who else do you want?
March 07, 2006 10:44PM
let the masses see who else you want to hear at the fest this year.

excentric sound system
midnite
lila downs
manu chao...

the list can go on these are powerful.

I believe that Manu Chao (who produced the latest album by Amadou and Mariam) has had an open invitation to SNWMF for many years now. In fact, Fermin Muguruza was invited to perform a few years ago in the hope that his positive reports regarding the festival would entice Manu to grace the stage some day....

Buju Banton is on the top of his game this year, he has had a stellar performance at this fest in the past.

I am LOVING all of the dancehall riddim relicks coming out, Throwback Giggy, Mudd Up, Punanny, Cuss Cuss... lorda mercy.

Re: who else do you want?
March 08, 2006 03:35AM
Anthony B
X-Centric Sound System
Groundation
Misty in Roots
Warrior King
Angelique Kidjo
Dubwise

Mad Professor will be great. I hope he works the board for everybody! Of the last six years I have attended the Fest, the best sound from the main stage (IMHO)was when Mad Proffessor was on the board. Top notch!

And I like Doug Green (aka Mr Babbles). I still tell some of the stories he told between sets to friends- Like the one about the Hopi wise man who was explaining to an anthropologist why so many Hopi songs are about water. And I like "Remember, be good. And if you can't be good, don't get caught!"

Re: who else do you want?
March 08, 2006 03:46AM
Misty in Roots would be a dream come true for me, having never seen them

Has Natural Black ever playd SNWMF, or has any of you seen him? Assuming he puts on good show, i'd like to check him out.

Other people mentioned that id love to see... Max Romeo, Congos, Michael Prophet.

From the Virgin Islands... Danny I, De Apostle, Abja, Ancient King, Niyorah, Sabbatical Ahdah, Jahcob Seed

I missed warrior king when he played two years ago not knowing who he was at the time, love to see him. Lutan was great last year.

Chukki Star, Fantan Mojah, Jah Mason, Ras Shiloh would all be wonderful additions

Um - riffy, apparently you missed him last time he played SNWMF? I can listen to any of his albums all day long... and Dennis Bovel is a show all by himself.

Mapfumo, sure - but wasn't he just here?
Re: who else do you want?

I don't dislike LKJ, and I'm glad to hear your enjoying his albums so well. He does some nice music indeed. Truthfully, I'd like to see others because he puts me to sleep.

Re: who else do you want?
March 08, 2006 07:23AM
Extra credit additions...

Ras Midas and Root Awakening

Midnite (cause they do it long and slow)

&

Olodum (from Brazil) on a flatbed, rolling through the venue and parking lots every couple of hours, instead of the regular, yet random drum circles.

Peace

Re: who else do you want?
March 08, 2006 07:26AM
haha - k, fair nuff. I can guarantee a more energetic show than the "betweeen dusk and dawn" guys. Kinda like the Twinkle Bros - I was actually surprised at the energy myself.

Come to think of it both "first time live" experiences were courtesy of SNWMF. I love this festival....

Re: who else do you want?

Carlton Livingston would be great

Burro Banton if he even plays shows It'd be really cool to see him

Johnny Osbourne and if you're gonna have him you may as well get Sugar Minot so he can cover some back-ups

Little John that'd mek me say yeah!

Sammy Dread

I'd say the pedophile josey wales if he wasn't a pedophile

De Apostle.... saw him inna little club, and came to the conclusion that he needs to play a big show........ he agrees

anyone with 'ranking' or 'ranks' in their name
Re: who else do you want?
March 09, 2006 05:35AM
Greetings JAH's people, much love and respect !

I saw a California band play in Tahoe this past Summer by the name of Mystafya and bought their CD, it's incredible! Where are these guys, they should be playing at the festival. I've checked their website but don't see any shows listed. Anyone out there know what's up with this band?



Shows I'd like to see again:

Carlton Livingston
Dezarie w/Midnight
Bushman
Horace andy
Misty in Roots
Twinkle bros.
Frankie Paul w/roots radics
Mystafya
Re: who else do you want?
March 09, 2006 06:30AM
Yes Loveshine - Mystafya would be a great addition. They were hanging at the fest last year - great guys. Jamal has one soulful and powerful voice, with Franklin holdin down the roots in style, and Kimbuck is simply amazing on guitar. Was asking DrummieX why he wasn't letting loose on the album, only to find out he wasn't in the band when they made it. They get my vote...
Re: who else do you want?
March 09, 2006 07:02PM
A friend told me that Mystafya came up on the post. First of all, thanks for the nice words Dubguy, hope to see you soon.

Loveshine, happy to hear your satisfied with your purchase of "Run Free." The band is much more recognized in Europe than in our home state. A big supporter of the band has been Bahilman of Creation Steppin and now of SKY.FM. which place the CD in at #22 last year. We have been working on our 3rd CD which has cut into our performance schedule. Look for us in and around the Sac/Tahoe/Chico region as we will be booking dates for the late spring into Summer.....hopefully SNWMF!!

Blessings,

DrummieX

Re: who else do you want?
March 09, 2006 10:56PM
I would love to see another VI showcase, so much young talent out there that reamins unexposed out here for the most part. Would love to see;
De Apostle
Sabbattical Ahdah
Bobo Hites- his own set this year, loved the few songs he did last year
Mosiah
Lava

all of them would not only mash up a stage show but would be huge in the dancehall, would especially love to De Apostle in the dancehall.

Also how about some female performers,
bring back queen omega for starters
also
Queen Ifica
Dezarie
and would love to see Mada Nile
alisha

Re: who else do you want?
April 14, 2006 07:49PM
WOW....what a collaberation of desires. My pick of the year to SELL TICKETS:
Damian Marley, (Seems to be selling tickets everywhere he goes, sorry for being so obvious but he is what he is....POPULAR) Dezarie with Midnight. (Just did that gig a while ago in Nevada City. Pure niceness and sold lots of tickets. Anthony B, Buju Banton, yeah I know, they played ROTR last year, and delivered....Other artists that would draw but not as collosal, all the modern Dancehall artists that sing.....
Bands that did well on the village and should play the main this year: Bambu Station, Tokyo Ska, I'll say it again, Dezarie with Midnite. I'm sure there are more but the ones that stick in my head......The ones that had big crowds in front of the stage.....The rest is just space filler. Fodder....
Dance Hall: The usual, Rory, though I'ld like to see more of the main stage artists stand up in htere with him, then of course Stur Gav was great with all the stand ups, also last year Sugar Minot was pure dancehall comedy ragga muffin style. Ya'll know how much I love that. Seems the massive did also..... Anyway, that is my wiggy words of wisdom for the day. Ites!

Hey DrummieX - what's up man? Glad to hear about the new release (AND the possible Chico date coming up). Hope to see the whole crew (say hi to Mikey, Loren and the whole gang for me) real soon. Was wondering where you guys been hiding out... =D

Re: who else do you want?
April 19, 2006 06:25AM
Well hello Dubguy, this is the first time in weeks I've looked at the board and there you were, writing me just minutes before....I caught your vibe! Hey, the Mystafya posse is looking for a roots keyboard player....do you know of any in the area. Have had all sorts of offers to play around here and Europe, just haven't been fortunate enough to find a player into the music. Working hard with new material. Once the keys are in place, a new CD will soon come. Can't wait, we were at the top of our game when we lost a player. We have faith that Jah will provide (he always does). Looking forward to Boonville. I'll let the guys know you said hi.

Send us a keybord player please!!

Blessings,
-DrummieX
