Grammy-nominated reggae artist to headline concert at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall


Grammy-nominated reggae artist Matisyahu, Common Kings and Orphan will present The Broken Crows Tour live at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall Oct. 20.

Matisyahu and guitarist Aaron Dugan, bassist Stu Brooks, drummer Joe Tomino and keyboardist Big Yuki will perform onstage. The band’s newest album,

“Undercurrent,” merges instrumental improvisation sessions with lyrics and vocals.

Common Kings, an Orange County rock-reggae outfit, joins Matisyahu in support of its debut album, “Lost in Paradise,” released on Island Empire Records. The album features collaborations with songwriters and producers such as Pooh Bear, Justin Bieber, DJ Flict and Dwayne “Supa Dups” Chin-Quee. The tour also marks the appearance of Orphan, a new Matisyahu-produced project.

“Orphan is a band I signed currently living and making music out of my home,” said Matisyahu. "All three core members Menachem, Nissin and Chaim are sons of Lubavitch Rabbis and met in Yeshiva. They formed a bond around my release at the time Live at Stubbs 2 and began to study the sounds of Dub Trio. These 22-year old boys manage to retain the spirit of their Lubavitch heritage while creating music with a fresh Brooklyn edge that is an outgrowth of the Matisyahu sound. I am proud to introduce to you Orphan. The soundtrack to a generation who never met their rebbe and have had to blaze a new trail.”
