John Brown's Body, Easy Star All-Stars
Friday, Apr 04, 2014 9:00 PM EDT
(8:00 PM Doors)
Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland, OH
Easy Star All-Stars will be performing DUB SIDE OF THE MOON, their entire reggae version of Pink Floyd's classic album, and some of your favorite versions of The Beatles, Radiohead, and Michael Jackson, and of course some Easy Star All Stars originals!
If you can’t depend on Cleveland weather, local sports teams, or the price of gasoline, what you got left? Count on a bass groove; a low-riding, slinky but muscular reggae riff. Tonight’s show will have no shortage of bubblin’ bottom frequencies with contemporary reggae conquistadors John Brown’s Body and Easy Star All-Stars. The 8-man band JBB draws power from sound innovators like Black Uhuru, Aswad, and Culture, but upon contact with the stage, possesses rock n’ roll strength. Their labelmates, Easy Star All-Stars, achieved worldwide acclaim a few years ago with their 2003album Dub Side of The Moon, a roots-and-dub reinterpretation of the Pink Floyd classic. Tonight, the All-Stars perform that album in its entirety, along with other tunes from their discography (like their Radiohead tribute Radiodread). Collinwood Sound System in full effect, reggae fans. If you don’t come to the show, you’ll surely feel that lovin’ thump from miles around when these two fan favorites bring their tunes to town.
