Tropical Storm Stays Far, Roots Vibrations Catch A Fire At Queens Stage Show

On Sunday, September 4, boom chunes reverberated from early afternoon across the pristine greens of Queens’ Roy Wilkins Park. It was Irie Jam Radio’s 23rd Anniversary and heavyweights were out in full force to celebrate.

After enduring over eight years of the artist’s absence, being reunited never felt so good. Photos After The Jump…
