Funny thing about the Regency is they have a crazy sound curfew. I bought tix for Common and was gonna take my queen, we showed up at 10:40, and the show was done. Done.

I couldn't believe it but they told me they had a strict sound curfew and have to follow. I'm so used to reggae shows where they say doors at 10, and show usually doesn't start until 12. I guess when they get a big name like Common, and others, they start at a specified time and end at a specified time.

Done deal.

When one advertises a show on the phorum here, one always gets the boardies to weight in on 1) the artist and 2) the venue. I've done it and will continue to do it also. Telling people to shut up only creates adversity, and won't bring more people to your venue. If you don't like strikkly's comment, maybe you should shut your HOLE also. The advice you gave seems as well directed at you. And stop using all caps, you're like a new yorker with your hand on the horn.

Love that reggae!

I never had a problem with Karibbean City. It's kinda dumpy inside, but brings the type of stageshows you wouldn't see otherwise in the Bay Area, and now it has the ability to stay after-hours. They have a full bar and security was never a problem.

Salaam Alaikum to you to Ali.....really holding htat Royal banner high eh?
Well the illustrious Ali whom no doubt you were named after said among other things
"Vanity comes from tyranny. Tyranny comes from arrogance. Arrogance comes from conceit. The Satan is a present enemy who promises falsely."
now he has said nothing about using all caps.....but let us extrapolate......something to the effect of speak calmly and answer inquisitors with kindness and magnanimity.
If you know any sayings of the Illustrious Imam, please share and I promise to ponder them.
Peace be with you.

Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
October 27, 2013 07:25PM
Such real observations. Can't make a promoter happy , but listening to customer complaints should elicit a better response than STFU.
Being humble is a trait I have never seen in a club promoter so , no surprises there.

a few more sayings of the original Ali that I came across,

not the rudebwoy Ali, but perhaps he should read them

And.....

"Self-conceit poisons the mind."

seems entirely applicable

NKC is a Caribbean owed venue supported by the Caribbean community . And will continue to prosper. My message is simple if u don't like it don't come - plain and simple. Real west Indian people know wassup. Stop w all the bad mind foolishness . NKC don't need it
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
October 29, 2013 06:09PM
"don't like it, don't come" - NKC don't need your business, the place sucks just fine without it.

I still haven't read any specific complaint about the venue, just general ranting. You all sound like haters.
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 02, 2013 10:55PM
Personally, I am not fond of the location, or the over zealous security, or the sound, or the vibes in general. NKC is too much of a club scene for me at this stage of my life. When I was young and flashy or looking to meet some women for the night NKC woulda been a great spot. These days I prefer more of a music focus and less of the bar/club scene.
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 03, 2013 05:53AM
1) they turned a warehouse into a music venue. It is not meant to be a music venue.
2) the security is rude
3) it's in Oakland.
4) The parking is sketchy
5) the back smoking area is small and cramped
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 03, 2013 12:06PM
I stopped reading at #3. Most nightclubs are former warehouses, and it's been around since at least the early 1990s (back when it was Club Caribe). The security has to be tight given there was a shooting at the "Old" Karibbean City, so that is to be expected. But you're entitled to your opinion still.
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 03, 2013 03:24PM
Tight security is one thing. Just being a dick to every person you interact with is another....but I hear you Chimino, they are just doing their job. It does seem to me that NKC attracts more of the thug element than any other venue that promotes reggae music, put simply NKC is the ONLY venue that I feel the need to be on guard and look over my sholder when I am there or when I am leaving. These days I would much rather stay home, than go out and be on edge or wade through the sea of the drunken aggressive vibe that comes along with that venue.
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 03, 2013 04:15PM
I'm not much of a club person in general - but the one time I went to NKC a couple years ago I didn't think it was all that bad overall. The sound was on par with other bay area venues, and I don't recall the security being that rough.

Reggae is a ghetto peoples/sufferer music. Oakland diversity is the perfect place to hold the vibes. The idea that reggae should be in some safe uptown place is somewhat contradictory to the foundation of the music. Security is rough because it is their reality. Sure there are plenty of uptown artists and events but that is the exception and not the norm worldwide. Mainstream venues DO NOT support reggae, they fight it, have abandoned it and frankly just don't get it. If you dont want to go to venue that has those characteristics then you only get to see "college town reggae" or "weed county reggae".

I personally dont care for late shows, there are plenty of west indian people agree but that is our life choice. They seem to always pack the late shows so they really DONT need the complainers. Looks like they are good.

My only complaint is the sound. All my experiences the bartender was trying to man the sound board and it resulted in a big mess. In the bay area we are blessed with some of the best sound engineers in the world and resources to give great sound experience and that is something that reggae prides its self on, usually. If I pay $40 to see a rock show I will probably have crystal perfect sound, I very respectively ask the same from a reggae venue.

THANK YOU! I am glad you see that side of it! As far as sound, I agree 100%! In the past we have had problems. We recognize that, and have made a continuous effort to improve it! At the Gyptian shpw this past weekend it sounded amazing because our favorite sound engineer ran the show. We plan to only keep improving, and we appreciate your feedback smiling smiley

I don't understand why you guys have to be so rude. I understand if you are not a fan of the venue, instead of bringing hate why don't you give feedback to help us improve NKC???? What people don't understand is we invest a lot of money and a ton of TIME (no sleep) into these shows to keep reggae/dancehall alive in the bay. We have even tried to get the music in the hands of mainstream dj's to help keep the artist moving up. Our vision isn't about the money, it is about keeping the music alive. We do this for the fans. I cannot even tell you how many times we have lost money. So when reading these MEAN comments, it hurts us!!!! We are only trying to do something good for the bay. Ali's comments are only under frustration because it is hard to understand why people continue to say so many hateful things when we are only trying to give something positive to the people of Oakland!

