Canada’s Reggae Queen Ammoye gave fans every reason to ‘count her in’ with her flawless opening performance for Chronixx at the London Music Hall.
Opening for Chronixx as a part of his Chronology Tour, Ammoye set the tone for fans who traveled far and wide to hear the exclusive Reggae line-up in a city that does not see too many acts in the genre perform live.
Beginning her set with the lead single from her forthcoming album ‘The Light,’ fans grooved with approval as Ammoye sang “Don’t Count Me Out,” produced by Donovan Germain of Penthouse Records. With the bass line and riffs that put hands in the air, the Songstresses lyrics connected with one and all who felt ‘counted out’ at certain points in their lives. Her set continued with “The Light,” and in honor of Amy Winehouse, Ammoye and Tash Lorayne performed “Valerie” to the approval of fans. Paying homage to the King of Reggae, her rendition of “Is This Love” brought on cheers of approval. Of her performance Ammoye said “It felt great being on the stage and opening for Chronixx, Kelissa and Max Glazer. These are people I admire and respect – it felt good.”
Following Ammoye’s performance was a DJ set by Max Glazer who played Reggae anthems for young and mature. Kelissa then took the stage treating fans to Reggae, and a sweet acoustic vibe. Chronixx connected with fans musically and spiritually as he delivered hits “Smile Jamaica,” “Queen Majesty” and “Spanish Town Rocking” which left a lasting impression. After the show, Melanie, who traveled from Barrie, Ontario (approximately 300 kilometers away from the venue) shared “this was the best show I’ve ever been to. The line up with Ammoye, Max Glazer, Kelissa and Chronixx was perfect. It wasn’t long, but mih belly full!” Concert organizers echoed the same sentiment.
