Hey, Mon! It’s the Easy Star All-Stars, April 13 at Engine Room

Check this out, recording artists Easy Star All-Stars will be making a stop in Tallahassee on Tuesday, April 13, 2010, at Engine Room (809 Railroad Ave.; Tel: 850-222-8090). This is one of three Florida appearances on the group’s Spring Tour 2010 (April 10 is Ybor City and April 12 is Orlando) which includes international dates, so feel lucky Tallahassee.

These are the days when I wished I lived in Tallahassee because honestly, the music scene is livelier than in my new community in Southwest Florida (which a Miami Herald columnists compared to Del Boca Vista of Seinfeld fame). Anyway…

Here are quick deets on Easy Star All-Stars and their April 13 Tallahassee appearance:

  • They put a fresh, reggae spin on pop and rock classics;
  • The group's 2003 album, Dub Side of the Moon, was a reggae re-vision of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and sold 90,000 copies, making it one of the most successful reggae albums of the 21st century;
  • They're so cool that even "The Mouse" is interested. With a release date of June 8, 2010, Easy Star All-Stars is one of several reggae artists on the CD by Walt Disney Records called The Disney Reggae Club. Easy Star All-Stars sing a remake of “Ev'rybody Wants to be a Cat (from the animated flick, The Aristocats). Other artists on the album include UB40 and Ziggy Marley. They're definitely in good company;
  • While I haven't seen the band perform in person, I’ve checked out some of their videos and they just look like fun;
  • Spiritual Rez, the reggae-funk band will open for the headliners;
  • Admission for the event is $12. Purchase your tickets in advance online here.
Dress code of note: Engine Room does NOT permit high heels so ladies, don’t cause a scene and leave the heels at home (or in the car).

Check out their music on the Easy Star All-Stars MySpace page or website.

Now go be jammin’ April 13 with Easy Star All-Stars!
