Reggae And Soul Music Legends In Concert At B.A.M. On Thanksgiving Weekend, November 27, 2009, New York

As New Yorkers prepare for yet another Thanksgiving, the creative folks of Jammins Entertainment family have announced their presentation of two music-filled holiday treats — the classic Reggae Legends and Soul Legends in Concert Series, which are set to be celebrations of nostalgia and the enduring talent of iconic artists whose work span generations.
These exceptional concerts of historical value will be held at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music – B.A.M., downtown Brooklyn on Friday, November 27 and on Saturday, November 28, 2009. Both shows start at 7:00 p.m.    
The show on November 27 will spotlight the consistent ambassadors of reggae — Third World ; reggae-lover’s-rock giant — Gregory Isaacs; 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;” Inner Circle’s “Bad Boys” and “Sweat (A La La La La Long);” Third World’s “Try Jah Love” and “96 Degrees;” and Marcia Griffiths’ “Electric Slide” and “I Shall Sing” — just to name a few of these artists’ all-time hits.
The second show, scheduled for Saturday, November 28, will feature three of soul’s standard-setting artists and groups – The Temptation Review featuring Dennis Edwards; The Original Manhattans featuring Gerald Alston and Blue Lovet; and Rose Royce.  These enduring groups hardly need any introduction, given their role in defining, advancing and influencing the quality of R&B 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 Temptation’s “My Girl” and “Since I Lost My Baby;” The Manhattans’ “Kiss and Say Good Bye” and “It Feels So Good To Be Loved So Bad;” and Rose Royce’s “Car Wash” and “I Wanna Get Next To You.” 
According to managing director of Jammins, George Crooks, “This series will feature some of the most distinctive, standard-setting artists alive, as they showcase their expansive repertoire and style to the delight of music lovers in the tri state area.”  
And as anyone who has experienced a live performance of either one of the above artists/groups would know, these crooners all have something in common – unquestionable dedication to their craft, which they each demonstrate on every stage graced by the lot.
