Sound Dimension Band & The Lions This Saturday; Pre-Sale Tickets Just $25!

Sound Dimension Live FlyerHOTSHOT SOUNDS & ANGEL CITY SOUL CLUB present a monumental event for vintage Jamaican music. This Saturday September 29th, the Studio One all-star band SOUND DIMENSION reform here in Los Angeles!

This event has not taken place since their recording days in the 1960’s! The players in this band are responsible for literally thousands of recordings from the ska days through to Rocksteady and Reggae.

Some of the players provided the backing for such monumental reggae classics as “5446”, “Israelites” and “Feel Like Jumping” backing literally every artist of the 1960’s era from Marcia Griffiths, Ken Boothe, Delroy Wilson, Bob Marley, Gaylads and the list goes on. They have been members of some of the most outstanding collectives to ever come out of Jamaica including The Dynamites, The Soul Brothers, The Crystalites, The Skatalites, The Soul Vendors, The Supersonics, The Jets and The Beverly All-stars.

THE STUDIO ONE SOUND DIMENSION BAND
features the talents of:
Joe Isaacs (Original Soul Venders drummer)
Brian Atkinson (original Soul Vendors bass player)
Hux Brown (Original Soul Venders guitar)
Vin Gordon (Trombone)
Carl “Cannonball” Bryan (Saxophone)
David Madden (Trumpet)
Robbie Lyn (Organ/ Keys)

SPECIAL SUPPORTING ACT
Los Angeles’ leading Reggae sensation:
THE LIONS
with special guests Carl “Cannonball” Bryan & Vin Gordon

The band draws together a dozen or so of LA’s elite reggae and soul music makers including Deston Berry and Alex Désert, members of the legendary Ska band Hepcat, who form half of the vocal power. Malik Moore (Bullets/ Ocean 11) and Black Shakespeare round out the fearsome foursome upfront.

Other members include guitarist Dan Ubick, formerly of Breakestra and De La Soul as well as Macy Gray song co-writer and collaborator Dave Wilder on bass, plus musicians who have played with the likes of Barrington Levy, Beck, Raphael Saadiq, Big Daddy Kane and Black Eyed Peas.

Together these guys create an absolutely fierce Reggae sound unbelievably reminiscent of the original 60’s forefathers.

DJ’S FOR THE NIGHT are a trio of international hard core vinyl junkies who have continued to spread the love of the music and culture around the globe through nights like this and their vast collections including Mark Morales (Los Angeles), Tommy Far East (Japan) & The Rhythm Ruler (Berlin)

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
