Celebrate Black History Month
Come celebrate Black History Month with one of largest names in the reggae scene. Roots reggae rockers, Midnite, from St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands, return to the Garden Island.
Midnight in Concert on Kaua’i
The concert will be on Feb. 2 at the Kuhio Lounge in the Aston Aloha Hotel in Kapaa. Midnite has been coming to the Hawaiian Islands for over 6 years and they have performed Kauai many
times, the last being at the One Love Gardens for over 800 people. Midnite is considered to be one of the most popular reggae bands touring today and has a loyal following in the reggae and
Rastafarian movement. Midnite is known to play real roots reggae music which originally came from Jamaica. Not only do they preach Rastafarian life in their music, they live it. They are true
Rastafarians who practice Vegetarianism and hold to strict diets for spiritual and health reasons. Their songs are filled with deep and political issues regarding the Rastafarian movement and the
struggles we all face in today’s modern world.
Midnite’s profound and innovative lyrics are sincere and deeply rooted, representing their culture. Their CD recordings and live performances have reggae and non reggae listeners open to the messages they bring. Midnite explodes in live performances with sets that often exceed 3
hours. Their vigorous, weighty sound, driven by the punchy bass lines creates a vibe that penetrates straight to the heart. These epic musical communions have earned Midnite
an enormous following throughout the roots community.
Opening guests for the concert will be Kauai’s favourite reggae band, The Lambsbread. Bringing pure fyah to the stage, lead singer Kaya delivers a message of upliftment and positivity to
the crowd. Adding her angelic voice and sweet harmonies to the music is female vocalist for the Lambsbread, Nadia. On stage they are backed by the Fyah Red Band which consists of some of the top musicians in the Hawaii reggae scene. The group has had several international hits, starting with their first single from Zion High Records “Love in the House” 2004. The tune was released on 7in vinyl from Kingston, Jamaica, and the single was heard worldwide. The video for the tune has reached half a million views on YouTube and is watched by fans from Brazil, France, Netherlands, Germany, US, Hawaii and more. Their next hit came with the tune “Mountain Top” featuring Prezident Brown, released by Lustre Kings 2006. Still in heavy rotation on Hawaii radio, this tune came out on the Red Razor compilation and spent 3 months in
the top 50 selling reggae albums at Itunes peaking at # 8.
