Kingston Class Reunion is pleased to confirm that Tiger, known for his hit singles “Bam Bam,” “Puppy Love” and “Boombastic” will be joining the original Dancehall duo, Chaka Demus & Pliers for an evening dubbed ‘Bam Bam’ in Toronto on July 2nd, 2011.
Now in its third staging, Kingston Class Reunion will give the city of Toronto an unprecedented night of entertainment as three Dancehall legends take the stage at the Phoenix Concert Theatre (410 Sherbourne Street)!
With their careers spanning more than three decades, Chaka Demus & Pliers are the first Jamaican act to place three consecutive singles in the top five of the British music charts. Attaining additional accolades such as having performed at the 2007 American Music Awards with Alicia Keys, and having their song featured in the movie soundtrack for Poetic Justice (starring Janet Jackson & Tupac Shakur) and Save the Last Dance (starring Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas), fans of three generation have a love for their music.
Tiger, whose music career began in 1978 rose to Dancehall prominence in 1986 with the release of the song “Puppy Love,” followed by the 1988 hit, “Bam Bam” and the Steely & Clevie produced “Ram Dancehall.”
Tiger has recorded with the Award winning group the Fat Boys, and has had his music featured in the movie ‘Cool Runnings.’ He was later signed to Columbia Records where he released an album featuring production from Sly & Robbie, The Brand New Heavies and a guest rap from the infamous group Tribe Called Quest.
