Moe's Alley welcomes back Jamaican Reggae Legend JUNIOR REID backed by The One Blood Band. King Schascha & The Irusalem Band + DJ Spleece support.
King Schascha- "Mr. Policeman"
The former lead singer of Black Uhuru, with chart topping hits including the monster hits One Blood and This is Why I'm Hot, Junior "One Blood" Reid is a worldwide Reggae/Dancehall Legend, universally loved and respected by fellow artists and fans. At the age of eighteen, Junior was asked to be the lead singer of Black Uhuru. While he was a member, the group was nominated twice for a Grammy Award in the Reggae category. The opening act on this February 2018 tour is Jah Warri, Sampalue and Blaak Lung.
In 1989 Reid left Black Uhuru and went solo with the release of the One Blood album, whose title track became a worldwide anthem. Reid's longevity has a lot to do with the timelessness of the song One Blood. This song's universal message is similar that of Bob Marley's One Love. The One Blood remix with Game crossed over to hip-hop and urban audiences, leading to a string of hip-hop/ reggae collaborations with the likes of Poor Righteous Teachers, Busta Rhymes, Wu-Tang Clan, Guru's Jazzmataz, Alicia Keys, Lil Wayne, Cool and Dre and Snoop Dogg.
Reid stays busy. He has a video release with Junior Reid and Casidy called I'm so Crazy. His collaboration track Ancient Love on Naz and Junior Gong's CD sold phenomenally. Other of his successful singles include State of Emergency, Love your Brother, These Streets Belongs to Me and I just Love Jamaican Chocolate. Reid owns one of the hottest nightclubs in Ki
