Echoes of Kingston Tour Wows Crowds, See What Everyone is Talking About
The Echoes of Kingston Tour continues to roll up the coast over the next week.

So far featured support includes The Amalgamated, The Revivers, The Impalers and The Bohunks.

The tour rolls into Fresno this coming Friday to support a 25th anniversary celebration for Let’s Go Bowling even! How is that for a blessed talent pool. It’s a non-stop JA love affair at every stop.
Want to see what everyone is talking about? The third stop landed in Los Angeles at the Airliner club on Saturday night. If you didn’t make it out to see the bands drop some of the tightest reggae ever then just take a deep breath and watch the videos below. You might be overwhelmed with tears at the beauty of it. Tissues optional.
Queen P backed by The Delirians drop a medley of Rocksteady hits including “Girl (Boy) I’ve Got a Date” by Alton Ellis, “Dont Stay Away” and “Perfidia” by Phyllis Dillon. Thank you to whoever took this video. Have any more?
The Impalers come out swinging with 3 hits form the hip of soul reggae to make you shimmy and shake.
