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.
We are pleased to announce that TS Heavyweight Dub will be starting a monthly residency at one of Chicago’s hippest little venues, The Whistler (2421 N. Milwaukee Ave.), starting in May. Our goal is to make some great music and create a monthly event where fans of Dub Reggae can coalesce in Chicago. We will have special guests joining us so stay tuned. We kick off on Wed, May 21, then Wed June 18. Starting in July we will be at The Whistler every 3rd Thursday of the month. Mark your calendars!
Join us this Sunday 2/9/14 at The Whistler as Heavyweight Dub makes their debut at this fine establishment! Roy McGrath, Chris Merrill, and Brian Citro will be making their debut with the band.
