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 🙂
