If you dig Carribean rhythms, find someone to watch the kids, put your cell phone on silent and don your most comfortable shoes because when Massive McGregor hits the stage at Reef, you aren't going to want to be anywhere else.
Handsome, dreadlocked McGregor is bringing his roots/dancehall/rap/R&B/soul sounds back to Boise this weekend. As one of the acts during this summer's Alive After Five concert series, his music was a perfect complement to our desert heat. And now with the temperatures steadily dropping, he's coming back to warm our cockles with his dreamy, dancehall rhythms.
McGregor (whose real name is Delhart), was raised in Belize--where the population includes people of Hispanic, Creole and Mayan descent--and it is from this upbringing that he blends different sounds in creating his own unique songs and adding his own flavor to Reggae classics.
Even though it's gotten cold outside, it's going to be hot inside Reef this weekend. If you didn't see McGregor, don't be a fool a second time. If you did see him, you probably already have your best clothes washed and pressed and a sitter lined up because you know what a treat it is to have this music man come back to town. McGregor was a huge hit this summer so you might want to get to Reef early. Make a night of it. Get yourself a table and enjoy Reef's delicious island foods and drinks before the show begins. You won't need the table for long, though, because once McGregor takes the stage and begins to play his funky music, you'll have a hard time convincing your feet to leave the dance floor.
Friday, November 18, and Saturday, November 19, $5, 9:30 p.m., Reef, 125 S. 6th St., 287-9200.
