ABOUT THE SHOW: Jurassic 5 was in fact formed of six members; two DJs/Producers coupled with four distinct rappers who, when performing sequences simultaneously, was perfectly tempered, making their early releases stand above the experimental rap that was burgeoning at the time. They weren't throwback or old school, but they embodied a nostalgic sound that was also at once fresh. Their first release, The Jurassic 5 EP, had songs like "Concrete Schoolyard" and "Jayou", quickly turned heads to their relaxed yet detailed sound. They reunited in 2013 at Coachella The six-member tribe, now of age and full of know-how, are reaching a stage in their career where their full rise will be marked in an upcoming documentary feature currently in the works. This March J5 will tour Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii.

ABOUT THE SHOW: There isn't an aspect of romantic relationships that Beres Hammond hasn't transformed into a classic (Reggae) song; whether written from the perspective of a keen observer or willing and sometimes unwilling protagonist, each is delivered with Beres' signature smoky, soulful grit. Widely acknowledged as Jamaica's greatest practicing singer/songwriter, Beres' beloved hit-filled repertoire, amassed over the past 40 years, is also rife with songs that simply, yet with profound effect, articulate the commonalities of life's struggles and triumphs, irrespective of one's class or creed, race or religion.

King Crimson have garnered little radio or music video airplay, but gained a large cult following. Their debut album, In the Court of the Crimson King, is widely regarded as a landmark in progressive rock.
