Junior Reid LIVE in Solana Beach
|After a successful month-long tour April and May of 2005, Junior Reid and the Reggae Angels had a top performance at Reggae on the River August 2005, and Headlined The Dreadstock Festival in Vallejo CA, and also headlined the stadium Rocktober festivals on four of the Hawaii Islands. Now, a year later they embark on the road again to do a tour of festivals and club dates including the Northwest World Reggae Festival and The Victoria Ska Festival in Canada. Reid has a new CD called “Clean Up Your Heart”, soon to be released. He has recently toured Japan, South America, and the US east and west coasts.
Several of Reid’s hits such as “One Blood”, “Mashing Up the Earth” and “Fit You Haffi Fit” have risen to anthem status. Junior Reid first won the hearts of people around the world as the lead vocalist for Black Uhuru. He has matured and gained strength as an artist performing internationally as well as producing other artists in his One Blood recording studio in Kingston, Jamaica. Junior Reid is a top festival performer with athletic showmanship and melodic phrasing. His message inspires people from all walks of life and he is a mentor to many Rasta enthusiasts. Junior is truly a man of the people and always in demand.
On the most recent American tour, the shows were consistently well attended. Within the last couple years, the Reggae Angels completed a 50-city tour with Andrew Tosh (son of Reggae icon Peter Tosh), a 21- city tour with Junior Reid, a 9-city tour with the Abyssinians, a 9-week tour covering North America and Canada co-billed with Everton Blender, and another month-long tour with Junior Reid. After working the festival circuit, they did their fourth trip to Hawaii within a year where they co-billed with and backed Frankie Paul, who now resides in Gambia, Africa.
It’s been a hard, busy schedule. They have toured consistently since the mid-90s, bringing their spiritually uplifting message to the people. They are well loved. Lyrically their music affirms such qualities as generosity, balance and gratitude. The Reggae Angels have one of the most extensive discographies of any American Reggae band. Now touring with their 13th and latest release – Make Blessings, on the Explorer Recordings Label- the Reggae Angels should not be missed when they come to your area.
