When does the Dancehall start jumping?

last year I went in the dancehall an hour after the show and there was no one in there. I always hear about someone showing up and putting on a killer show. When does it get going?

> Jay from Irie Vibrations?

if you mean that band from back to like '90 or so then no, that would be Boomshot who went on to play for Cornerstone

Sanjay only DJs

Cornerstone yes - and Levi Jr. - what became of them? I'll tune into Sanjay and give it a listen. Big up TR.

Levi is still doing it, only in Sac area where he lives now. he'll probably be at the show, although i don't know for sure since we haven't talked lately

Ah - glad Levi is still doing his ting. I was back down in SC mountains for many years - when I came back the reggae scene I remembered had complety vanished - kinda sad... okay - nuff sadness - time for JOY!

Of course I could quit being an idiot and meet some of the current scene..obviously you are in (or near) Chico TR - we should link up sometime for a brew or something - send me an e-mail if you up for it..

I have not seen Sanjay in years. I hope I run into him at the show. Brining my wife to the show this year. We met in Duffy's about 10 years ago.

What I meant was when does the thing get jumping? I have read here on the post board and heard things like Mr. Vegas, Brigadier Jerry, and other big name acts have come in just for the dancehall. When does this part get started? As I said, I have gone in there like an hour after the mainstage headliner is over and there are only a few people if any in there. Then the next day I hear Vegas showed up and stuff. If someone has gone there before and experienced this let me know what the deal is.

i dont know what the deal was the year of the vegas fiasco but the past couple years things start happening around midnight in the dancehall. last year mighty crown came on slightly before that and sturgav with u roy and briggy started up around 12:30 or 1am. when youre done at the main stage just come up there and if it aint happening yet, check back in 15

What is the dancehall scene like? Is it more of a rave like some of the campsite parties, or is it better? I heard Vegas wasn't that great. I heard he went into a rant about a tech situation; I have also heard he did this at rotr. Is he that way?

Yeah spliff, I saw him at rotr in 01, and he was yelling "turn up the mic", and then he called the crowd san francisco several times, he basically got booed off stage. I didnt care cause everton blender came on afterwards, pure niceness...
