Jah Teff & friends for NYC show
United States-based reggae artiste Jah Teff leads a list of top artistes for an event to be held at the Fish Eye Bar and Grill in Brooklyn, New York, next month.
Also billed to perform are Michael 'Lickshot' Palmer, Future Fambo, Sammy Dread, Ed Robinson, Round Head, Power Man, High Caliba, Urel Hamilton, and Bobby Lickshot. All acts will be backed by the Pana Knock Band, while music will be provided by Gamma Wayne, Faya Rama, Passa Passa Steve and DJ Anaconda from Boston.
"I have been planning this special event for a while now, and I am inviting everyone to come out and support. We have an interesting show planned as we take fans on a musical excursion that they will remember for a very long time to come," Jah Teff said.
Teff, a talented singer and songwriter, has been doing music since he lived in Montego Bay, St James. He first tasted success when he entered the Great River Talent Show in 1987 and copped the 'Best Song' for his entry Tooth Ache.
The following year, he took home the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission (JCDC) talent show.
Determined to carve his own niche and make his mark in the music business, Teff moved to Kingston where he met dancehall deejay Bounty Killer for whom he recorded his first single, Exercise, which was released on the Scare Dem label. The song became an instant hit in dancehall across Jamaica, the United Kingdom, and the United States. His sophomore single Got To Get Away also garnered success and helped to solidify his career locally.
