The crowd hung on every word and beat put down by Max Glazer as he led the audience through samples of the reggae greats, before introducing Kelissa. A native of St. Andrew, Jamaica, Kelissa is known for her positive lyrics that reflect the experiences of her life. She sang with power and energy that the crowd picked up on and fed off of. Chronixx hit the stage and continued to lift the crowd with his positive words. Coming off a string of sold out shows, I don’t imagine the Hudson Valley disappointed.
The Bearsville Theater will host a few other highly anticipated reggae shows this summer. Jesse Royal stops by July 7, and Maxi Priest will play the theater August 11.
