Event Description

What would Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest 20 be without a performance from at least one of reggae music's most legendary vocalists and contributors? LEROY SIBBLES of the Heptones returns for a very special and intimate show at Distrikt to close out this landmark year of the festival. Ever since he started singing with the Heptones as a teenager more than 50 years ago, Leroy Sibbles' has consistently and rightly been considered one of the genre's most talented, expressive vocalists. Not only an insanely soulful singer, Sibbles' contributions to rocksteady and reggae music can be felt as a top-flight bass-player and producers. We are so excited to have this titan of Jamaican music closing out our 20th year. He will be backed by Victoria's own rocksteady powerhouse PHONOSONICS, who will be playing a special set of their own to open the night.

Playing before Sibbles for this Sunday night extravaganza is ERICA DEE LIVE. After an electric show at Lucky Bar this past fall and a highlight set at last year's festival before Culture, we knew we had to bring her back to help us round out the year in style. Singer, rapper, producer, teacher, community activist, Erica Dee has used her skills and talents to build musical community wherever she goes. Her tastes and influences are vast and her music is a reflection of that diversity. She'll be bringing some musical backup for a special live band performance that promises to be equal parts groovy and soulful. One of Vancouver's most notable dancehall selectors, DJ ABEL will be keeping booties and hips moving throughout the night in between live sets from the bands.
