What is Rub-A-Dub?
A style of Jamaican Reggae emerging in the 70’s and 80’s, the term “Rub-a-Dub” comes from a dance style where the man and woman rub up very close together.

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.
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:
- 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.
Internationally renowned and acclaimed selector, Webba, formerly of Jamaica’s year-to-year sound, Metro Media will be our special guest selector for the next installment of RUB-A-DUB Second Sundays live at the Sound Table in Atlanta.
