-Shares Historic Moment On Stage With Dancehall Legend Shabba Ranks-
Gargamel Music, Inc. is extremely pleased to announce that Buju Banton sold out the Theater at Madison Square Garden this past Sunday May 6th. It was the third time Banton graced the world famous stage, playing to a capacity crowd of over 5,000 energetic patrons that included former New York Knick and Jamaican national Patrick Ewing.
Billed as a “Pre-Mother’s Day Driver Concert,” in recognition of Buju Banton’s latest smash single “Driver A,” the blockbuster event featured live performances by Jovi Rockwell, Khari Kill, Da’Ville, Lady Saw, Tony Matterhorn and Gargamel Music artist New Kidz, whose lively set included a brief lesson on the latest dance moves out of Jamaica.
Banton and his Shiloh Band were in prime form, running gracefully through his diverse and extensive catalog of hits-old and new, keeping the audience on their feet the entire time. Climax came when Banton brought out dancehall legend Shabba Ranks, to perform a few songs for the amped up crowd. Indeed, it was a night to remember.
