Jetsetting Across the Globe: Third World Band’s 35th Anniversary

The globe-trotting reggae ambassadors are off to their next destination, Europe.  The band, who announced their 35th Anniversary Celebration tour late last year, have been traveling extensively since launching the tour at the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival on January 29, 2010.  Since then, the group has performed at Jumbies in St. Thomas, Foxy’s in Jost Van Dyke – British Virgin Islands, Shirley Heights in Antigua, Captain Hiriam’s Resort, Cruzan Amphitheater, Jannus Landing in Florida and at the St. Kitts Music Festival in St. Kitts.

Having covered the Caribbean, the group will travel to Europe for a two week tour.  They will perform at the Reggaeland Festival in Plock, Poland, NOWA Reggae Festival in Barcelona, Dour Festival in Belgium and Might Sounds Festival in Czech Republic.  Richard “Bassie” Daly states, “While we have traveled to Europe on several occasions, it is always meaningful to us that we get invited back time and time again.  We are very fortunate as a group to be celebrating such a monumental anniversary and still having fans that come out to see our shows no matter where we go.”

Third World Band recently released their single “By My Side” featuring Tessanne Chin, from their upcoming album Patriots. In addition to releasing the single, the video, directed by Adrian Allen features Robert Townsend’s popular online series “Diary of a Single Mom” starring Monica Calhoun, Valery Ortiz, Janice Lynde, Richard Roundtree, Billy Dee Williams and Leon – www.pic.tv/singlemom. The video also features clips from Third World’s historical live online rehearsal stream.  Upon its release, the video debut at #5 on Suzie Q’s “Video Alley” charts.  The single on the forthcoming album Patriots/Third World Music Group,will be available for purchase via Third World’s digital store, which will be launched on August 10, 2010.

Upon their return from Europe, the band will tour the United States and Canada the entire month of August and September.  To view the schedule in its entirety, visit www.thirdworldband.com.
