Collie Buddz Turnt it Up at SOBs!
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…
