Tarrus Riley’s Revenge – November 16th, 2007 , New York


Brooklyn, NY, October 19, 2007: After being shut down by the New York City Fire Department in August, one of Reggae’s most prolific young soldiers is plotting to invade the Big Apple’s grittiest borough to seek retribution. On November 16th, Johnny Wonder and the Gaza Strip will once again unleash this roots Reggae beast on the Brooklyn massive at Albany Manor with the “Revenge of Tarrus Riley.”

Unfazed by the system, Tarrus Riley plans to charge into Brooklyn’s vibrant underground with immensely popular tunes from his debut album Parables like ‘Stay With You,’ ‘Beware,’ ‘System Set,’ ‘Lion Paw,’ and the smash hit ‘She’s Royal,’ which spent 9 weeks at the top of New York’s reggae charts. With staple NY sounds Massive B, Steelie Bashment, Natural Mystik, Majah Hype, and Gully Squad and hosts Steve Austin and DJ Elly of Red Hot Radio setting the speed, the promoters are anticipating another ‘sell-off’ performance.

“The August show ‘sell-off’ ‘till the fire department had to shut it down,” recalls Johnny Wonder. “This time around we are bringing Tarrus back to the Brooklyn garrison, to one of the original BK venues—Albany Manor. Bigger venue, more people…trust me, this show is nearly sold out—sell-off!”

Tickets for the ‘Revenge of Tarrus Riley’ on November 16th at Albany Manor in Brooklyn are $25 in advance. Tickets can be purchased at Faye & Kings Restaurant and Super Power Records in Brooklyn, and Genesis One Restaurant in Queens.
