In a joint effort with Dreamland in Oak Bluffs, Nectar’s summer concert series is back with the first show of the season by up-and-coming Jamaican reggae revival artist Chronixx and his band, Zincfence Redemption. The doors of Dreamland will open to the 21+ crowd for the show this Thursday, July 3, at 9 pm.
Jamar “Chronixx” McNaughton’s performances feature a smooth voice and stimulating lyrics over Diplo’s Major Lazer-backed mixtapes. The young artist found his musical footing during studio visits with his father, reggae musician Chronicle, where Burro Banton and Gregory Isaacs, among others, became his peers. He wandered the Jamaican music scene performing gospel harmonies in high school for artists Jermaine Edwards and Lutan Fyah and creating rhythms for Icebox and Maverick Records. Now 21 years old, he beckons “Rasta youths” in his lyrics and synth-heavy beats that hint at the coming of a reggae revolution.
City One Sound and DJ Kalif will entertain the crowd before and after the show. Tickets are $22 in advance and $27 at the door. Visit nectarspresents.com for more information.
