“Patience is a virtue” a common phrase that come to light during my experience at the Morgan Heritage and Blackalicious show. It was a slow Sunday night and Music Farm was looking pretty empty as the hip-hop group Blackalicious took the stage to open. Hip-Hop is personally not a genre that interests me put this group diligently took steps to get the crowd engaged and excited. They fulfilled their role as an opener getting people moving and excited for the main act.
Then as the Grammy winning Reggae band Morgan Heritage took stage the place was packed and everyone was on the dance floor. This multigenerational family band brought more energy and life to that stage than any band I have ever seen at Music Farm. Jemere Morgan the youngest of the group took the lead first singing smooth Reggae love songs and getting everyone up and dancing. He has an incredible voice and all of his songs were very easy to listen and dance to.
After Jemere’s set the real Morgan Heritage took the stage and blew everyone away with their positive and energy packed Reggae tunes. The drummer captivated the audience with his elaborate performance behind the set. It was a great time seeing the variety of musical talent on stage from guitar, bass, piano, saxophone, and more. Throughout the night the front man of the group would inspire the audience with his positive quotes and uplifting music. It was an unforgettable night getting to jam out to Reggae and dance all night long to a Grammy winning band.
