos of them at SNWMF, please post them here or email them to me. I'm trying to put together a 'package' of memories for them to take back to Korea when they leave on Friday.

Windy City IS performing in SAN JOSE TONIGHT (Tuesday) night at 9:00pm



To me, the ultimate personification of ROOTS MUSIC - To The Bone


Janchi Reggae


Reflections from over on the other side


Maximum RASpect to the guy in the middle for having the vision.....

When the band bowed to each other, and then bowed to the crowd at the beginning of their performance, i got goosebumps. Great band, great set.

Love that reggae!

Daniel, I'll make this a priority and get some sent to you when I get to them this weekend.
We fly home Wednesday out of San Jose and are hoping we get to see Windy City one more time before we go home.
Please share the details of the Tuesday night show as soon as you can.

Thanks,

Scotti

As Kim Ban Jang explains from an interview a few years ago, the band took its name from the record label "Windy City" formed by Curtis Mayfield in 1968 "because he wanted to find new artists in the ghetto."

A beautiful thing!!!

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..

Got a chance to meet these guys just before Alpha Blondy. What a great group of peeps, extremely humble and friendly, and man did they jam! Wish I could get to San Jose tonight! Hopefully we will see Windy City again soon! Safe travels.

Here's one from last night in San Jose courtesy of Scotti-B:



FYI, 3 of the members of Windy City also perform in the band I and I Djangdan who have released an album entitled "Guidance." They had a few copies of that album while on the village stage but they were long gone before the weekend was over. But you can purchase Guidance at Ernie Bs.......

Yo Daniel....

Gotta a little something for you in your inbox my friend... I hope I got these out to you in time! Was wonderful to experience these guys in person we are lucky indeed to have such a wonderful festival in our backyard.

Big up!!

Daniel (or anyone else), if you have found them, can you please post any and all links to Windy City websites. Their Facebook page is essentially blank and any others I have found are seriously lacking. I'd like to check their bios, discography, etc and also find a place to puchase their CDs/downloads. I'd really love to help support this band to ensure they keep rocking for many years to come. Thx in advance.

p.s. - Daniel, I'd be very happy to hear that they made it home safe and would love to hear any feedback they give you.

Here is Windy City's Web Site

Here is Windy City's Facebook Page (show them some love)

Here is a link to the Spotlight on Windy City piece I put together

Here is a link to purchase Windy City's "Full Greeting" EP on iTunes

Here is a link to purchase the "Guidance" album by I and I Djangdan (that includes several Windy City Members and I recommend haile)

And here is a portion of the email I received yesterday:

Hi, everyone!
We got home safe today.
I feel like I didn't say thank enough to you all.
It was really wonderful experience for us to be a part of the 20th SNWMF.
It is really really rare opportunity to see all the great reggae musicians for us living in Korea.
Thank you so much for inviting us.
We got much inspirations and positive vibration from the festival and California.
It was one of the best festival in my life.
hope to see you all next year.

FYI, Beck Junghyun also plays accordion in a next band called Surisuri Mahasuri. Here's a video from Surisuri Mahasuri:





And here is their record label (Bibim's) sound cloud page where you'll find stuff from Windy City, Bibim Dub Trio and I and I Djangdan as well as a few others.....

Thank you all for exposing this band to me. Had never heard of them before this past week but am loving the footage from Nomo. Serious talent and vibes they bring.
