8 PM Ras Droppa
Born Samuel Richards, musical artist Ras Droppa, has either been making music or
helping to spread music throughout the world for close to thirty years now. This
would be incredible for someone so young but not if you consider that he has
been singing since the early age of three. Along with his older brothers in the
streets of Jamaica, Ras Droppa began as most of his brothers did, by singing and
playing the melodica, his first true instrument.
Ras Droppa is well known and respected throughout the New York area reggae
scene and around the world, and whether headlining with his band or supporting
another artist on bass guitar and vocals, one can be assured that they're in for a
great evening of entertainment with this passionate musician and consummate
artist filled with energy and talent, poised to take on the world with his music.
