Show Info

with King Hopeton! The tight and fiery RazorBlade & the Blade Band serve as host and house band in the annual Ashkenaz Boxing Day celebration, always a reggae event. Throughout the night the band will be joined by surprise guest musicians to keep the conscious energy high and the dance floor full. While growing up in Westmoreland, Jamaica, RazorBlade and other youngsters would get together and play music. Even though few could afford real instruments, they were determined to create sound with anything they could get their hands on: cardboard boxes, empty bottles, tin cans. He later immigrated to the United States and found that drums captured his heart. He says of the experience, “the drums actually chose me.” Since then, he has played with Andrew Tosh, Mad Cobra, Paul Elliott, the Harmonics, and Our Boys Steel Band.
