Jammins Entertainment family takes great pleasure in presenting the Reggae Legends and Soul Legends Concert Series – a celebration of nostalgia and enduring talents. These concerts will be held on Thanksgiving Weekend at the prestigious and landmark venue, Brooklyn Academy of Music – BAM, in Brooklyn, New York.  
The exceptional concerts in this series will feature some of the most distinctive, standard-setting artists as they showcase their repertoire and style to the delight of music lovers in the tri state area.  The first show is scheduled for Friday, November 27, 2009 at 7 p.m., spotlighting the innovative ambassadors of reggae — Third World; “reggae-lover’s-rock” giant — Gregory Isaacs; the foundational messengers of reggae — Inner Circle; and the empress of reggae – Marcia Griffiths.  Truly, there are very few professional disc jockeys without an album/CD of these artists; and likewise it would be difficult to find any bona fide lover of reggae who can truthfully say that he/she never heard Gregory Isaacs “Night Nurse,”  and “Cool Ruler;” or Inner Circle’s “Bad Boys,” and “Sweat (A La La La La Long);” Third World’s “Try Jah Love,” and “96 Degrees;” or Marcia Griffiths’ “Electric Slide,” and “I Shall Sing.”
The second show is scheduled for Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 7:30 p.m., featuring three of soul’s all-time, standard-setting artists and groups – The Temptation Review featuring Dennis Edwards;  The Original Manhattans featuring Gerald Alston along with Blue Lovett and singing the anthem of the 70’s Rose Royce.  These enduring groups hardly need any introduction, given their role in defining, advancing and influencing the quality of soul and other American genres of music over the last 40-plus years.  It would be difficult to find any man or woman above 18 who can truthfully say that he/she never heard The Temptations’ “My Girl,” and “Since I Lost My Baby;” or The Manhattan’s “Kiss And Say Good Bye,” and “It Feels So Good To Be Loved So Bad,” or Rose Royce’s “Car Wash, and I Wanna Get Next To You.” 
And anyone who has experienced a live performance of either one of the above knows that these artists all have something in common – perfection, in terms of the quality of the music and the dedication of each artist and band member to their craft.
