Daddy U-ROY has been in the music business for 47 years, setting the trend for a whole musical genre coming out of Jamaica. U-Roy's influence on the course of popular music is immense and pervasive. The roots of hip-hop style grow from the bedrock of Daddy U-Roy and the early masters of Jamaican toasting. With Duke Reid and Treasure Isle in the late 60’s and early 70’s, U-Roy voiced some of the greatest rock steady rhythms in the golden era of the Jamaican sound. Then, with King Tubby’s new dub style emerging out of Waterhouse, U-Roy’s deejaying became the defining sound in reggae music. His catalog of hits cover five decades and includes Wake the Town, Wear You to the Ball and Chalice in the Palace. Currently he has out a new single that was just released in 2007 - Precious, featuring the rising star Alborosie. You can find out more about U-Roy at www.myspace.com/uroyreggae

is another one-of-a-kind legend of reggae music. His numerous classic hits, including Queen of the Minstrels, Stars and The Gorgon, count among some of the most requested year-to-year song titles in Jamaican music. In 2006, he performed at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, and did a successful U.S. west coast tour. In 2005, Cornel appeared in California at the Trade Roots Reggae 20th Anniversary show at SOMA, San Diego, performing for 1,500 people along with Horace Andy. Highly respected as a legendary singer amongst Jamaican artists, Cornel Campbell commands one of the best voices to ever come out of Jamaica. With a new CD slated for a 2008 release - NEW SCROLL, on the Zion High label, Cornel Campbell is hitting the road with some fresh new songs along with his classic older material.
