Get Down With Summer Reggae Fest 2009

Summer Reggae Fest 2009 featuring Dub Addis, Mickey Mills & Steel, and Tony Dread & Give Thanks Band will be on the scene at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC this Friday, August 14.

Here at WKNC’s Strictly Reggae, we do our best to keep an eye out for great local acts, and when I found these tickets in the studio it was a definite eye catcher. This shows promises to be a hit as Dub Addis, one of the best roots reggae bands on the east coast, will perform. Dub Addis has roots in Ethiopia, the holy land of reggae music and Rastafarian culture, so it is fitting that their sound is authentic and rich with African rhythm and roots music. Having seen them live before, I can promise they will not disappoint. Mickey Mills, a legendary steel drummer, also brings weight to the line-up. With a long history in reggae music you now have a chance to see true musicians at work. Congratulations to Greg Chase who won a pair of tickets last week. Be sure to stay tuned for your chance to snag a pair.
