The night of Saturday, June 7 will explode musically when internationally known Reggae star, Roy “Gramps” Morgan, and local Bouyon band Triple K Global take to the stage at the Sisserou Hotel.
The show, dubbed “Reggae meets Bouyon Volume one,” is one of many planned, promoter of the event, Dane Smalling aka Danger Dane, told DNO.
“It’s always been my dream to host a show where I can fuse the culture with the Reggae music from Jamaica and the Bouyon music from Dominica,” he stated. “And this was the ideal opportunity to do exactly that … it is one of many more volumes to come.”
Roy “GRAMPS” Morgan, a member of the internationally renowned reggae group, Morgan Heritage, was born in Brooklyn, New York, but grew up playing football in Springfield, Massachusetts with his parents and more than 20 of his siblings.
The vocalist and keyboard player is famously known for his solo “Wash away the tears.”
He released his debut solo album entitled ‘Two Sides of My Heart’ that earned him a number of nominations for awards.
Smalling described Gramps as a “beloved artiste known right around the world and not only Dominica.”
“He is a very conscious person, down to earth and that’s the kind of vibes that Dominicans love and Gramps Morgan was the first one I pick for this one,” he said.
The Reggae artiste will visit the Pierre Charles Secondary School on June 6 to promote education and abstinence and discuss ways to combat teenage pregnancy and peer pressure.
Tickets for the show are available at Bullseye Pharmacy, Graphics Record Store and Depex Color Lab.
