MIGHTY CROWN ENDS 2012 WITH A BANG
Mighty Crown "The Far East Rulers" have no intentions of slowing down! And their recent rock solid performance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York during the Caribbean Fever Music Festival ever solidifies this theory.
A significant milestone for Mighty Crown and sound system culture, this performance marks the first time a big league sound touched down on the coveted Barclays stage. Mighty Crown had the crowd of several thousand concertgoers moving to diverse selections of Caribbean music in between artist sets. Many patrons in attendance have agreed that Mighty Crown's performance will be remembered for years to come. Once Crown arrived, it was "pandemonium," fans have quipped. Mighty Crown's landmark stint at the Barclays was on the heels of a dynamic, live on air dub session and up-close-and-personal interview with radio host and show promoter Dahved Levy on New York's WBLS, 107.5 radio station the night before.
According to the official press release of the Caribbean Fever Music Festival, "The party vibe was preserved in between acts as the promoters deployed the world’s (number one) sound system, Mighty Crown, to keep the arena rocking and they did just that, juggling in between acts to the delight of the fans. It was indeed a perfect blend of Dancehall, Reggae and Soca -- a true Caribbean party."
Way before Mighty Crown graced the stage, the evening started on an exceptional note, as the business-savvy sound system was honored before scores of luminaries and peers for their contributions to Caribbean music, namely the sub-genre of sound system and dancehall culture. Filled with joy, hours before their landmark performance, Crown graciously accepted their award in the Barclays' Calvin Klein theater.
According to Mighty Crown's Co-Founder Masta Simon, "This honor is extremely special to us because it signifies that our fan base has extended from Jamaica to the wider Caribbean community."
