G Love

Posted on: March 12th, 2007 by Anthony Rapino 13 Comments

Hey everybody.

I was thinking. I always talk about books and writing. I even talk about movies. But it’s a rare occasion that I talk about music.

Well, today, I’m changing that. Sure, I’ve had a few rejections I can tell you all about, but this is more fun.

Today, I want to mention one of my favorite groups: G love. They used to be called G love and the Special Sauce, but its been shortened.

Simply put, great band. They do a great mix of funk, rock, reggae, R&B, and jazz. Actually, there’s probably even more going on in there. Anyway, really I just want to make you all aware of this group. Check them out, it’s good stuff to write to.

Also, go to my myspace page to hear a song:

    i agree with the rest, Stoopid’s new album Chronchitis is incredible. the songs with guru and g-love are the shit. they still have tour dates left which i highly recommend going to if they are coming your way. check out the new songs at myspace.com/stoopid, or you can get the album off itunes. so pick it up, twist up a fatty and take a ride to the otherside.

  7. Krystal says:

    Chronchitis is the best CD out there!!! Songs like 2am and Nobody Knows are sick ass tracks you can surly smoke a blunt to. I HIGHLY recommend this CD to all!!!

    Hey all my fellow Reggae lovers,

    There is a music and arts festival in HUMBOLT COUNTY on August 1st,

    It is called Reggae Rising (formerly Reggae On The River) and it is a
    3 day music and arts festival where you camp out under the stars and
    watch great reggae bands play.

    Its really a great atmosphere and interaction of people all coming
    together and supporting each other.

    This years performers include UB40, Don Carlos, Berres Hammond, Collie
    Buddz, Rebelution, SIZZLA, Sly and Robbie, Gentleman, Julian Marley

    “More than 8,000 people filled Mizner Park in Boca Raton on a summer night, twice the size of the group of ticketed fans inside the park's amphitheater.”

    That was from a news article about their Boca Raton show. There concerts are sooo crazy!! Wish I could have been there! Can’t wait to go soon.

    Dave Matthews Band will be shown in 3D at movie theaters this month across the country! Looks like this is a one time event, and will be the only opportunity to see the footage as it won't ever be re-released in the future. The show will also include performances from Ben Harper & The Relentless 7 and Gogol Bordello. Will be in theaters from Dec. 11th-17th only! Click below for tickets and theater info.
