Black Uhuru is a roots reggae group, first formed over 50 years ago in Kingston, Jamaica. Although going through numerous lead singers and musicians they have remained to be one of the most recognized and prolific reggae bands, and the first to win a Grammy. Derrick “Duckie” Simpson is the founder and leader of the group.

Dave Noonan’s Green Island is a collective of some of the Pioneer Valley's best musicians. The band plays a wide variety of music such as reggae, ska, Afrobeat, jazz and funk.

Belgium-born Tina Sureda Castello aka ONESTY began writing music at the age of 8. As a teenager, she was a fixture in the underground hip hop, reggae, dub and dancehall scenes in Antwerp before focusing her attentions solely on reggae.

Vibesman's Jerk Shack will be serving tacos during the show! Simple yet delicious food with an island twist, for omnivores and herbivores alike.

Review: /Onesty - New York BB King Club 09/2016

“In typical Reggae style the audience swelled as the evening progressed which is unfortunate if they missed the early warm opening act, a young lady by the name of Onesty whose name should be remembered. Currently on tour with Black Uhuru, the Reggae songstress had a captivating flow and did an amazing job as she gently lead an anxious audience eager for the main act, right into the palm of her hands. A true singer with a beautiful voice, Onesty belted out several selections intermittently chatting lightly in-between songs bringing focus to her message. Her set totally complemented what was to come and in appreciation, the audience responded with passionate applause. See more at:
