while I did not make it to Roseland Grill last night for Abyssinians, Etana & Roots Revealers,
the word I received was that the show went off rather well for having only a 7 day promotion campaign
My contact at Roseland said there were 150 or more of the faithful in support of the reggae vibes.
he said that Etana was AMAZING and having recently seen her perform at Sierra Nevada World Music Festival
las month, I have to totally agree! Etana has brought a new vibrance to the reggae scene worldwide. She
perforrmed in Amsterdam over the last weekend and flat out tore the place down from what I have read...
Look out for the Reggae Sistren coming forward! coming up at Reggae Rising festival there are quite a few
of the Ladies pon da line-up, Dezarie, Queen Ifrica, Lady Passion, Marcia Griffiths, Sister Carol,
(Freddie McGregor is slated to perform and he usually brings his dawtah, Shema with him!)...
so check out Higher Reasoning Reggae Time this coming Sunday morning, July 12, 3 - 6:30 am, I'll be giving
away TWO (2) pair of tickets to this festival which occurs July 31, August 1 & 2, at Dimmick Ranch in No Cal's
