Chronixx takes show to Levels
Chronixx in acoustic setting on his birthday could only mean one thing - an amazing show. And that's exactly what patrons got last Friday night.
Held at the Skylines Levels in the hills overlooking Kingston, scores of guests were treated to a musical feast as the Dread and Terrible singer and his Zincfence Redemption band put on a show those in attendance won't soon forget.
The atmosphere was set from early as the selector thrilled the audience with a slew of reggae hits from the likes of Beres Hammond, Protégé, Damian Marley, Richie Spice and others. Though the show started late the crowd didn't seem to mind as they rocked to the music and engaged in light conversation until showtime.
By 10:30 p.m. the venue was jam-packed. If one hadn't secured a space at the front of the stage from early, getting a glimpse of Chronixx would have been impossible. The crowd was so thick there was hardly space to move. Some patrons complained about not being able to see while others huddled together, smartphone in hand, to get a better view.
Loud screams and shouts shortly after 10:30 p.m. signalled the start of the show. The screams subsided only long enough for Chronixx to sing his first note, then started again. Chronixx greeted the crowd and thanked all for coming out before jumping into his set with Alpha and Omega.
He rode the rhythm effortlessly and that pleased the crowd. One could tell the real Chronixx fans from the way they sang along to his every word, even with the songs that are not his most popular.
Start a Fyah was next on his musical agenda and Chronixx slayed it. Not only were his vocals on point, but his message of positivity and prosperity were well received. Aint No Giving In, They Don't Know and Most I were among the other songs he performed.
Admitting that music is a source of comfort for him Chronixx continued to thrill the crowd, turning his attention to the ladies with Access Granted, earning heavy forwards.
In closing Chronixx said he was glad for live shows because they give guests a unique opportunity to enjoy all elements of the music, by paying special attention to all the instruments independently.
