Yeah you need to know what kind of people are in the neighborhood and somehow overly-rumped women squeezed into sausage casing dancing in heels on a lighted disco floor does not scream "Westlake"
I remember going to a gig for them at the Grog Shop back when their dad had a stroke or heart attack or something and the community showed up in support. They sang this song then... and that was years ago. Can we say 'one hit wonder". I hope nobody shows up for either the video or the performance. This band doesn't deserve us and has abandoned its roots. Jersey Shore meets Motley Crue indeed!
... and reggae is entirely ignored... again. Tons of up and coming talent, too.
Hey ThorCleve... I'm a 57 year old fiscally conservative operations manager with IRS CAF Certification and I'M A REGGAE LOVER. Does that fit into your stereotype? "Wrong caliber of people"? I'mm wondering if that includes the staff members from Ohio State Attorney General's office that camped next to me last year?
Reggae is positive, loving, accepting, family-friendly, without bad language lyrics. It celebrates peace and love. Come see Carlos and the PLUS band at Shooters some summer Sunday and revel in all the children dancing and playing percussion. Go to the venerable Barking Spider Saturday night 1/28 to take in Jah Messengers, one of Cleveland's first reggae bands.... or on the same night SEE-I / Revolution Brass Band / One Vybe at the Grog Shop. There is a ton of reggae talent here in the NEO.
And I'm sorry... I LOVE my Lake Erie and frequent Edgewater Park and Whiskey Island 3 seasons a year. It's why I stay in Cleveland.
Come to the reggaefest and bring the kids. I think you'll love it. There will be fine food, dynamite jerk chicken, vegan food, hand made goods, and I know that Mitch of DyeHearts will have a booth with some of the best tie dye around. One Love!
