AT&T Reggae Solstice Rocked Towne Point Park.

The AT&T Reggae Solstice produced by Festevents, a non-profit organization, took place in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday July 9, 2011. The event was a peaceful, positive celebration with a waterfront back drop on a weather perfect day. Kenyatta Hill opened the night with a voice resembling that of his late father. Kenyatta has stepped in to complete many of his father’s songs and has now made a name for himself in the industry as a talented and likeable artist.

The Itals

The celebration continued with the legendary Itals, who throughout the decades have given us quality, well-loved music like Herbs Pirate, Smile Knotty Dread, In A Dis Ya Time, Let Dem Talk and Rasta Philosophy. 2011 marked the reunion of the original three Itals, Keith Porter, Ronnie Davis and Lloyd Ricketts (RIP), for their first tour in over 15 years. With big smiles and tight harmonies, their energy and vibes seemed to radiate throughout the crowd at the park. This iconic trio grooved and satisfied the well diverse fan base, who chanted the songs along with the Itals. Good, conscious reggae music is loved by many and comes with a message of love, oneness and peace. Clearly, we all need more of that!

In the words of the late, great Joseph Hill "I'm not afraid to hold Jah, not in any crowd".
