ATLANTA ROOTS REGGAE EVENT MOVES TO NEW NIGHT, BIGGER VENUE
For the past year, Rocksteady ATL, the only roots reggae event held regularly in the entire city of Atlanta, has been celebrated on the first Sunday of each month at Downtown Atlanta’s The Sound Table, located on Edgewood Avenue. Now the festivities will be moving to a bigger venue on a new night – Fridays, the night of the week perhaps most synonymous with going out and having a good time.
The new venue is Studio No. 7, at 393 Marietta Street in Atlanta, Georgia 30313. Rocksteady ATL will henceforth be held on the first Friday of each month, with the inaugural show hosted by Red Carpet Shelley at Studio No 7, booked for Friday September 4th, starting at 9pm and ending at 2am. Popular acts Highlanda Sound, DJ Passport, DJ Roots Queen and SuperPEC have already signed on for the event’s re-launch at the new venue.
In its first incarnation, Rocksteady ATL rapidly developed a strong reputation as a unique old-school reggae soiree powered by some of the best reggae roots acts in the South. At the new and bigger venue, guests will continue to enjoy world-class mixology along with critically acclaimed music in the same unique tradition that nightlife enthusiasts simply can’t find at any other spot in the city.
There is a $5 cover charge, with ladies admitted free until 12am. For more information about the bigger and better Rocksteady ATL, contact Kahlil Wonda at 404-552-0492 or email email@example.com.

Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie (born 27 May 1990), better known by his stage name Pato Ranking, is a Nigerian reggae-dancehall singer and songwriter. Patoranking, who is a descendant of Ebonyi, started his musical career doing underground collaborations with artists such as XProject, Konga, Slam and Reggie Rockstone.
He signed a record deal with K-Solo‘s Igberaga Records in 2010, releasing “Up in D Club” under the outfit. Patoranking became a protégé of Dem Mama Records after collaborating with Timaya on his song “Alubarika”. In February 2014, he signed a record deal with Foston Musik and released “Girlie O”, a single that put him in the limelight. On 9 February 2015, Patoranking signed a distribution deal with VP Records.
There is a new single to take note of by Glen Washington and E-Dee of the movie “Out The Gate” and “Revolution” featuring Irie Love.
The song is called “Where I Belong.” The lyrics talk about the challenges of living where the system puts the youth and minorities in general at risk to lose their life at the hands of law enforcement. “Teach the truth to the youth, remember Hands Up Don’t Shoot” sings Washington.
The feeling of the record is peaceful, at such a un-peaceful topic, reflecting the positive hand of hope and faith in guidance and protection.
