The Rock Shop
Connecticut’s own reggae sensation I Anbassa and The Big Takeover from New Paltz will take the stage at The Rock Shop for a special evening with opening act Rocky and the Pressures. Doors open at 7:30 PM and music starts at 8:00 PM. Admission is $10 and this event is only for those 21 & up.
I Anbassa delivers high energy, all original World Reggae grounded in roots island music, laced with rock, funk, and afro-beat. Bringing forward a fresh, new and infectious sound, they ignite on stage with intuitive hooks and bubbling rhythms that instantly get the crowd moving and singing along.
The Big Takeover is a high energy sextet, with a refreshingly upbeat, yet groove oriented, party-making approach to interpreting the Jamaican tradition of rocksteady, ska and reggae music.
Rocky and The Pressers!are a contemporary reggae band based in The Bronx, New York. The Pressers refresh the traditional genre tropes with lush vocal harmonies and flares of
American folk, jazz and soul music. Their forthcoming debut album was tracked primarily on a remote island in coastal Maine and features horns from Sharon Jones & The Dapkings and Antibalas.
