Reggae History In The Making At SOBs

History was made at SOBs last night when rising reggae star Chronixx made his first-ever New York City appearance in front of a packed-to-the roof 100% sold out house. Those who could not make it inside stood out on the sidewalk rocking to the sounds of Zinc Fence Redemption band as they backed Chronixx and his opening act Kelissa. The young roots lion gave an impressive performance, reasoning with the crowd between songs about life in New York City and absorbing energy from the crowd and kickin’ up his heels as they sang along to his catalog of modern reggae classics. At the end of the night, he was joined by the legendary Barrington Levy, who sang one of Chronixx’s father’s songs and then got into a tune-for-tune segment with Chronixx before declaring that he would be a “big artist.” If that’s not a powerful co-sign then what else do you want? If you missed the show, you missed something special. But don’t fret—Chronixx will be playing in New Jersey tonight and this weekend he comes to C-Pac in Brooklyn. Here Comes Trouble!