Instead of being so rude, it would be nice to get constructive criticism

I thought reggae was about unity, not hate??? Am I wrong????
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC

Big Up Alicia and NKC for all the entertainment and good times in downtown Oakland. Keep rockin it, let the haters stay at home and hate.
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 04, 2013 10:55PM
Much love goes out to NKC and all you do. Alicia and Rich are some of the most humble people in the game. NKC takes risks other clubs wouldn't even touch. And as people said before it really feels a void for young urban Caribbean folks that felt disconnected from other Bay Area venues that catered to the college stoner types. I have always had a good time here and feel that security is the most on point in the Bay. They might seem rude to some, but to me they are just focused on their job and are there for the safety of the paying patrons. Give NKC another try .... you might be surprised about how far it has come in the last few months and only getting better.
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 04, 2013 11:55PM
The only issue I remember NKC ever really having was the sound, my ears felt like they were bleeding after the Serani show a few years ago. I have Been a few times since then and I have heard from others the sound is much better than it was. Im not a huge fan of shows starting @ 2am just because im born and raised on the West Coast and I get tired and drunk and me feet get sore to Ras....lol. Besides that the only issue is that some people are intimidated by a large Caribbean crowd and if that's not your thing then stop the hate and come with some constructive criticism because the last time I checked there isn't a lot of venues holding shows with Mavado, Elephant Man, Gyptian, Sizzla. Keep do the thing NKC because nobody else is and in 5 years I wouldn't be surprised if NKC is one of the ONLY spots in the East Bay that hosts Reggae events, so make them know what you don't like about the venue and it sounds like the promoters and owners are atleast trying to make the venue better. Right? Same team ova yahso--------Reggae should be united and not so divided

Show was announced today by NKC.
December 19 is official in Oakland
December 17 in Chico

2 shows so far announced in California. Personally I think these are 2 great show that should have totally different vibes. The Chico show is thrown around families and for all ages. Oakland will be a massive party for the 21 and will have more of an Dancehall feel. I think the Oakland show will be way more hard core. I'm going to do my best to make it to Oakland and see as many Sizzla shows as possible. Big ups to NKC for being the only person in the Bay Area to step up and put on the show.

Personally I'd really like to meet the people of NKC and maybe you can help me get some of the acts you bring in up to Chico.

All theses shows, including NKC, have the band right Diesel?
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 07, 2013 05:18PM
As far as I know all shows are backed by The Fire House Band. If you don't know who they are, trust me when I say it's the perfect band for him. They are regular studio and touring bands for artist like Sizzla and Luciano. This tour was put together proper and costs a lot of us promoters. This will be a very High Grade Show without a doubt. One thing I am excited for is I have a crew of 12 on my list. I'm hopeing Sizzla will be bringing some hot new artists from Judment Yard to showcase us. I can not say enough about this tour. DONT MISS IT.
Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC
November 07, 2013 05:26PM
Sweet thanks Diesel that's what I thought but they don't say anything about a band on the NKC website. If it was me I would be sure to say there is a band because it adds a lot to the show in my opinion. Either way it's a show not to be missed, got my tickets already.

Re: VIP Party Bus/ Sizzla NKC

I saw Alborosie and Protoje at NKC, and for sure I'll be at the Sizzla show as well. I am not sure why people complaint about this venue, I mean yeah, it is not the best venue in the bay area, but it is one of the only few venue still bring us some good reggae music. I never had any problems with security guards, for the Protoje show they let me in with an expire I.D. (security guard did think about for a minute before letting me in). The Bartenders are super chill and friendly, I've never had my car broken into. We should be grateful that venues like NKC still exist and still support reggae music. That's what reggae is all about, UNITY.

It's supposed to be a band show but not announcing it until some of his band members get their visa situation cleared

Just don't want to put it as a band show and their visas fall though, there's enuff hate on the venue last thing I want is for them to say false advertising- bless

I have heard there is a show in Arcada at a 200 person venue. Being such a small venue it is sure to sell out fast. Being Arcada and the Boycott of venues for artists like Sizzla and Caplton they might be waiting to announce it till a couple weeks before. The Caplton show was set, then canncelled and changed to a secret location that was announce the day of the show. Was anyone at that show? Where was it?
Then again maybe they just couldn't make it work. If you want to make sure not to miss him you might just want to get a ticket to one of announced show. Make it a mini vacation in either Oakland or Chico. If you want a party vibe go to Oakland, if you want a family vibe come up to Chico. All the shows will be great no matter where you see him.

OK here is the latest info I have on an Arcada show. A person that lives in Arcada has paid the deposit. My agent doesn't know if the show is in Arcada but should be that general area. I don't know the date and they don't want to release it until the promoters does. Keep your ears open, if I hear more I will let people know. Also some So Cal shows are trying to be added too.

posted on facebook earlier today:

I am in no way a spokesperson for Sizzla. Also keep in mind that things can change quickly when applying for a US visa in Jamaica.
That being said, Sizzla was finally granted a US visa interview this morning; he was denied once again. He's more than ready for a US tour; the US is obviously not ready for him. It is entirely out of his control.
I only post this because I have many friends that are involved in booking him; from the east coast to the west coast and in between.
I'm in the countryside of Jamaica and don't have much internet service so please don't inundate me with a whole heap of questions and such; I won't be responding. Everything that you need to know is within this message. Manners and respect.
