Reggae at the Park!

Rose left Black Uhuru after Anthem to retire to Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, where he began growing coffee. Five years later, he was back in the music business with a short-lived deal at major label RCA that resulted in one album. His longstanding and highly productive working relationship with rhythm section Sly and Robbie came to the rescue however, and Rose began releasing a series of singles and then albums with the indie reggae outfit Heartbeat Records. Visitors to the Evenings at Elings event can expect to hear great music not only from Rose, but also from local Santa Barbara reggae bands King Zero, Free Love Project, and DJ Marco. The event will be emceed by Winston the Cool Ruler from the Reggae Sound Clash and KjEE, and if you can’t make it this time, consider coming by on Friday, September 17, for Don Carlos, another reggae great and former member of Black Uhuru as well. Kids under 12 are admitted to the show free. For more information, visit
