Old Princeton Landing in Half Moon Bay — 21+ Doors at 8 p.m.
Come enjoy a night of reggae with Montego Bay, Jamaica’s very own Culture Canute and his Bay Area friends: The Rockstone Players & Dub FX!
International recording artist Culture Canute was born Canute Davis in Montego Bay, Jamaica. After more than two decades of performing in Jamaica and around the Caribbean, he has relocated to San Francisco, CA. In California, he has lent his vocals to Sister I-Live & The Elevation and Creation. He has performed in San Francisco on bills with Eek-A-Mouse and other international artists.
The Rockstone Players formed in San Francisco in 2006, releasing their debut album “One For Your Mind” on Rockstone Records in 2007. In 2009, they began backing up Culture Canute. Canute’s latest album will be released on Rockstone Records in the summer of 2011 with The Rockstone Players as his band.
As a child I grew up in the city of Montego Bay. All of my life I have been a fine visual artist. As a youngster I was moved by this simple but moving music from the era of rocksteady, ska and reggae. My first band was Talent, Inc. This started off my international career singing and playing with bands all over the world. Bands that I have sang lead vocals and played lead guitar with throughout the years include: Sister I-Live & the Evelation, Creation, Pan Extascy, Steel & Ivory, Caribbean Rhythm, Tropical Vibration, Jungle Apartz & opening up for Eek-A-Mouse and other big named artists. Now I give to you my own original band: CULTURE CANUTE & THE ROCKSTONE PLAYERS.
Culture Canute is backed by The Rockstone Players:
Mateo Peligroso- lead guitar & backing vocals
Rob Freeland- bass
Drew Miller or Phil Brown- drums
Juan Nebulla Productions & Rockstone Records
