SureShotfoto.com | Reggae legends Michael Rose w Sly & Robbie

October 01, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Welcome everyone!!! That's exactly how I felt inside when I went to this concert. It was an eye opening experience. I really hadn't thought about it until I started writing this post but after many years of being a reggae fan this would actually be my first actual live reggae concert. Seattle isn't exactly what you'd call a hotbed for reggae unfortunately. Maybe times are changing. Let's hope so.

Upon walking in I saw one of the openers who I was unfamiliar with but this crooner's smooth yet passionate vocals were as good as any these ears had ever heard. He was introduced by one of the absolute legends of Jamaican music Robbie (Robert Shakespeare) of Sly & Robbie fame. The honey voiced singer was Fenton Wardle of the Oakland, CA based "Reggae Angels".  Sureshotfoto.com-Michael RoseSureshotfoto.com-Michael RoseFenton Wardle of the Reggae Angels photo by SureShotfoto.com

After Fenton was done with his rather exhilarating set Sly & Robbie came out and did a music only set with both Sly & Robbie soloing on drums and bass respectively. 

 

 

The man himself, the on again off again member of reggae super group "Black Uhuru" Michael Rose (sometime spelled Mykal Rose or Mykal Roze). Michael was a great entertainer, the crowd loved him, and he even had fun with the camera man ie me. This was a wonderful, wonderful show. Neumos has done it again. It's no wonder why they're one of the best concert venues in Seattle.
