Lester Sterling Tickling The Ivories

Lester SterlingThe day after the tour stopped in San Diego we had to wait a bit before leaving for our show in Ensenada, Mexico. During the downtime in the morning getting everything ready to cross the border at the Worldbeat Cultural Center there wqs an old piano against one of the walls in the center. Looking to keep everyone entertained Lester “Ska” Sterling found some time to tickle the ivories. It blew all of us away how good he was and it was a true honor to witness it in person.

Luckily someone was smart enough to grab a little video of this epic experience. So take a few minutes and check out this video in which you can see Joe from The Delirians and Lester playing a little ditty on the piano.

United Reggae Oakland Show Photos

United Reggae Lee Abel PhotoUnited Reggae posted a little blurb and some photos about the Oakland show.

Echoes of Kingston reverberate in California on April 27, 2012 at The Uptown, Oakland, California.

The Echoes of Kingston Tour proudly showcased the last surviving member of the original band, Lester Sterling. (Sadly, Lloyd Brevett, stand-up bass player, passed just one week later on May 3rd, 2012.) In Oakland, we also had the added pleasure of Norma Fraser’s lovely voice and spirit.

With such classic songs as A Message To You Rudy, Christine Keeler, James Bond, and Israelites, the current touring members of the band (below) did an excellent job and were well appreciated by the packed, enthusiastic crowd.

Check out the gallery below of the photos taken at the show. Check out videos from the night here.
