Upon strolling into the venue I used to be pleasantly shocked with what I walked into. I appeared round and I noticed all of the totally different races of individuals within the venue. This music is universally cherished! The Jamaicans had been in the home. Islanders, Europeans, British, younger individuals, previous individuals. Everyone was there for this reggae love affair.
The evening started with a bang – albiet a reasonably stress-free bang as they opened with ‘I Shot The Sherrif’ adopted shortly by ‘Stir It Up’. The sluggish dancing that was going down all through the group was definitely a calming ambiance to absorb. The crowd swayed with the sluggish, candy grooves from the Wailers.
The crowd got here unglued for ‘You May Be Liked’. What a dynamite monitor. ‘Is This Love’ was one other stellar quantity from the present, and it was love that we had been feeling. The entire crowd. Companions sluggish dancing, the ‘ladies nights out’ going down, the Jamaican contingent in absolute bliss. It was a fairly great spot to be.
They performed a couple of songs which continued this stress-free vibe, ‘No Lady No Cry’ was one other huge spotlight with a enjoyable singalong with the viewers, in addition to ‘All the pieces’s Gonna Be Alright’. Boy, Bob Marley had plenty of iconic songs. The most full of life efficiency of the evening needed to go to ‘Jammin’. I did like Jammin’ too boys.
This present was definitely a celebration of an icon and an excellent band. Chet Samuel was a implausible entrance man. He actually did it justice.
Many congratulations to Al Anderson and his band. To have the ability to proceed Bob Marley’s legacy all these years later is definitely one thing to be pleased with.
