Event Description:

FM949 & Bob Radio are proud to present: Boomshaka – San Diego-based reggae band Tribal Seeds and Stick Figure will co-headline the first-ever Boomshaka 2018 on February 19, Presidents’ Day, at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego –  Point Loma. Co-promoted by The Belly Up and Valley View Casino Center, the festival will also feature the music of The Original Wailers, Don Carlos, HIRIE, The Expanders and Aloha Radio.

Held in the birth month of legendary Jamaican singer-songwriter, Bob Marley, the event will honor the reggae genre by featuring top artists. Festival-goers will also experience a village-feel in the venue concourse, with handcrafted and one-of- a-kind artisan items for purchase.

Based in San Diego, rock-reggae band Tribal Seeds come at their music from a different angle, more influenced by bands like Steel Pulse and Aswad than the common touchstone of Sublime. In March 2017, Tribal Seeds won the San Diego Music Award for Artist of the Year. A new single followed, entitled “Rude Girl” which debuted among iTunes Hot Singles.

Tribal Seeds will be joined by Stick Figure. The band crafts authentic artistry from the foundation of roots-dub reggae. Additional acts in the lineup include The Original Wailers featuring Al Anderson, a long-time Bob Marley bandmate; Don Carlos, a classic and well-loved reggae artist of the legendary group Black Uhuru; and HIRIE, offering a global spiritual uplift by melding the balmy island touches of its lead singer Hirie’s beloved home — Hawaii — with a feeling of irie.
