rdfjs6caThis year marks the 30th anniversary of WTMD’s Reggae Rhythms show with Dubmaster Clint Thomas, and we’re celebrating on Saturday Aug. 13 with a free live show featuring Baltimore reggae musicians Scotty P of Jah Works and Strykers Posse.

Doors open at 3 p.m. and we’ll go live on air at 3:30 p.m. This is a free show, sponsored in part by Flying Dog Brewery.

Fronted by singers Ichelle Cole and Yvonne Deane-Hibbert, Strykers Posse has been part of Baltimore’s reggae scene for almost three decades. They’ve won multiple awards for their music. And on Saturday Aug. 13, they’ll join Scotty P to perform a few songs, and then perform an hour-long set of their own music.

Jah Works singer Scotty P will perform as part of Reggae Rhythms' 30th anniversary tribute Aug. 13 at WTMD.

For years, Scotty P has been the voice of Baltimore reggae band Jah Works as well as a solo artist in his own right. Since coming together in 1993, Jah Works has become one of the city’s most popular and acclaimed reggae bands. In May, they released their latest album, “Believe.”

Dubmaster Clint Thomas’ interest in reggae music took off when he met Bob Marley at a concert in 1979. Thomas was 31 years old when he began hosting the reggae show for what was then WCVT back in January 1986. The show became Reggae Rhythms in the ’90s, and over the years he has met and interviewed some of the genre’s biggest stars. Thomas’ three decade-long commitment to spreading reggae music has earned him fans across the globe.
