TS Heavyweight Dub – “Tribute to Jamaican Jazz Legends” at the Green Mill! 1/17/14

green_mill_poster_smallJoin us on Friday, January 17, 2014 for an extremely rare event! Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub will be paying tribute to the legendary Jamaican jazz musicians that created Ska, Rocksteady, and Reggae music. Musicians such as Tommy McCook, Jackie Mittoo, Ernest Ranglin, Bobby Ellis, Cedric “IM” Brooks, and many others, are not household names like Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Jimmy Cliff, but if not for them we would not have the incredibly rich heritage of Jamaican music that we have today. Most people don’t realize that this music was created by Jamaicans who themselves were great jazz musicians inspired by Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington etc! It’s rare that these musicians get credit and recognition for their art but we are going to pay our respect to them on this night. It’s also not often that you will see a show like this at the historic Green Mill Lounge either, so come out and celebrate this great music with us! Get there early if you want a seat because we expect the joint to be packed! Visit the Facebook event page here.

Echo Beach Radio Broadcast from Chicago – 11/15/13

The “Turntable Terrorist” Terry C. was kind enough to invite me to sit in on his weekly Dub show here in Chicago. I had a great time spinning Dub tracks and chatting with Terry. Echo Beach is on WLUW 88.7 FM in Chicago from 2:00-4:00am every Thursday night/Friday morning, but you can always check out the podcasts on Mixcloud if you’re not a night owl.
