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.
