Chronixx Takes the Stage in Atlanta and Does not Disappoint

His long awaited first show in the Atlanta area promised to be epic and it was indeed as Chronixx along with his Zinc Fence Redemption band rocked the Atrium event center in Stone Mountain, Georgia this past Saturday night.

I arrived at the almost-sold-out venue just after Chronixx entered the stage – approximately 2:30 a.m.  There was a sea of people congregated to see the world’s current top reggae act live in person, but this was no ordinary Atlanta reggae concert crowd.  I saw diversity!  Every race and age group seemed to be represented and Chronixx was apparently poised to back up all the hype that has surrounded his name for the past year and a half.

The backing band was sonically flawless all night long, delivering the bass lines and melodic accompaniment that Chronixx demands on the road. He only performs with his Zinc Fence crew and together they are a killer performance team – a musical force to be reckoned with.  This time around they created a synergy that lasted for approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes on stage at the Atrium.

2013’s Reggae artist of the year, credited with being the catalyst of the present Reggae revival controlled the crowd like a veteran, injecting more energy and understanding into the audience with relevant speech in between musical sets.

Chronixx offered singles from the “Dread and Terrible” EP and all were graciously received by the Atlanta onlookers. To the delight of fans, he served up songs that helped solidify his title as leader on the new school such as “Odd Ras (Nah Follow Nobody),” “Behind Curtain,” and “Smile Jamaica.” He infused Bob Marley and Super Cat lyrics as a part of the whole package, which all came off very well. After returning for an encore set, Mr. McNaughton finally closed out and bid the Atlanta people farewell.

Even though for many reasons (which I will not list right now) the Atrium is far from being my favorite concert venue, I will give the “Dread and Terrible” tour’s Atlanta show extremely high ratings. This was one of the best performances I have seen here in a very long time (think 1990s). Kudos to the promotion team of Pak Entertainment and Webba Promo. For Chronixx, the future is bright, and reggae is in good hands.
