On one of the coldest nights in Michigan, there was one place that was extremely hot. the Blind Pig was on fire after an explosive performance by reggae sensation, Turbulence. Just under 250 people turned out in sub zero weather to see and hear one of reggae's most dramatic entertainers.
The show started out with local performances from King Jazzy and from all acounts King Jazzy is destined for super stardom. His cultural and uplifting lyrics had the crowd screaming for more. King Jazzy has matured into a wonderful artist and we wish him all the best in the future.
Turbulence wasted no time hitting the stage. He talked about the babylon system and his hatred for police, because in his words, "them want stop the ganja". His set lasted for almost a hour and a half and he did everything from freedom songs to stopping the hatred between whites and black. His biggest hit to date "Notorius" received a tremendous forward, so huge that he had to "pull-up" many times.
Big up to Turbulence for a wonderful show. Also special big-ups to demola for keeping the reggae light burning. Special big up to Zuma Revolution our own local band which did a wonderful job backing Turbulence.
Hope to see every one next year. Especially those form Detroit who failed to make the trip.
