The Slackers saxman Dave Hillyard continues his reggae/ska exploits with the Rocksteady 7, a contemporary American-influenced take on the "Jamaican Jazz” sound of decades past. Hillyard is joined by, among others, percussionist Larry Mcdonald, who contributed his distinctive sound to several crucial Bob Marley cuts and classic reggae tracks such as “Cherry Oh Baby,” “Funky Kingston,” and “Rivers of Babylon.” Hillyard says: “I picked the musicians for their personal style. I want them to be themselves and make a soup. Reggae producer & keyboardist Roger Rivas is back with his roster of A1 musicians. Featuring Lino Trujillo (Hepcat), Zac Pike (Dynamic Pressure), Eric Crucial (The Steady 45s), Krees Borbon (The Capsouls), & Chris Brennan (The Aggrolites). The Roger Rivas Allstars are taking you back to the sounds of early Jamaica. A serious gathering of reggae specialists not to be missed! The show is rounded out with the San Gabriel Valley’s very own Jackie Mendez, who contributes her take on period style reggae and soul.
