Reggae by the River, this Saturday Night
This Saturday August 15, NOC welcomes Tennessee-based reggae group Natti Love Joys to The Pourover, beginning at 8pm, part of our Reggae by the River event. Show up early and enjoy an authentic jerk chicken plate served at The Pourover, then get ready to dance and enjoy a great night of music by the river.
The Natti Love Joys are well known throughout the Southeast, playing jazz festivals and events from Atlanta to Nashville and beyond. Led by husband/wife duo Jati and Maria Allen, they entertain crowds with familiar reggae favorites as well as originals with diverse roots. The group also hosts two summer events on their property near Ducktown, TN (yep, the Ocoee) called Camp Reggae, where musicians converge to play and enjoy the beautiful mountain backdrop. Here is a review of their music from their MySpace page.
"...With roots that stem from the legendary greats such as Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals and Jimmy Cliff, the sound of The Natti Love Joys is a dynamic blend of reggae, modern rhythm and blues, drum and bass, hip hop, and various forms of jazz. This creative style of music gives way to a unique, one of a kind sound that captivates and amazes its crowd show after show."
