Jah Mason in OZ

Well what can I say. This is a really great turn of events. In recent years Australia has been graced with the Skatalites, Ernest Ranglin, Gladiators, Dub Syndicate, Luciano, Ricky Trooper, LKJ, Ranking Joe, Lloyd Parkes and Jnr Gong to name a few. Now we're getting contemporary artists like Spragga Benz & Jah Mason. A huge thanks to the Reggae Town Festival, who I think organised getting the man out here, and to all the sounds that have organised gigs around Australia's capital cities. Sydney's show will be with Firehouse and Basslines.
