Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review
WWW, October 2007 - After doing a little free style toasting sound check in the 1970's, the check became a tune, yes even one of Mikey Dread's classics!
This video records Mikey Dread as he performs with the Matic Horns. Before the music starts, though, the "Dread at the Controls" has a declaration to make. Don't worry about the security guards, feel free to light up when you can!
The crowd cheers, and the drums give a roll to signal the start of the music. The vibrant band plays an up-tempo version of Mikey's classic "Barber Saloon". The horn section does a wonderful job, Mikey Dread chants to the (French) audience, the vibe is right!
Originally, the tune came into existence after Mikey Dread doing a Sound Check at King Tubby's. But the music and words turned out to form a perfect combination and so the tune became a classic.
