Pacific Northwest reggae pop dance band JaSkaMon will continue its Reggae The Earth Tour with a performance at the Yachats Commons this Saturday, May 20.
“JaSkaMon is making a number of tour stops with its Reggae The Earth show,” said band leader Barry Klusman, “featuring Earth-friendly tunes and pop songs from its four CDs set to danceable Caribbean beats.
In keeping with the eco-friendly nature of the concert, the band will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the MidCoast Wathersheds Council, a local non-profit group that does restoration and conservation work on the coast.
“The work of the MidCoast Watersheds Council helps to protect the quality of our drinking water, restores healthy salmon and steelhead populations and improves the wetlands, estuaries and near shore environments where we kayak, fish and birdwatch,” Klusman said. “Please come out and join us, dance the night away knowing that you are helping restore the streams, wetlands and beaches we all enjoy and love on Oregon’s MidCoast.”
JaSkaMon has a core of five musicians including Klusman, drummer Rodney Turner, horn and keyboard section Snail Caldwell and Pam Prosise, and bassist Louis Butts. For its Reggae The Earth tour, the band is welcoming guest musicians to the stage expanding the rhythm section with congas and keyboards.
Doors for the May 20 concert open at 6 pm, with the show running from 7 to 10 pm. The 21-and over event will feature a no-host local beer and wine bar.
Tickets, $20 per person, are available at the door or online at www.JaSkaMon.com.
