2006 THIRD-WORLD REGGAE FESTIVAL LINEUP
   

SEEFARI

 

Internationally acclaimed reggae artist Tom "SEEFARI" Carroll has performed in every Dayton Third world reggae Festival since he opened the first festival in 1988. The well-travelled SEEFARI has headlined major reggae festivals across the USA including four years as a headliner on the National Bob Marley Festival Tour.

JAH ROOTS

 

Venice Cafe: The opening act was Jah Roots. These people are so unique when it comes to their style. The music is most definitely reggae, although their influences are so interesting: add a little bit of dancehall, lovers rock and jam band. Then, add a whole bunch of roots rock and shake it just so. Then, maybe you could possibly start to comprehend the phenomenon that is Jah Roots.
