Join us tonight on the Roosevelt Collection plaza as we all groove to the sounds of Akasha, one of Chicago’s leading reggae bands. The band will kick off at 5:30, and will play through 7:30, a perfect opportunity to start your weekend right. Might as well roll right into a screening of Jurassic World at the ShowPlace ICON, but get your tickets soon, showings are selling out.
From their website: “Stylistically, Akasha sounds like they stepped out of a 1972 session at Studio One. Their reggae is powerfully authentic but also is accessible to the contemporary ear. Akasha’s distinct approach is refreshing and earnest. They are courageously trailblazing a path for a new generation to receive the gifts of the Jamaican musical canon. The Akasha sound gives birth to an unmistakable variety of heavy, raw grooves reminiscent of The Skatalites, The Maytals, Desmond Dekker and The Wailers.
