To celebrate International Reggae Day (July 1) and to start the 2015 summer season off with a positive vibration Highlanda.net and The Honorary Citizen present the “Rocksteady ATL Sunny Season Day Party,” on Sunday July 5th at The Sound Table(483 Edgewood Avenue, Atlanta, GA) from 5pm to midnight with host Archangel SuperPEC, live performance by Little Pinchers, and live DJ sets by Isis Swaby, Love People Sound, DJ Passport, and Highlanda Sound.
The highly talented Little Pinchers, a singer whose music is as he describes, “For the mature audiences” will bolster the evening with an intimate performance sharing his great passion for music live. Spinning all vinyl selections and appearing in Atlanta for the very first time will be Isis Swaby, a Harlem bred DJ/Musician/Visual Artist and daughter of the iconic reggae dub producer, Augustus Pablo. She will be joined on the decks by Sound Table residents Kahlil Wonda of Highlanda Sound and DJ Passport (Dread Takeover mixtape series) along with guest DJ Chigga of Love People Sound.
The Rocksteady ATL event takes place on the first Sunday of each month as an alternative to the mainstream dancehall parties which have become commonplace. DJ Passport and Kahlil Wonda’s vision was to create a nightlife option to celebrate authentic reggae music in the city of Atlanta, and provide an uplifting experience where patrons can enjoy classic roots reggae, dub, and lovers rock music combined with the best quality conscious reggae of today.
Voted Best of Atlanta 2014 by Atlanta Magazine and located at 483 Edgewood Avenue near the intersection of Boulevard in the rejuvenated, historic Old-4th Ward district of downtown Atlanta, the Sound Table is as well known for its ambiance and acoustic properties as it is for fabulous cocktails and world-class mixology.
The tribute event will be held on Friday, February 6, 2015 from 10pm-3am to commemorate Marley’s 70th birthday, as well as to honor the birthday of Highlanda Sound co-founder ĀGARD. Highlanda’s Kahlil Wonda, who shares an Aquarius birthdate with his wife, will also be celebrating on this special occasion. Musical selections as global as Marley himself will be presented all night by Highlanda Sound’s other co-founder, SuperPEC Archangel alongside selector M.I.C and surprise guests.
Located at 393 Marietta Street near to The World of Coca-Cola and Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, the venue Studio No. 7 is billed as a space for creatives and will offer a blend of art, cuisine, cocktails and music for this event. Tickets starting at $10 will be available online and at the door.
Although he passed away in 1981, Bob Marley’s music still accounts for over half of all reggae music sales, and his message continues to resonate across the globe as a beacon of truth, justice, and love.
“Mr. and Mrs. Wonda and I wanted to organize a big Aquarius anniversary, meanwhile Highlanda’s supporters were asking for a special event on a weekend since many folks are unable to attend Rocksteady on 1st Sundays. This all coincided with Bob’s 70th and Studio No. 7’s interest in hosting an event with Marley-inspired music. More than just reggae, its an international music phenomena and a great way to infuse people,” said ĀGARD, founder of Highlanda Sound and ĀGARD Entertainment.
