The doors are at 8pm and the music starts at 10pm. This evening of reggae will start with DJ Fiji and Selector Stakweeds. This is a 21 and over show.
This venue is Sacramento’s newest state-of-the-art music venue with amazing live streaming capabilities, and excellent acoustics.
Like every great artist, Gyptian has layers and multiple facets to his artistry. There’s the conscious reggae singer who listeners first came to know on his breakthrough 2005 hit “Serious Times,” then there’s the champion lover who captivated females worldwide with his crooning on “Hold You,” the sultry island pop smash that topped charts globally in 2010. The song even caught the attention of rap superstar Nicki Minaj, who jumped on the remix.
Gyptian is musically diverse and takes the listener from dancehall to soca to global pop sounds.
Born Windel Beneto Edwards in rural St. Andrew, Jamaica, north of Kingston, Gyptian grew up singing in church with his Adventist mom by day, and at dancehall sessions organized by his Rastafarian father by night. “I didn’t grow up in a way where I’m limited,” Gyptian says. “It’s all about two things at the table, take whichever you want.”
The singer’s unique style of tying his shirt around his head and twisting his chin hair earned him the nickname Egyptian like an Egyptian Pharoah.
His single “Serious Times,” would instantly put him at the forefront of the ‘roots revival’ that was taking over Jamaican music when it was released. No fluke, a second hit, “Beautiful Lady,” followed shortly thereafter, as did a third, the heartfelt “Mama.” A debut album, MY NAME IS GYPTIAN, landed in 2006, earning him comparisons to the great Gregory Isaacs for its mixture of conscious reggae and sultry lover’s rock.
That year saw Gyptian take home the “Most Promising Entertainer” title at the 2006 International Reggae and World Music Awards in New York City, an honor he has certainly lived up to in the years since.
HASO Live produces the annual One Love One Heart Reggae Festival in Sacramento region each summer as well as other events throughout the area.
