Roots Reggae Hits The U.S. Capitol Area

(Washington, D.C.)  –  It is seldom that we can all agree on what is musical greatness, but starting Thursday, April 13, 2006 through April 16, 2006, Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland reggae fans will have the opportunity to witness and enjoy the truly great  talent of St. Croix's Batch, Ras Attitude & the Zioneers. They are some of reggae's finest emerging artists to come to the Washington Metro area in years!

Batch is one of St.Croix's most acclaimed producers, singers and musicians. After he founded SOUND VIZION Records (  in October 2000, he produced or co-produced many popular releases which include the popular compilations Culturellenium I & II, Mada Nile's debut "Rise Today," Midnite's "He Is Jah," Bambu Station's single "Amadou Diallo," Ras Attitude's "Happiness" and "Love Life"  and Jerome Austrie's debut gospel album "Love, Life, Spirit" which was nominated for several prestigious awards. While these accomplishments are worthy to note, Batch has also produced his own albums to worldwide acclaim. Songs from his albums "Who You Are," "Keep The Faith," and his newest release "Jah Guidance" can be heard online or on local stations in Germany, France, Brazil, Holland, the U.S. and Puerto Rico to name a few. 

Along with Batch will be Ras Attitude, one of the most versatile singers to have graced any stage in the Washington, D.C. area. From his DJ chants to his falsettoes, Attitude's amazing singing voice is only matched by his upful presence and stage performance. Singing songs from his previous two albums and his newest release, "Holding Firm," Ras Attitude is surely one attitude not to be missed. Super performer and lyricist!

ZIONEERS. ZIONEERS. ZIONEERS. It is with much respect we must highlight one of the most treasured bands from the Virgin Islands. While not receiving worl-wide acclaim, the ZIONEERS have trodded spiritually in the depths of the music from St. Croix to Puerto Rico since the early 90's. Holding the band's current foundation of drum and bass is the father and son combination of  Ras Ibeshee and his son Ras Kwome. You WILL talk about them after you witness their skill level and vibes. Multi-instrumentalist and singer Ras Ibednego and keyboardist Sonny Andrews gives to the group the versatility and heartfulness that makes this one of reggae's premier bands. Don't let the lack of corporate advertisement dollars fool you. The fans at the 2005 Sierra Nevada World Music Fest says so. The folks in New Orleans says so. Chicago, California, North Carolina, Boston, Virginia, Florida and all the many places that have experienced this band says so.

Each venue has it's very own appeal and these artists are really worth seeing three times in one week, they are that good.

  3. Hi!
    Gimme url for downloading XRUMER 5 for free!
    Thank you…
    Very-very much.
    I’m so need this program for advertise my website! This software is the best thing for online promo and mass posting, you know…

    And, dont send me XRumer 2.9 and XRumer 3.0 – that versions are too old!

    P.S. Google cant help me((((

  4. This is quite a up-to-date info. I think I’ll share it on Digg.

  5. He put his eye to the hole. He just managed to spy some people sitting in deckchairs chanting, before a finger came out of nowhere and poked him in the eye. As he staggered back, the people started chanting, “Fourteen, fourteen, fourteen…”

  6. No longer does a music lover need to bother about traveling
    out of range when a fantastic song comes on over the
    vehicle radio. Regular workshops ensure that the staff at PVM Radio subdivision is not only up to date
    with the latest technological innovations, but also ensures that the customers from diverse
    backgrounds are offered the best possible services to suit their tastes.

    Many people will be happy with replaceable batteries for home use and occasional outings.

  7. When we choose to do the opposite of nothing, then we can do something to help others and make a difference.
    Caution: when a hole is made in a can, there may be metallic edges that
    can cut one’s mouth. You can only acquire a small amount of in-game money or gold, and cannot participate in the auction house, send mail, join guilds, or even whisper to someone unless someone whispers to you first.

  8. Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller portion sizes – morning, snack, lunch, snack, dinner.
    Anyone who dares to make a closer inspection will find the underlying difference.
    Who does not need that little bit of elevation when trying to diet.

  9. If you find it a bit maddening to follow the daily fluctuations
    of the scale even though you are eating properly, pick three days of the week on which you will always weigh yourself (for example, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
    Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be done but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the remaining
    thyroid tissue to be completely starved. Many people don’t have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on a regular basis can definitely help when you’re working to lose weight and keep it off.
