For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Easy Star live, you are missing one of the greatest live acts in modern dub reggae. It is not often, if at all, that I give love to modern reggae acts, especially American modern reggae acts. You may see a SOJA post now and again, but they are hometown. And they bring it every time. Most of these modern American reggae acts are just out there watering down the place.
Easy Star All Stars though? They blew me away the very first time I saw them play Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon in dub at the State Theater in Falls Church, VA six years ago. This band is live. They are the real thing.
Looks as if I’m the only one sharing these Easy Star shows online. I do hope that others will pick up on this band and give them the massive exposure they deserve.
I must give a huge shout to my friend Roots Souljah on ReggaeTraders who graciously seeded a bunch of Easy Star shows for me. Good lookin’ out bro….
Enjoy the first live performance of the Easy Star All Star album “Dub Side Of The Moon”!
