The Best of Canadian Reggae
|Date:||Friday, August 16th 2019, 8.00 pm|
|Location:||Historic Logging Museum|
|Admission:||$35.00 plus HST|
Toronto’s classic Caribbean sound grew out of a tremendously vibrant Queen Street West scene back when live music pulsed from every club doorway. The Sattalites were in the thick of it, going on to win two JUNOs, charting with radio hits (Gimme Some Kind Of Sign and It’s Too Late) and becoming Canada’s longest standing reggae group. More importantly, they remain one of the great, feel-good party bands, mixing classics, new stuff, and a whole lot of fun.
Leader Fergus Hambleton has been fixture on the Canadian music scene for the last four decades. The Sattalites (the name is derived from legendary Jamaican ska band The Skatalites) will be performing as an 8 piece, with a 3-piece horn section and an original member recently returned to Canada.
This will be the first of two party/dance nights in the Logging Museum, so leave your phones at home and – as Toots sang - “Do the Reggay!”
