Congratulations on being selected to perform at the 2019 resurgent Showcase!
ShadeReggae's music is known as:
* “A reggae vibe is subtle on some occasions, instead you notice the meandering solo riff floating along the higher edges, and you notice the leading voice – the passion and authenticity in the delivery. As suggested, the songwriting stands tall – perhaps above the genre; those universal good vibes merely add fuel to an already big and beautiful fire". – Rebecca Cullen of Stereo Stickman
* Seriously entertaining and the popular choice of cover songs and audiences alike.
* Extremely flexible, booking a wide variety of events.
* Annually presenting a season of four shows at various venues.
* A regional organization serving the communities of southeast Atlanta and beyond.
As well as presenting our own events, we compete annually to ensure our standard of playing is consistently high, without compromising our reputation for innovation and performing exciting contemporary music.
We invite you to partner with the ShadeReggae (SR) as a sponsor for this season.
