I'm not sure about the Bay area...

By the way:
It's the 25th Bob Marley Day Fest. (SD) Anniversary.

"Bob Marley day has been a part of San Diego for the last 25 years. Celebrating the life and sounds of reggae Shaman Robert Nesta Marley, 25th annual Bob Marley Day Celebration brings together some of the hottest reggae acts in the business."

I have no desire to see any of those artists...I suppose I-Wayne may make it worth the ticcket price if you live locally tho.

theres a few i would cross the street for, namely:

*Dezarie
*Misty in Roots
*Sister Carol...maybe, depends on who is backing her
*Queen Omega


i wayne though, i hear he is very weak in person and cant really do more than a couple of tunes without leaving the area

I'm with JB on the 'cross the street for' category, and there are a few more names that I know will be added that are equally strong IMO.

As for a SF show, i am hearing that it WILL happen, though it may be relegated to a one-day event as it was last year....

I've never seen him before either, but from what I hear he's a real hit or miss kinda performer. If he's feelin it he'll throw down all nite, but if not he'll play two songs half-ass and dip

not too bad a lineup...i'm juiced on i-wayne since i missed most of his set at the river...however when are we going to get a better venue? It's awefully hard to hang indoors at the sports arena for 7 plus hours...maybe somewhere outside like the embarcadero?

That must be it. This festival really struggles to sell tickets every year.

A promoter trying to sell more tickets? Unconscionable.

from what i remember-gregory did pretty good at sierra nevada 01. but thats the first and only time i've ever seen him perform. really wouldnt mind seeing him again-hope he shows up-
does any one else recall gregory getting upset at sierra 01? maybe i'm confusing him with some one else- but i remember him throwing his mic down and leaving the stage quikly- think maybe he was cut off early to make way for buju.
one love-juan love

gregory did perform in 01-rite before buju. maybe it was someone else that through a fit on stage-maybe it was a dream i had.
