MESSENGER SOUND SYSTEM: EARL SIXTEEN

23:00 - 03:00

RESCHEDULED DATE: Jamaican legend Earl Sixteen brings a rare special guest live show to Messenger, with resident MC Afrikan Simba in support as usual.   His song Natural Roots (above) is probably the most-played record at Messenger and a big one for all regulars.  Roots reggae rocking – foundation tune, fresh dubs, vibes alive, rockers, steppers, rub-a-dub. Scotland’s original [and biggest] roots and culture rasta reggae sound system, Messenger has been spreading the word on their own custom built bass-heavy rig since 1987, with a flame burning brighter than ever today.
