California, USA; Popular reggae act Warrior King joins Steel Pulse, Anthony B and Sizzla, and others, for the eighth annual One Love One Heart Reggae Festival on Saturday, September 2 and Sunday, September 3 at the Yolo County Fairgrounds in Woodlands, California, United States.
Warrior King, confirmed
for the Saturday edition of the One Love One Heart Reggae Festival, has been
making a slew of appearances across the US and Europe in recent months.
“2017 has been a great
year so far. I give thanks for the recognition and the love from fans all
across the world. The catalogue is big and it is a really good feeling to
perform in places so far away from Jamaica and feel so at home because of the
love from my audience,” shares the singer born Mark Dyer.
Coming off of a
successful European festival tour, in July, with his Rootz Warrior Band, the “Virtuous
Woman” singer engaged thousands of fans at Texel Island Vibes, the LB27 Reggae
Camp, Reggae Jam and Reggae in Wulf before heading to California for club and
concert performances in August.
The highlight of Warrior
King’s trip to the US this time around was his return to the 33rd annual
Reggae on the River Festival in August after 13 years.
According to Dyer “It
was like me return home. The vibes was right. Reggae on the River is always a
nice mystical kind of vibe out in the country where you have a lot of farmers.
It is a big show that really supports true reggae acts from Jamaica and across
Warrior King’s next
appearance with his Rootz Warrior Band in California will be at the Anderson
Valley Grange on Friday, August 18 – in celebration of Marcus Garvey’s 130th
birthday. The “Never Go Where Pagans Go” singer has long been a supporter of
Garvey’s teachings. In 2010, he received The Marcus Garvey Music Award, along
with Jimmy Tucker, for their musical work; and this year, June 11 was
proclaimed annual ‘Mark “Warrior King” Dyer Day’ by Buffalo, New York’s Mayor
Byron W Brown, ahead of the annual Junteenth Festival initiatives which
promotes Garvey’s teachings among young people.
2017 will also see the
“Rootz Warrior” embarking on first-time performances in China – a territory
where reggae music has only just started to break ground.
Warrior King will kick
start his 2017 Caribbean tour with a headline performance at Country Fest
slated for Saturday, September 30 at Tabaquite Recreation Grounds in Trinidad.
His latest studio album, The Rootz Warrior, is available on all major digital music distribution sites.
