BOB MARLEY DAY, BIG ISLE 06, A REVIEW

Bob Marley Day, Irie Ites, 06
Please let me give thanks to all who helped and all who came, and
let me tell you of my vision of this year's Big Island Bob Marley Day on
February 4th.
Every year it's been a test of faith in Bob Marley's great spirit. Once again,
like all of my 14 annual Marley Days, the day begins with a raging rain that
suddenly goes away, this one signaled by a long-lasting rainbow, red, green and
gold shining beneath a snow-capped Mauna Kea, turning into a day as clear and
gorgeous as Marley Days passed.
But this one was extra special, not only because my Jah Kine
band was honored by getting to back fabulous Anthony B and his original
set of songs, but it was also the debut gig at Irie Ites. A strangely
spiritual day, a day when the "freaks" and fun-lovers came out of
hiding and gathered at Jesse Dawn's big, big party on his land
in the woods. Suddenly people were everywhere--parked all the way
from Irie Ites "freedomland" on out to the highway. They walked in,
drove in, some hobbled in on crutches, wheeled in on
wheelchairs, some with beat-up cars, some with rented limos,
fancy convertibles, big-tire trucks and rusty bikes. Suddenly
lonely Glenwood Road became a reggae fantasyland of all colors, races
and dimensions of rub-a-dub destiny. Suddenly, it seemed, people started
believing in the credo of "good fate" that I've been singing about.
Suddenly even "reviewers," analyzers and criticizing down-pressers became
compelled to call themselves "lucky" to be there. Suddenly people all
around me went from frowns to smiles, suddenly people I never knew started
hugging me and acting like new good friends.
Indeed it was a wonderful day for me and many. Praise be to Bob Marley's
holy spirit and praise be to the natural halo of Big Island's Irie Ites.

>Suddenly even "reviewers," analyzers and criticizing down-pressers

is that how you refer to those who give honest opinions?

its funny, you call this a "review" and then you disparage "reviewers"...

i wont even mention how i didnt seem to notice a "review" of the show...

one love
