Sat May 29th: Reggaebomb ft Foundation Sound @ Tivoli de Helling

(from the tivoli site:) A Reggae Bomb is een eerbetoon aan de authentieke reggae: rootsreggae, ska, rocksteady en vroege dancehall. Verwacht oude klassiekers en de nieuwste hits - voor modieuze, aan r&b en hiphop verwante dancehall is echter geen plaats! Keurmeesters zijn resident-dj's Don Arco, Sideburn Sound, Souljah, Ivoryman & Skank Around Sound. En vanavond verwelkomt het vaste team een special guest: Foundation Sound. Dit soundsystem, in 2000 heropgericht door Zebulon is het roodgoudgroene thuis van dj’s als Gusto, Montana, Norman B & Junior Gun. The ruling sound outta The Netherlands!

Fri June 11, 2010: Richie Spice @ Tivoli Oudegracht, Utrecht

 from the tivoli site:
Reggaezanger Richie Spice is afkomstig uit Kingston (Jamaica), de stad waar de helft van de inwoners reggaezanger is en de andere helft producer of dj. Zoals bijvoorbeeld de broers van Richie: dj Snatcher Dogg, zanger Spanner Banner en producer Pliers, bekend van Chakademus & Pliers. Richie Spice begon zijn muzikale carrière als openingsact voor zijn broers, maar was al snel klaar voor de hoofdrol. Samen met zijn band mengt hij jarenzeventigreggae met dancehall en rap tot een, eh, kruidig geheel. En ondanks zijn roem vergeet hij zijn afkomst niet, vandaar ook de titel van zijn nieuwe cd: Street Life!
