Ras Ghost Productions in association with Good Vibez Entertainment and SureThing Productions proudly present universal roots reggae legends THIRD WORLD to the Fox Theater in Old Town Salinas on Tuesday, April 19. Openers will include Native Elements and General Mike T plus crucial roots spun by DJ Trini and MC Rocky Bailey.

After a quarter-century of smash hit songs, sold-out tours and inspirational messages, one may wonder, "Where did it all begin? What gives Third World the staying power so rare in the music industry?" Third World is more than just one of the top reggae bands of all time; it is an institution. An institution that stands for producing and performing music that, while holding firm to the cultural and ancestral roots of its' members, still pushes forward the cutting edge of music worldwide. It is an institution whose themes are positive, progressive and internationally relevant.

Formed in 1973, Third World is committed to the excellence of reggae music by combining Jamaican reggae and folk music with all strains of African Rhythms, American Pop, Rhythm & Blues, and Classical music. Third World is one of the longest running and most diverse bands Jamaica has ever produced. Born out of a drive to write and perform original material incorporating reggae, rock and funk, and a desire to tour and take music to a wider audience, Third World was conceived.

The original members are William "Bunny Rugs" Clark - lead vocals and guitar, Stephen "Cat" Coore- lead guitar and cello, Richard 'Bassheart' Daley- bass. However due to Michael "Ibo" Cooper and William Stewart leaving the group, Third World has recruited some of Jamaica's most talented musicians: Herbert "Herbie" Harris -keyboards, and Tony 'Ruption' Williams -drums.

Third World opened for Bob Marley & The Wailers on their 1975 European Tour, and performed on some of his recordings. They have remained a force in international music ever since. Recipients of the 1986 "United Nations Peace Medal," 1992 and 1996 Jamaica Music Industry awards for Best Show Band, and several nominations for the Grammy Awards.

The latest album "Ain't Givin' Up" fuses the energy and of its newest members with the wisdom and musicianship of its original members. The album has 14 tracks and features guest appearances from Julian Lennon on "Hold Tight", Glen Washington on "Rebel Rock Session," and Lady Saw with "My Fire". The title track, "Ain't Givin' Up" confirms that Third World regardless of crisis, war, what ever what; they are not giving up, no way.

As Third World says, "If it's music, sweet music, let it play."
