according to yami, he "has a grammy" for his work on that album

oh, i see. thanks for the clarification. i might also point out that although we might not put much stock in the grammy, those who are awarded one do.

i thought maybe it was for his song on "life and debt" or something. i forget which he did on there, "ivory towers" maybe.

JB,
I think the song Yami did on LIfe and Debt was Worldwide Coruption.. but I had no idea that the album won a Grammy!? Reguardless what a great film.

hurricane gilbert (GSTORM Records) is putting on this event...

the canvas gallery is a rather nice place, although i am not sure as to how it will lend itself to a live band/stage set-up. it has a large front room/space that could get pretty crowded, and a good sized three-sided bar

they have a rotation of local artists' work on display with varying musical and non-musical events

he did not win a Grammy.. This is false, false, false...
go to grammy.com and type Yami Bolo under artist..
Just because he was on 2 songs does not win him a Grammy..

>but I had no idea that the album won a Grammy!? Reguardless what a great film.

i was just guessing that a (phantom as far as i know) soundtrack album from life and debt may have won a grammy. as far as i know there is no such album and there was no such grammy for the album that didnt exist. nonetheless i agree; what a great film.

to false: i believe grammys are awarded to anyone contributing to an album that won a grammy and so it is legit to say you were awarded a grammy based on work on the album even though you did not "win" the grammy as such. its basically a matter of linguistics, and in this case i think it is within the realm of reason for yami bolo to state he is a grammy "winner" even if in fact the grammy was "won" by a project he was involved in.

whew didnt mean to make such a stir; it was just a question. its hard to deal with this board sometimes.

it was not Life and Debt that won the Grammy..Halfway tree won a Grammy..
After futher research Yami was on 3 songs.. If Yami won a grammy with Halfway tree thats all good..So did Bounty Killer and Capleton win Grammys as well?

>So did Bounty Killer and Capleton win Grammys as well?

if they were on that album then i would assume they were awarded one as well.

ps: again i MADE UP the soundtrack album to life and debt; i do not know if there was ever a soundtrack released much less if it won anything anywhere. hope that clears that up.

Ive been to many a event.show at the venue JB..
like the other bredren said, it is a nice place, in the inner sunset of the city, 9th and Lincoln...it has a nice crowd, ive just heard of the cops being kinda ruthless in there...dont smoke inside, you might get arrested by an undercover..its been happening the last few times theres been a reggae event or dancehall night there...its an art gallery, so its got kinda a small lounge type of feel...
hope that gives the eye some more insight,
Bless~

JB...I can assure that there will be no undercovers at Moes Alley on 4/20.

In fact, The Green-Up crew will be hosting a chalice contest in the back alley.

Respect, MK

That was a different live music nite 4 InI
with Yami providing the 20 minute encore to the evening festivities
but that is starting at the end of the nite
Tony Moses was the high energy glue who was at the heart
The selectas Hurricane Gilbert of Broken Silence and Jah Warrior Shelter were hittin it hard
Missed RawSun, then a few guest sing-jay, toasters kept the mike going
By Majestic the crowd was rocking and bass boooom
Ras Kidus wearing big $ medallion that definitely push my button
As the dollar is the temptation of the devil in luring us beneath the water to a sweet kiss goodbye
My highlight of the evening was Jr Toots taking us deep with his voice to new places
After a ½ hour or so break and noticeable number of audience giving up the ghost
Yami came on around 1:45 am and sang ‘til the said the place say must close at 2:05 or :10
Such sweet pipes but not in sync with the band
Keyboard player sounded lost at times, doodling
Drums and bass rock solid, warm bass bottom
Mr. Bolo lulled the crowd into the end of evening with a handful of tunes
And quick goodnite and out the door

Tony Moses was NOT present at this event!

Yami was late because somebody stole his wallet in his own hotel room.. rumours has it.. dont know the details..

In any event, it was VERY dissapointing, Yami played 5 songs!!!!! feel sorry for the folks who paid $20.

Perhaps there were 200 people thre

A bunch of us are really upset about this show, Yami was barley on the stage, after waiting for him all night long, then the establishment turns the lights on bright at 2 am exactly. They didn't care, it was not their fault that this artist was late.. they rushed everybody out within 15 minutes or so.. I tell you, folks were very upset left and right..
Re: YAMI BOLO LIVE & DIRECT IN SF FRI 4/21
April 22, 2006 08:37PM
I believe it ... hopefully he will be coming out again with the Yellow Wall Dub Squad later this year... if that happens I will produce the show @ my Enter The Dancehall party ...

I feel a little bad that i spread the word on this event ... I just want everyone to know that this was NOT a DeeCee's Soul Shakedown event
Re: YAMI BOLO LIVE & DIRECT IN SF FRI 4/21
April 22, 2006 09:03PM
no worries DeeCee... the real party is in berkeley this saturday... CUTTY RANKS!

Who was MC for this event? He was high energy.
Disappointed by Yami's low energy performance but not upset.
With so many people on the bill expecting a revue type show rather than a 2 hour set from the headliner.
Saturday the 29 is Bambu Station in an Oakland church
Roots outta St. Croix over old time dancehall in Berkeley
Sorry B. Ghost will miss it, ya brethen from the islands take this one.
No complaints on Innervision being only VI at SNWMF 06 given all the opportunities to see other St Croix folks at clubs around here
Niyorah was great at the Independent a few weeks back along with Army and Abja
And Zioneers coming back
Reggae in the clubs in Bay Area coming on strong after several years of being weak compared to other west coast locales
Thank you to the promoters for forwarding Jah culture
