Luciano BB Kings

8/20/15 – Luciano gave an amazing performance this past Thursday at Manhattan’s renown hot spot, BB King’s Blues Club. It was only inevitable that the Messenjah would give his all to his faithful audience. Much has changed since his debut release of “Ebony and Ivory” on the Aquarius Label.

The highly commended performance was laced with his highly acclimated catalog. The Messenjah set took us down memory lane back to the year 1994 when “One Way Ticket” rang out. Concentrating on his repertoire of conscious reggae, Luciano “Sweep Over My Soul” was performed and is always a crowd pleaser.

The BB King Blues Club provided an intimate setting for The Messenjah and allowed for the ultimate supper club vibe. Luciano is as cool, calm, and collective off stage as well as on. His backing band provided the highly electric performance in tune and full of raw energy. Luciano was feeding off the vibe of the audience and danced frantically as his dreads twirled and twined during his near two hour performance. His brother being an elder in the Episcopal Church, his show even included a prayer and “Its Me Again Jah” was performed from bended knee. With the spirit with him his encore song was “Lord Give Me Strength”. The band struck up a cord and all endured pugnacious drumming and grounding exuberant bass.

The set’s finale was performed and even though crowd howled and wailed for one more song due to time restraints, Luciano was unable to fulfill their requests. In the near future, The Messenjah will sing a whole heap of songs in his return.
