Ask yourself…

eric_garnerIf a gang of Black men jumped a police officer and strangled him to death for no apparent reason, you could be damned sure that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM would rot in prison for life or close to it. Not just the one who strangled the cop, but every single person that touched the cop, the person waiting in the car, the person that wandered on the scene and didn’t do anything to stop it. Not only that, you could be damned sure that the families of the Black men would all be continually hounded and harassed for years. They would be pulled over, evicted from housing, arrested for this and that. Yet all of these cops that took part in this murder got off scot-free, not just Pantaleo, and that’s not even addressing the EMT’s who didn’t do their jobs. A miscarriage of justice is a vast understatement in the case of ‪#‎EricGarner‬.‪#‎ChokeTheSystem‬.

The Dub Connection Presents “Tribute to Style Scott” with Heavyweight Dub

style_scott_fb_banner

The Reggae community lost one it’s greatest drummers on October 9, 2014 when Lincoln “Style” Scott was murdered in his home in Jamaica. Style, a member of Roots Radics, was one of my biggest influences as a Reggae drummer. We are still hurting from this senseless killing. We will pay tribute to Style on Thursday, Dec. 18 at our monthly “Dub Connection” gig at the Whistler in Chicago. We will play originals as well as some of the legendary tracks that Style recorded. Style Scott is gone but NOT forgotten.

I’m pleased to announce that our Dub Connection series at The Whistler has been extended at least through May 2015. Thanks to all who’ve come out to support the music! Please help us spread the word, and those that haven’t been yet – what are you waiting for? Next one is 11/20 – we’ll celebrate the sound of the Trombone in Jamaican music and pay tribute to cats like Don Drummond, Vin Gordon, Rico Rodriguez and Nambo Robinson, featuring our own badass Trombonist Matthew Davis and special guest Andrew Zelm of the drastics and Lowdown Brass Band. Thanks to Billy, Eric, Charles, and the whole staff at the Whistler.
