Levi T,

As you can see, the players in the Red I Band comprise a different lineup than the Blackfoot Band, who backed these artists on the last tour.

As much as I will miss the presence of Tuff Lion, Gregory and Errol, I'm excited to hear the new lineup with Kenyatta on bass to bring the signiture I Grade sound.

This lineup backed several artists at the recent WRIP festival in St Croix, and I heard some great reviews of the performance from this unit.

Give Thanks for your support. Respect, MK

Having heard Red I Band in STX earlier this month, I gotta say that Kenyatta DID take the vibes of the music to a much higher level. Looking forward to this one for sure. Hopefully NiyoRah's new album "Purification Session" will be out in time for this tour...

Red-I has left the island with Niyo and Abja, to Venezula for the World Social Forum (see thread here). I talked with Niyo the night before they left and he said his album would not be ready before April. Maybe the cali and va eyes will be blessed enough to see "Purification" released on tour, but don't hold your breath.

And for sure Kenyatta can't stop! How about Natty Frenchy?? I suppose he'll replace Whelan Massicot on the US tour?

Lori,


The I Grade crew had a very positive experience coming through Washington and Oregon last summer, and they will be back when the time is right.

I hope that Warren steps in and brings this package to the SNWMF!!

The Red I band is also ready to back a number of other serious artists as well, as evident by their recent performance in St. Croix. The village stage is calling....

Yeah Trinity,

on top of the amazing village experience last year, the VIs have an entire slew of other artists that should grace the SNWMF stage. Upcomers like Daddy Locks (aka Ras Rubal), Volcano (aka Lava), Mosiah, Xcaliber, Bobo Ites, Mada Nile, Sista Joyce, Peace Maker, Jordon, Asher, etc... all need to be heard by your masses. (And they really don't all sound the same!!)
