Throwback – Show – Common Kings, Sammy J, Hor!zen, & The Jimmy Weeks Project @ The Social

This show was one of the best we attended last year for the smaller venues in our hometown of Orlando. This fan-footage we captured won’t do it justice or show how diverse the talent was on stage. Let’s just say if you haven’t heard Common Kings live yet, their on-stage sound is studio quality and they brought a tremendous amount of energy to the night. Complimented by the irie sounds of Hor!zen, smooth vocals of Sammy Johnson, and aloha rythyms of Jimmy Week Project it was an constant wave of feel good island music.

Headliners Tribal Seeds shared the honor with Iration who rocked the Heineken and Jagiemeister Stages back to back ending a full day of good reggae music. This year was another full line up of veterans and some of the most roadworthy bands around. We look forward to catching a lot more of all these bands as we gear up for festival season chalked full of tours supporting new releases this year.
