The 2006 South Florida Family Reggae Festival, set for Sunday, November 5, 2006, announces the addition of two exciting young singers, (Antiguan reggae sensation) Causion and Kehv (a runner up in last years song competition), to the South Florida Reggae Showcase artist line-up. They join other Showcase performers including Zyon High, Natty Remo, Evette and Sugar & Spice the Clowns. International Reggae artists Nadine Sutherland and Chrisinti will headline this year’s festival. The Festival will be held the beautiful Legion Memorial Park at NE 64th Street at NE 7th Ave in Miami, FL and is FREE for all attendees. Park gates open from 10am to 7pm.

The order of the day is to celebrate reggae and Caribbean culture as a part of the fabric of South Florida while also showcasing up and coming talent in the South Florida Reggae Showcase. This year the showcase will be sponsored by C.E.D. Entertainment. C.E.D. Entertainment has just added reggae music to their roster and hopes to use the showcase to screen future acts.

This year’s So. Florida Reggae Pioneer Award will be given to Cosmic Force Sound System. Cosmic Force has been playing since 1978, and one of the co-founders, Paul Chin Qui, will be attending and the sound will reunite for the festival. The internationally popular club/radio DJ, Waggy Tee, was one who also got his start on Cosmic Force Sound. The inaugural So. Florida Reggae Pioneer Award winner in 2005 was the late radio pioneer, Clint O’Neil.
