No Comments


Montreal (QC) - 13 October 2005, Cezar Brumeanu Productions and Nuff Respect Promotions presents superstar king of dancehall artist Beenie Man featuring the Shocking Vibes crew; with John Hype, Silver Cat, Little Kirk, and Patchy.

Backed by Ruff Kut band they will perform live at Le Medley (1170 St-Denis/Rene-Levesque) on December 3rd, 2005. Supporting acts include Django, Beeco, Bryms, Chonfa, and Rasselas, backed by Addi Roots band; special appearances by Mikey Dangerous, Jermaine Maxwell and Khalila. Music comes courtesy by Montreal's own Little Thunder, Firesquad, Road Warrior, and DJ Notch. Prymtym and Don Ignorance will host the event.

"Beenie Man is one of the few artists that can put on a 2-hour long show or more, and still keep the crowds jumping all night...he is one of the best in the business", says concert producer Cezar Brumeanu. Back by popular demand from a earlier performance this year; Beenie Man is bringing his entire Shocking Vibes crew including the ever popular dancer John Hype, who is credited for being one of the best invents of new reggae dancehall moves.

When gal praisin', high flossin' Beenie Man is in the house, you're guaranteed a performance filled with unpredictability and non-stop excitement. The reggae rapper boasts an astounding 60-plus number one singles, scores of hit albums - including Virgin Records releases Art and Life (2000) and Tropical Storm (2002) - and who knows how many of the platinum standard stage shows that crowned him long ago as reggae dancehall's undisputed King.

For his last two Virgin Records sets, the versatile "Doctor" flowed over joints produced by American artists like The Neptunes and Irv Gotti and worked that roiling boundary between dancehall, pop, and hip hop alongside superstars Wyclef, Kelis, Lil Kim, Mya (for Art and Life irresistible smash hit "Girls Dem Sugar") and Janet Jackson (for Tropical Storm rump-shaking chart-dominator "Feel It Boy").

An abundance of musical gifts, countless hits, the entertainer's true sense of humor, natural magnetism, and a strict professional work ethic won Beenie Man a 5 record deal with Virgin Records. Art and Life went on to win the Grammy for Best Reggae Album in 2000. The mission continued with 2002's Tropical Storm, also created at the crossroads between dancehall and hip-hop.
