Short but Sweet: my set at the Health and Wellness Reggae Festival 2016

Saturday, July 16 in Atlanta, I had the pleasure of performing once again at the historic Wren’s Nest.

My time on stage at this open-air festival was short but sweet. Lion of Judah Sound set the musical pace earlier and many great performers and bands hit the stage all day.

Reggae Event in Atlanta, Rub-A-Dub

What’s that one reggae party monthly at that one place in the city?

As you may know if you have visited this blog before, myself and The Honorary Citizen are producers of a successful 100% reggae event concept, Rub-A-Dub, which occurs on the second Sunday of every month in downtown Atlanta.

Rub-A-Dub Atlanta Reggae Event

As resident DJs at Rub-A-Dub, DJ Passport and I have invited different guests to partake in the non-mainstream vibe each month.

This is truly a unique concept, not just for the soundtrack, but especially because of this list of selectors to have performed at  Rub-A-Dub:

  • Webba
  • Juggla
  • Cartel Sound with Philip 5
  • DJ Empress Rah
  • Yahquan Da Travellah
  • DJ Hourglass
  • DJ Redds from Spectrum Disco
  • Funkregulator Celo (456 Sound)
  • DJ Lion
  • Empress Movements with Tach
  • SuperPEC Archangel

Lion of Judah Sound and Nijah Don get credit for assists as well.

You might want to check in at one of these events if you even remotely like reggae music because I have more heavy weight guest sounds coming in to play for you “inna Rub-A-Dub style.”

Cartel Sound and SuperPEC will be featured on July 10 so expect to hear great selections, and solid mixing for FREE all night.  That’s right there will be no cover charge for #RUBADUBATL through summer 2016.

Sign-up to get updates and special offers for all of my events.

Lt. Stitchie Defends His Integrity After Being Slammed On A Florida Radio Station

 

 For Immediate Release May 25, 2016 Kingston, Jamaica Lt. Stitchie Defends His Integrity After Being Slammed On A Florida Radio Station

Lt. Stitchie

Pastor, motivational speaker, author and iconic recording artist, Lt. Stitchie, is today defending his integrity after Brother Gary Smith, a popular gospel promoter, went on the radio and began tarnishing his name.

Brother Gary Smith hired Lt. Stitchie to perform at his annual memorial gospel festival which is scheduled to take place on May 28th and 29th. On both days the event is slated to begin at 5pm. Lt. Stitchie decided that instead of staying in his hotel room on Sunday the 29th, he will be attending church service at the Upper Room Tabernacle where he will share his testimony with the members. Brother Gary Smith was not happy with the Lieutenant’s decision as he apparently prefers that Stitchie remains in his room until show time. Hence, Brother Gary Smith took to the radio and began bashing Lt. Stitchie in a very disrespectful manner.

Surprised and disappointed by this, Lt. Stitchie has decided to withdraw from Brother Gary’s annual memorial gospel festival. He said that, “he is astonished that anyone who knows him would have a problem with him wanting to attend church, regardless if it is before or after a show he is booked to perform on.” He also stated that he will still be attending the Upper Room Tabernacle this Sunday, the 29th of May because he is a lover of Christ and will share his testimony whenever and wherever the opportunity presents itself.

Stitchie is also scheduled to preach at the 2016 Gospel Fest Cruisade happening tonight, May 25th, at New Alpha Worship Center in Miami Gardens and tomorrow, Thursday May 26th, under the tenth at Da Grill in Lake Worth.
