Tonight the Mighty Diamonds played a lovely set of their old time classics in early Roots Reggae from the 1970’s 🙂 backed by beautiful Rasites who opened the show for them with strong harmonies and sweet bass rhythms they nearly stole the show 😛 but when Bunny and  Judge came onto stage they had everyone whooping and bouncing 🙂


RASITES – London Based Reggae Trio

What a lucky and awesome experience, to see such classic band.. ive loved them since i first heard them about 6 years ago. They played my favorite songs in the middle of the set ; Right Time,  Have Mercy, I need a roof, and so many sweet love songs 🙂

Days in portugal ….

Ive been in PORTUGAL with VINNIE ROSE AND THE POWER TRIO…. we are now naming the band VINNIE ROSE (band) for sake of ease …

We played 4 shows in total !  🙂

Obrigado Portugal had such beautiful surroundings!! Someone told me that Cleopatra used to go there on holiday! .. it has a natural spring that you can drink and swim in.. that leads to an estuary river.

All the acts i saw were really talented, and some of the acts were highlighting consumerism and its baddies, drugs in society and some very relaxed opinions on smoking by one very lively  Australian.

We played my favourite gig at O’Gradys 12 bar, we were playing under a veranda to a garden full of lovely  people who seemed to enjoy it very much. We had the promise of food when we wanted and were starving from a day at the most beautiful beach ‘Smugglers beach’ but despite the hunger we thoroughly enjoyed playing over a 2 hour set and wanted to fill our souls with the music. Sipping on apple juice and vodka i felt the most relaxed i have ever been!
