Thereafter, they carried on their ambassadorial reggae duties to Athens, Greece where memorable moments weren’t only for fans, but for the band itself as its members delighted in a 360 degree moment by sharing the stage with sold-out audiences in Athens, Greece and at the Hollywood Bowl with Damian Marley.

The band went on to perform in Brooklyn, NY and Hartford, CT- two cities that even presented them with keys. “It was a joy to touch the hearts of so many fans over the years and in this 46 years journey. It was beautiful to meet the sons and daughter of our core fans from the 70’s and 80’s who are now festival and concert goers. We give thanks for it all.” said the rep.

Debuting at #3 on Billboard Reggae Chart, ‘ More Work to Be Done’, featuring Chronixx, Tarrus Riley, Busy Signal, Pressure Busspipe, Tessanne Chin and Damian “Jr Gong” Marley is available on CD, cassette tape and vinyl via the band’s website and select retail outlets as well as on all digital platforms worldwide.

On October 1st, fans of reggae in New York City will be treated to a one of a kind event, when reggae sensation, Tarrus Riley graces the stage of the world renowned SOBs music venue where he’ll present music off his ‘Blending Life’s Experiences Musically’ EP.

Although listening sessions are a common occurrence in the music realm, Riley who recently delivered to rave reviews from both fans and music industry insiders, an unforgettable musical experience in his homeland of Jamaica, will replicate the latter in New York, according to his team at Destine Media. Simply and expertly, Tarrus replaced the typical album listening affair with a live band experience. “People can expect to have an up close and personal BLEM experience with Tarrus, who will be performing in the famous SOBs for the first time. This event with limited capacity will be a special event for NY,” said his publicist, Ronnie Tomlinson.

In an added bonus and to keep the night’s memories alive, the ticketed admission will include a copy of the coveted EP. Produced by Izy Beats, B.L.E.M (Blending Life’s Experiences Musically) offers a diverse offering of six songs inspired by the crooner’s personal situations.

“I’ve been in one of these songs at some point in my life,” Tarrus recently said.

Doors Open at 7pm.

International reggae crooner Maxi Priest has released his latest album, It All Comes Back To Love, out now via S-Curve Records/BMG. Fans can stream or purchase the album, here. Prior to the release of the album, which was produced entirely by Jamaican dancehall artist, Shaggy, Maxi Priest shared three singles: “AnythingYouWant (feat. Estelle, Anthony Hamilton, Shaggy),” “It’s A SummerVibe (feat. Bounty Killer & Che Sav),” and “I’m Alright (feat. Shaggy).”

The album has been entirely produced by Shaggy.

A media release sent to Ebuzztt.com notes that only a handful of singers succeed in transcending their genre without losing the essence of who they are. It goes on to explain that Maxi Priest is one of those artists whose own unique vision has led him to tremendous global success, being the first reggae artist to have a No. 1 hit worldwide, including the U.S. Billboard charts. Maxi Priest performed in Trinidad and Tobago earlier this year at the Redemption concert event which also featured the likes of Christopher Martin, Romain Virgo and the legendary Beres Hammond.

Maxi Priest is the first British-born singer to graduate from the London reggae sound-system Saxon Studio International, introducing the sound of lovers’ rock to a global audience. Before joining Saxon, Maxi embraced Rastafari and served an apprenticeship with South London soundsystem Negus Negast and the legendary Jah Shaka. Throughout his entire career, Maxi has adhered to the principles of his faith by making conscious music of all kinds.
