After many requests to bring back a weekend party for our fans we are proud to announce the launch of ‘Rockers’ this Saturday August 15th inside Kress restaurant.  Last Saturday’s success of the ‘Rock The Bells’ after party hosted by Damian Marley showed us the potential of the Kress restaurant to bring our dancehall/hip hop vibe there on a weekly basis. ‘Rockers’ will feature monthly live shows, live art, the best in reggae, dancehall, hip hop, crazy remixes and mash ups. Our goal is to make the restaurant have a totally different feel than the rest of Kress on Saturday nights which currently has a typical Hollywood club vibe.

Dj Pj Butta, formerly of 100.3 The Beat and currently world travelling Dj, will be our resident for ‘Rockers’ Sataurdays.  Look for us to combine Pj with guest Dj’s from Jamaica and across the USA all of who bring the ‘Rockers’ vibe. There will also be a monthly live band and guest celebrity musicians who will come in to add to the atmosphere we are creating in the restaurant.

The name ‘Rockers’, which is another name for reggae music, was coined in the 70’s as reggae started to become more popular. It defined a movement of reggae musicians who were laying the foundation for the reggae music that the world enjoys today. There has been a movie and television series called ‘Rockers’ both of which were major forces in pushing the reggae movement forward. Free i Entertainment looks to continue the Rockers movements as the great productions have done before us.

Several popular reggae artists star in the movie, including Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, Burning Spear, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Dillinger, and Jacob Miller. Rockers was originally to be a documentary but blossomed into a full-length feature showing the reggae culture at its peak.
