Releasing First Installment of Live Series Recordings
The High Noon Saloon will host the 5th annual Bob Marley Birthday Bash on Saturday, February 2, 2013, 9:30 pm. This will be an 18+ show.
Version 5.0 will feature two sets by Madison’s hard roots rock reggae ambassadors Natty Nation.
Bob Marley’s musical and cultural influences have engendered reggae’s explosive growth. His brilliant blend of the hypnotic danceable music and messages of peace and justice established reggae as an enduring popular musical genre. February 6th marks his 68th birthday.
Joining Natty Nation is Tropical Riddims Sound System. DJ’s FRP and JAM host WORT-FM’s popular Saturday reggae radio show (Noon-2pm). They warm up the gathering with a full array of Bob Marley’s music spiced up with roots, rock steady, ska, conscious dancehall, dub & more.
Natty Nation will also be celebrating the release of the first installment of their fanclub series with the recording of their 2012 performance at the UW Memorial Union Terrace on January 29th. These fanclub recordings are professionally recorded, mixed and mastered in both standard stereo and 5.1 Surround by Jim Newhouser of Studio Earth Remote Recordings. The track “Cease Fire” can be previewed, and the full 2+ hour show can be pre-ordered for half price ($5) at their Bandcamp site.
