The 2nd annual Roxbury Rocks Music Festival took place on Saturday, July 18th in the courtyard of the RCC campus located in Roxbury, MA. For the 2nd year in a row, Roxbury Rocks brought attendees of all ages together for an afternoon of family fun, great food and free ice-cream. Did we mention free ice-cream? The Ben and Jerry's Ice-cream truck was a popular attraction in addition to the face-painters and balloon artists on hand. A main attraction at the festival was the eclectic mixture of Jazz, Soul and Reggae sounds that filled the air of the courtyard.

On Sunday June 5, 2011, the York College Performing Arts Center in Queens, NY came alive as reggae supporters & industry professionals from near and far arrived to support Mighty Crown's Reggae 4 Japan Benefit Concert. Featuring a line up of Reggae's leading performers, the sold out benefit proved to be a big success. As promoted, all artists were present including a number of surprise guest performers and audience members to provide their support to aid the humanitarian relief efforts for the victims of Japan's recent Earthquake and Tsunami.
ReggaeReflection was on hand to capture the essence of the event. Many artists spoke of this cause as near and dear to their heart since they have always received great love and support from the Japanese Reggae Community. Reggae Reflection had a chance to catch up and have interviews with new recording artist Ziggi Recado of Amsterdam, a surprise performer at the show as well as veteran artists Freddie McGregor and Maxi Priest who both have a significant presence in Japan.
Check out the ReggaeReflection video for Behind the Scenes footage of the sold out Reggae 4 Japan Benefit Concert featuring interviews with Ziggi Recado, Freddie McGregor, and Maxi Priest. Additional clips are included from Duane Stephenson, Shaggy, Tanya Stephens, Gyptian, Mr. Vegas, Gramps Morgan, Chino, Di Genius, and more.
