CHRONIXX & THE ZINCFENCE REDEMPTION AT ROCKHOUSE HOTEL OUTDOOR ACOUSTIC CONCERT SERIES
Rockhouse Hotel & Spa and Pushcart Restaurant in Negril are pleased to announce the third installment of their monthly outdoor, acoustic, concert series. Each month, Rockhouse honors Jamaica's rich musical tradition by presenting important artists spanning the decades and genres of ska, reggae, and dancehall. The series showcases each artist with an intimate and elegant acoustic campfire performance taking place on the cliffs overlooking the Negril's beautiful Pristine Cove. Each installment of the series features international DJ / selector talent and is broadcast live on Radio Lily, the online radio station of Rockhouse's New York City sister property, the ultra-popular Miss Lily's restaurant.
Past presentations featured iconic Jamaican artists including Mr. Vegas, Lexxus, Tifa, and Johnny Osbourne. This third presentation of the series features a live performance by current, Jamaican dancehall super-sensation, Chronixx with The Zincfence Redemption Band.
Caribbean lifestyle website Largeup.com had this to say about the young artist, "At the young age of 20 he is spearheading a new reggae revival, heavy on unwavering positivity and a live-band sound amidst a Jamaican music scene overrun with synth-heavy dancehall riddims and explicit lyrics. The result has been described by Island Records founder Chris Blackwell as "really great" and is altering the Jamaican music scene in a major way."
Serving to spotlight the many facets of Jamaican music, each installment of this series "tuns up" after the live performance with a DJ set by the world-renowned Brooklyn DJ, Max Glazer of the Federation Sound System. Glazer has been the official tour DJ for countless artists including Rihanna, Sean Paul, Wayne Wonder, and Cham and the early mix CDs he has produced for artists including Vybz Kartel have played an integral part in boosting many artists' careers, internationally.
A portion of all proceeds from the event series goes to the Rockhouse Foundation, the hotel's non-profit organization that has invested over US $2,000,000 in building and refurbishing public schools and libraries in Western Jamaica.
