Enter to win four tickets ($120 value) to Don Carlos at Moe’s Alley on Friday, April 6, 2018. The show starts at 9 p.m. This is a 21+ show.
Moe’s Alley presents Don Carlos & The Dub Vision Band. Special guests Sista Kat & DJ Spleece support.
Don Carlos started his singing career in 1965 in conjunction with other artists and quickly moved on to creating solo singles. In 1972, Don moved into a trio as one of the original contributors of Black Uhuru, alongside other founding members, Garth Dennis who later went on to joining the Wailing Souls, and Derrick Ducky Simpson. Two years after the trio’s groundbreaking debut, the group split in different directions and Don continued to pursue a solo career.
During the eighties, Don was a popular artist in the Dance Hall scene with numerous top ten hits between 1982 – 1985, such as: Late Night Blues, Nice Time Tonight, Dice Cup, Hog & Goat, I’m Not Getting Crazy, Fight Fight Fight, Traveling, Laser Beam, Johnny Big Mouth and Spread Out. Don is still churning out solid, melodic roots reggae. Other titles in his rich catalogue include Roots and Culture, Pure Gold, Spread Out, Plantation, Slow Down Vol.3, Prophecy, Firehouse Clash, Ras Portraits, Head to Head, Jah Light, Live in San Francisco (2002), and Special Edition to name a few.
There’s an old saying in the music industry that claims: What goes around, comes back around. In Don’s case, a request from Duckie for Don to continue his former role as lead vocalist in a rejuvenated Black Uhuru reunion resulted in another strong Black Uhuru album – Now. 1989 marked the reunion of the original vocal trio with Don, Garth and Duckie. After six years- 1989-1994 – and four albums, singing lead for Black Uhuru in the studio, and on the road, Don again went back to his solo career. His other titles with Black Uhuru include Mystical Truths, Iron Storm and Strong. All of these four albums are classics with Don up front on lead vocals. In addition, each of four titles were nominated for Grammy Awards.
