Always a crowd pleaser on Vashon Island, Clinton Fearon & The Boogie Brown Band is coming back to the Red Bicycle for another amazing performance of his roots reggae music. If you like roots reggae, this is a show you won't want to miss. Clinton Fearon has quickly won the hearts of many an Islander and will pack the dance floor with dancing bodies! Clinton hasn't done a show at the Red Bike in a very long time, so he's overdue and make no mistake about it - this show will sell out fast!

Much like quite a few other reggae musicians who came of age in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Clinton Fearon was a country boy who migrated to Kingston as a teenager in order to seek his musical fortune amongst the proliferating studios and sound systems of the big city. He was born in St. Andrew in 1951 and moved around the countryside with his father and stepmother before relocating to Kingston in 1967; he immediately organized a singing group with some friends, but it never amounted to anything and broke up before it could record. It was around 1970, when he joined Albert Griffiths and Errol Grandison to form the Gladiators, that he hit his stride as a musician, and began what would be the most significant and commercially successful association of his career.

Flash forward to 1989, when Clinton came to Seattle and co-founded The Defenders and then finally in 1993, formed his own group called The Boogie Brown Band.

When asked about his music, Clinton states that "our sound is roots, its roots, lovers rock, rock steady. It's not too far from the root. I'm not trying to branch off into anything I'm not totally relaxed with. A lot of (other bands) try to follow the market. I try to follow my creativity more so than follow the market. Its whats in your heart; you have to follow your heart."

Clinton Fearon is counted among Jamaica's most talented musicians by peers and professionals in the Reggae music industry. His infectious bass riffs have always led the way, whether he is playing bass, guitar or percussion, singing lead vocals or providing background harmonies.

The show begins at 9pm, the cover is $10.00 and it is an all-ages event until 11pm, 21+ after that. The Red Bike has experienced sold-out shows with Clinton in the past and anticipates the same for this one, so its highly advised that people buy tickets in advance.
