An up close and personal Reggae Get Together in Miami 2/15

Photos and recap by EmpressK for


While in Miami to cover the annual 9Mile Music Festival on Valentine’s Day weekend, I along with many other Reggae festival attendees had one more chance to celebrate another great evening of live Reggae music at the gathering known at The Get Together.  On Sunday evening, House of Marley and Ghetto Youths International jointly presented a showcase of emerging talent all backed by live bands at the small and intimate venue, The Stage, located in downtown Miami.  Advertised artists No-maddz, Kabaka Pyramid, Jo Mersa and Stephen Marley all backed by their own bands gave wonderful performances.  Quite a few unannounced artists took the stage as well to make this a most memorable evening including Jesse Royal who performed Modern Day Judas with Jo Mersa.

Stephen Marley performed an opening song and then had the pleasure of introducing the debut performance of his nephew Skip Marley (son of Cedella). Spragga BenzDetermineJulian Marley, and Damian Marley made guest appearances as well.  A surprise introduction of Cedella Marley during the final group finale of Could you be Loved capped off a spectacular weekend of uplifting Reggae Music in Miami. 

We would like to give a special shout out to Lance O of Kulcha Shok Music for accommodating all of the media who covered the event at The Get Together.
