Chronixx & Zinc Fence Redemption Start A Fire In NYC

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!

It has been some time since Collie Buddz has graced NYC with his presence but his performance on April 18 was worth the wait. The Reggae/Dancehall artist hit the stage at SOBs as his second stop on the Light it Up Tour and brought in quite the diverse crowd. But it was all lighters up, love and respect for the music.

Brooklyn’s very own New Kingston Band, opened up the show and played some Reggae classics. With veteran session musician Courtney Panton on bass and his three sons, Suki, Slim, and Courtney Jr. holding down the rhythm section, this group has a sound that can’t be denied. Cris Cab followed with some of his hits off of his new mixtape, Red Road. New Kingston and Cris Cabhad the crowd jamming with their amazing performances. By the time it was Collie’s turn to come around, the crowd was fired up!

Taking the stage with a brand new rub-a-dub tune called “Nice Up Yourself,” Collie performed some of his classic hits, “Come Around,” “Just Let Me Know,” “Blind to You” “Mamacita” and a few of his recent singles, “Won’t Be Long,” and “Payback’s a Bitch.” He also performed a few exclusives off of his upcoming album: “Live Life” and “Light It Up,” which introduces a very new sound for Mr. Buddz.

Collie’s performance was lively, filled with energy and it had an everlasting vibe. His fans were filled with excitement when he hit the stage and they left with an experience that many don’t offer at their performances. Can’t wait for him to “Come Around” again. Video After The Jump… Read more »
