Sorry....I was a little hasty there. I just saw the flyers for the shows coming up at the Jewish Mother--nice. Give thanks for all the works that are making these things happen. Anything happening the weekend of July 8th? Other venues in the area to check?

Peace

if i'm not mistaken i think there is a site solely dedicated to VA reggae scene, but i may be wrong.

i do know that toots and the maytals play today in Virginia beach at the verizon wireless amphitheater.

steel pulse and the wailers play ntelos pavilion in portsmouth, VA on the 8th. and if that isn't your cup of tea then erykah badu plays in VA beach on the same date. the wailers have a handful of shows on the 9th (glen allen) and the 10th (ashburn).

SOJA plays on the 13th (falls church) along w/ matishayu on the same date (jewish mother).

The all good festival is that weekend on the 15th (richmond).

Karl Denson's Tiny Universe is july 31 at jewish mother, not reggae, but very nice - you'd enjoy.

and john brown's body plays august 20 and 21 (VA beach, Arlington).

knock yourself out.

Its supposed to be a challenge. That's why they call it a shortcut. If it was easy, it would just be the way. -Road Trip

Nice ATLiens, JBB at the Clarendon Ballroom in Arlington.

What up Jahboo,

No, I missed the Midnite show in DC, but I will be at the State Theater for the Gomba/Jahcousitx/SOJA show...Kwame might be there too (although I've never heard his music before), also I think the Iternals will be playing...there an up and coming dub band from up here.

They put on a similar show a while back, Gomba was really tight, then Jahcoustix came on and did a solo acoustic set, I think he was just trying to check out the vibe over her in the U.S. before he brought an entire band with him like he is this time.

anyway im looking forward to it..

thanks for all the info

peace

as far as i know ... Gomba is backing Jahcoustix and Kwame down here ... at least that's what the booking agent told me ... yeah I caught the Richmond show with SoJA/Jahcoustix & Gomba Jahbari ... I have a soundboard of most of the show including the last tune when Jahcoustix and Jacob came up and held the mic with Gomba ... nicey nice !
Re: REGGAE IN VIRGINIA?????
June 30, 2005 06:35PM
ahhhh...Jahcoustix is prolly just being backed by Gomba up here too then...(Not a bad idea as Gomba are soooo money on the respective instruments)

hey I gotta a nice Gomba soundbourd and also a stellar Cultura show on cd...hint hint

July 05, 2005 08:15PM
Give thanks for all the info.!!!! Wow. Ask and you shall recieve around here, eh??? I really am grateful for the info. and hope to be able to check some of these shows this summer. I think Matisyahu and the I-Grade Tour are my top priorities right now. We'll see how things play out..... Large up the VA reggae massive!
Re: REGGAE IN VIRGINIA?????
July 05, 2005 09:13PM
you really should trust me and make the Global Reggae Fest a Priority as well ... for real ... even if i wasn't promoting the show ... i'd say the same ... and for the Matis show ... you might consider getting an advance ticket ... Jewish Mother says they've been getting a lot of calls and sold a lot of tickets and we have had a few JCC's tell us they may be bringing groups ... so just a head's up ... but ... email me ... get my cell number and if anything ... call me if you can't get in to something ... peace

wanted to add that the spotlight shows are all ages and non-smoking(cigs)
Re: REGGAE IN VIRGINIA?????
July 11, 2005 03:43PM
Thanks again, Jahboo. The global reggae fest is most definitely a top priority for me, but I was looking more at what would be realistic given my work schedule. But, you never know. Things might just work out! peace
