Live Reggae In Sacramento

On Saturday, September 1, 2012 the first full day of Reggae music came to life at the One Love, One Heart Reggae Festival taking place out at the Rio Ramaza Marina Park. The music was popping but, unfortunately, the crowds were not. Live performances began at 11:00 a.m. and continued through the day and into the night. Food vendors were plentiful but business a tad slow despite the great list of Reggae performers that deserved huge rounds of applause. The performers included a full list of talented artists including Midnite, King Hopeton, Finn, Pound Game, UpRising, IFA, United District, Reggae Bubblers, Queen Makeda, Bambu Prophets, and Jah Thunder Wisdom. The somewhat unimpressive crowd was not due to lack of talent or quality booking.

These performers all had their highlights. Some are Reggae known favorites while others newer to the scene.

Reggae Bubblers was a popular group that charmed the festival with original and cover songs. Their tones were magical and ideal for making a festival both energetic with good feelings and relaxing. UpRising, a newly formed group from Reno, brought their own special flare along with a plentitude of performing magic that is sure to make its name known as they continue to tour and produce their CDs. Performances even included IFA's group with a ten year old keyboard beauty and little "sista's" vocals.

The festival continues on Sunday, September 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and will bring out another list of impressive Reggae talent. The entrance fee is approximately $30 which is a reasonable sum for the extensive offering of live music stretching out for a full day and night. Parking is tricky and may require some walking so comfortable shoes are recommended. Smiles and good attitudes are not a requirement but are inevitably to be found in abundance. The festival has good vibes due to the nature of the performances as well as the attending crowd. (Stay tuned for further coverage of the Reggae festival.)
