Damian Marley, Julian Marley and Stephen Marley @ O2 Indigo, 26th July 2012

Wow, Damian, Julian and Stephen Marley all in one big Blessed night of live Reggae music, 3 Lions singing their hearts out to a well received multicultured O2 Indigo crowd.

I’ve covered a few Reggae gigs in the past but this was rather special, Damian just delivered pure fire, going through track after track, he even sang Patience, my favourite tune off the Distant Relatives album. Julian then stepped out, its amazing how much he resembles his father, moving and singing just like Bob, of course they collaborated and had me jumping up n down in the pit when they dropped “Violence” from Julian’s album “Awake”

To make things more special, Stephen then took to the stage, guitar in hand and continued the vibes, however, it was when he said “who like Gargamel?” reffering to Buju Banton, Damian then joined him side by side as the Dub vibe began and the lyrics dropped “we are soldiers….in Jah army….” and the crowd went nuts! Stephen produced most of Damian’s three albums and it was amazing to capture them performing side by side.

Back in the small picturesque town of Cluses in North Eastern France, just over the border from Geneva, this small town comes together once again to put on a full 4 day festival with a decent line up, this time also including Asian Dub Foundation.

Maverick Sabre Tour @ Exeter – Lemon Grove and London – Royal Albert Hall, 25th & 27th March 2011

I was an instant fan the first time I heard Mav sing live, just him and his guitar, the acoustic versions of “they found him a gun” and “I need” got me thinking instantly this guy is going to be massive.  A couple years on and he’s performing up n down the country, also recently supporting Cee Lo Green on tour in Birmingham and Shepherds bush, I was lucky enough to be part of the tour for two dates, Exeter Uni and The Royal Albert Hall, with the latter being part of the Teenage Cancer Trust event that also included Jessie J and Tinie Tempah.

In Exeter, the Lemon Grove in Cornwall House was the venue, alongside Example and DJ Wire, Maverick performed to a lively Uni crowd who were very happy that he was in town.

It was Sunday’s gig at the Royal Albert Hall however, that really had the atmosphere that was necessary to host this artist.  The sound in this venue is amazing and the performance did not disappoint, with Maverick receiving much deserved respect from the packed crowd.

Rebel MC, Screaming Soul & DEFDFIRES @ Jamm, Brixton, 1st May

Straight after the comedy night in Catford, I made my way down to funky Brixton town to go and Jam at the Jamm on Kennington Road, I’d just missed Rebel MC do his thing, but luckily caught DJ Snuff on the decks, Screaming Soul and DEFDFIRES performing on stage…Screaming Soul smashed it, heavy bass lines and dub infused beats alongside revolutionary conscious lyrics – our own Nas & Damian Marley duo, straight up!  DDF next up with their double time raps and funky beats, big up Jazza on the dance moves still, Prymary Source, EL and Nemesis ripping up the mics, its been a while so it was extra special to see these guys nicing up the place, check out the myspace pages for a sample of the music…
