Mikal Rose with Sly and Robbie
September 16, 2013 09:15PM
Mikal Rose is playing with the international Sly and Robbie this Friday at Yoshi's in SF. I know MR usually always plays the same set (shine eye gal, bull in the pen, general penetentury, etc) but the last time I saw him play with Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare was at ROTR 1998. Sly and Robbie are the best band members that Black Uhuru has ever had. The new band with Andrew Bees and Ducky Simpson is decent, not great. I am really looking forward to this show.

Is anyone else going to this show. Let's get a drink before and hang out.

I'm a big fan, sad to say I won't be around to see it. That's my push for SNWMF 2014. I know he's not high on most boardies list, but he is a great artis & performer. I saw his show out in Truckee the weekend after Snwmf. 2013 and he was on point. He had the crowd on their feet. For me he's a great festival performer. My family has grown the last few years and its almost impossible for me to catch shows now. Festivals have been the only way for me to take the family and enjoy some great music. I appreciate the music and the shows more and more when I go. If I have seen artist a hand full of times or a couple of dozen times I happy to catch any shows now. Forward M. Rose and Sly and Ronnie........p.s. Mr. ROSE has been a big inspiration to me that I have a 4 week old baby girl I named Mykala because I hold his music close to my heart. BIG UP REGGAE MASSIVE.

Last nights show was wack. That venue sucks big time. Worst venue in SF. 40 a ticket. One ticket person to get in, one bar tender for 300 people. He only played for 60 min. No encore. Didn't play past 11.45 on a Friday.

The sound was nice, that was it.

I'm loosing respect for these SF reggae shows by the day.

Short show, with a bit too much Fenton and the Reggaae Angels for my taste, but wicked still. Mr. Rose never sounded better, IMO. His comfort level and onstage link with Sly and Robbie was obvious. Wish they did an encore, though.

Noooooooooo, you're kidding right, you mean to tell me Fenton played a long long long set? confused smiley

I could never understand why Fenton doesn't figure it out himself that playing those incredibly long and excruciating sets drives most people mad.

Has anyone in the concert industry ever told him, 'Fenton, stop, one hour of your music is enough. Actually, 45 minutes is enough.'

Why do I get the feeling he wouldn't listen - even if someone did give him this valuable advice.

No real disrespect to the man Fenton. He works hard, and makes a lot of live reggae happen. But when you show up for M. Rose with Sly and Robbie, you want every minute to count. And with an early end, sans encore, I felt a bit short-changed....

At Moe's it was Militia of Love who opened. How was that show? Someone here must've gone, it was completely sold out. Got a chance to talk to Sly a bit before the show, he was in a good mood.

We were blessed with an amazing show in SLO Town last Thursday night! Was bummed when I knew Fenton was going to perform, especially since the venue typically has an 11PM curfew. Luckily, he kept it to only a few tunes and the venue waived the curfew that night and let Mykal Rose play til 1AM. Got to visit with Sly before sound check and what an honor, wow! They brought it that night and it will go down as one of the best shows in SLO Town's history!!!

The support act, Boombala, is an up and coming band from SLO and it was a pleasure to finally catch the last few tunes of their set. Most definitely a band to look forward to in the future.

Big respect to Sly and Robbie, from a conco had with Sly it seems like they only come out for "TRUE" encores. Not pre planned canned anthems.

Yeah, that was a legit encore rally, they could have come out for 1 more, madd sell out. Pretty cool show, lucky to get a ticket, I didnt think I was going to get in. There was some feedback off the mic in the begining and they got it dialed in and sounding pretty sweet. All good in the paradise city with those heavy hitters, give thanks.
