One of the true ledgends of Dub…
Soundcrash are excited to announce that Reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry will be performing LIVE at Village Underground.
Regarded with awe throughout the music world, Lee “Scratch” Perry holds status as one of the most enduring and original reggae producers and artists of all time. From his early days in the 1960’s as a singer and engineer for Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One in Kingston, through his production of the seminal Wailers’ classics African Herbsman and Soul Revolution, Perry’s innovative style marks him as one of reggae’s original treasures. His on the edge creative genius remains evident in his own solo albums of the 1970’s through his steady stream of mind-boggling releases of the 1980’s.
One of reggae’s undisputed pioneers, Lee “the Upsetter” Perry has worked with almost everyone from the Heptones to the Skatalites to the Clash. Certainly one of his most notable contributions was the pairing of Bob Marley, to Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer with the Barnet Brothers (Carley and “Familyman” who had been the heart of the Perry’s group, the Upsetters) and thus the forming of the Bob Marley and the Wailers.
We’re packed in a heavy weight lineup for this one featuring Reggae Roast and Brother Sage, Resonators and Kioko. The sound in Village Underground will be taken to the next level throughout the night by the addition of the FULL REGGAE ROAST SOUNDSYSTEM.
