19 years and over
Sunday, April 7th at Club 9ONE9 Pepperpot - Victoria's Hypest Caribbean Radio and Victoria BC Ska Society are excited to present Hawaii/Compton, Cali Reggae Superstar J BOOG & HOT RAIN for the first time to the Island!
If you haven't heard of J BOOG you're in for a big (nice) surprise. His band's rhythm section is solid and the vocal harmonies are some of the best in North America. They remind you of roots reggae bands like Culture or The Itals or Israel Vibration. But through his close connections with Gramps Morgan and the Morgan Heritage Family whom he recorded with at Tuff Gong Records in Jamaica, the music is contemporary and high energy at the same time.
J BOOG's collaborations with performers such as Taurus Riley, Richie Spice and the Morgan Heritage Family have catapulted his name to the top of reggae and dancehall circles all over the world.
Opening for J BOOG & Hot Rain will be Victoria's own Blackwood Kings. Named after the street they're from, Blackwood Kings have been steadily making a name for themselves in the ska/reggae scene throughout Victoria. Their last memorable appearance was opening for Ghana's Paapa Wastik and the African Foundation Band w/ Vancouver's Giraffe Aftermath at Swans Nightclub.
Listen to Pepperpot – Victoria's Hypest Caribbean Radio every Saturday 6-7pm on CFUV 101.9FM or CFUV.UVIC.CA to hear music from J BOOG & Hot Rain!
