Making his debut at the Jazz Café is the legendary Johnny Osborne. Any reggae lover that was around in the late 70 to early 80s can testify to how hugely popular this artist was.

 

Reggae lovers young and old who attend what will surely be an awesome concert can expect to hear some of his big, big hits from back in the day like Truths and Rights and Jah Promise and the hugely popular ‘Ice Cream Love’.

 

He also enjoyed huge hits with covers of U.S. soul tunes like “Ready Or Not” and Earth Wind and Fire’s “Reasons”.

 

Thanks to his nickname of ‘Dancehall Godfather’, Osbourne is the most in-demand vocalist for dubplates, best known for his mid-1980s dancehall reggae hits “Buddy Bye” (based on King Jammy’s Sleng Teng riddim), and “Water Pumping”.

 

This will be night will be heavy on dubplates, 80s nostalgia and sweet roots reggae vocals from one of Jamaica’s finest.

 

August 30 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm, £30 Jazz Cafe, NW1 7P For ticket information and further details visit https://ebonyonline.net/event/johnny-osbourne/
