This Friday, Oct. 10, Mateel Community Center in Redway welcomes J Boog’s Run Em Hard Tour. The show will feature Samoan reggae superstar, J Boog, along with triple bill of island-style reggae including Hot Rain and Inna Vision.
Growing up in the rough streets of Compton, Boog credits the strong sense of tradition and culture he absorbed from his family of Samoan ancestry with being instrumental in keeping him off the streets and on his path to a successful music career. Boog’s south central swag and Hawaiian hang loose attitude comes out in his brand, combining authentic island music with genuine Jamaican reggae, making for a potent blend.
Tickets are on sale now at the usual local outlets and online at mateel.org for $25 in advance. Tickets at the door will be $30. Doors open at 8 p.m. with a DJ, Hawaiian style dinner available for purchase and a bar for 21 and over. Live music will begin at 9 p.m. with Inna Vision.
