Rockin' The River with The Dubplates--July 28th

What? Can this be true? The Dubplates are back?! Yup, you heard that right. The Dubplates are back and better than ever, but this time at Rockin' The River at Riverfront Park this Thursday at 5:30pm. The Dubplates, a reggae/dancehall riddim band born and raised in Charleston, draws much of its identity from the diversity of both its members and its fanbase. Performing with anywhere between seven and ten members, the Dubplates are a combination of traditional Jamaican Patwah and Lowcountry pride. Charleston native Dave "Big Hair" Brisacher started the band with his business partner "Daddy" Brady Waggoner back in 2002 as Dub Island Sound System. Somewhere between 2007 and 2008, the band brought in a full horn section, a few more vocalists and percussionists, and became the Dubplates. They have been the backing band for great names such as Tanya Stephens, Zumjay, and Future Fambo. So, come on out to Riverfront Park on Thursday, July 28th gates at 5:30pm and show starts at 6:30pm and enjoy great music by The Dubplates and a tasty dish and drink from one of our many food trucks and our wine/beer garden. This is a FREE show with FREE parking thanks to the gracious people at City of North Charleston, Icebox, and Ear For Music.
