We have been holding off BIG TIME in announcing something incredibly exciting that is coming to downtown Springfield as part of the Levitt AMP Springfield concert series that we as Dumb Records had a hand in, but we can no longer hold off as this is something that is happening nearly one month from now. Legendary ska group from Jamaica, THE SKATALITES will be performing FOR FREE on or near the Y-block in downtown Springfield on Thursday, June 6th as a part of the Levitt AMP Concert Series. The Skatalites are a group that has been around playing music in some or another since over 55 years ago. They will be performing here in Springfield as a ten piece band. Stream their first ever album from 1967 on the player below.
The concert is kicking off on the lawn (or nearby) at 6:00 pm with one opening act “TaQsem.” It is free. For those of you unfamiliar on where the Y-block, it is visible right through the alley right next to us (very close to Dumb Records). Find a facebook event for this one right here. This concert is supposed to be one in a ten part series being presented by Levitt AMP Springfield and the Springfield Area Arts Council. We’ll be sure to let you know when all of those concerts are announced, you can also follow their facebook page for updates right here.
