Reggae Night! Featuring Yellowman, with The Zebulonites, and DJ Brandon Elsbree
Doors open at 7:00PM for advanced ticket holders
7:30PM for general admission
The Zebulonites - 8:00PM
Some of 'New York's Finest' local reggae veterans have combined forces to bring you an all new original act, The Zebulonites. To make a long story short, Soul Junkies and Groundswell had been friends for years from playing in the same scene together, and both bands had run their course at about the same time. This presented the perfect opportunity to unify members from both bands, and lo and behold, The Zebulonites were formed!
Yellowman - 9:00PM
King Yellowman has an incredible history in Reggae music. His upbringing at the Maxfield Home orphanage in Kingston and being albino in Jamaica were two obstacles the he overcame and went on to be (at one time) the biggest reggae artist since Bob Marley.
After winning a talent contest at Tastee Patties in Kingston, Yellow went on to excite reggae crowds all over Jamaica and the rest of the world with his boastful and sometimes bodacious lyrics. His ability to ride rhythm and excite a crowd made Yellow an instant hit in Jamaica. He also began to work with the Ace Sound System in St. Thomas and drew big crowds at his dancehall performances. Later in his career, Yellow began to spread out and work for a number of different producers, sometimes releasing as many as five albums per year.
