Oneness Sound proudly presents a night of pure St. Croix Roots Reggae for the whole family with Midnite plus special guest Mystic Vision at the Miner’s Foundry on Thursday, March 15. This community event is all ages so bring the whole family to enjoy conscious roots music plus craft vendors and Ital food & drinks from Kat’s Kitchen.
Hailing from the Island of St Croix, Midnite is one of the most promising roots reggae bands of the millennium. They are vanguards of conscious reggae whose profound and innovative lyrics are sincere and deeply rooted. Their cd recordings and live performances will have reggae and non-reggae listeners open to the messages they bring.
Lead singer Vaughn Benjamin’s electrifying voice seems an amalgamation of many great voices in reggae–soulful, chanting, edgy. Vaughn’s potent lyrical style and his brother Ron’s exquisite musical directorship and outstanding bass lines form the nucleus of this group. Sticks man Christian ‘Sly’ Molinna-Curet lays down crucial one-drops on drums, while Ankh Watep bubbles on keyboards. Edmund Fieulleteau and Kenny Byron round out the crew with their excellent guitar work. Midnite weaves the cultural lyrics of “old school” roots music with modern day experiences to create a unique listening encounter. Reggae – naked and raw is an apt description for Midnite’s musical style, in which they forgo the frills of extensive remixes, overdubbing and other musical refinements.
Midnite explodes in live performances with sets that often exceed 3 hours. Their vigorous, weighty sound, driven by the punchy bass lines creates a vibe that penetrates straight to the heart. These epic musical communions have earned Midnite an enormous following throughout the roots community.
