Interviews
Alex Marley was born on the 29th of July, 1987 in Kingston, Jamaica. Alex grew up listening to various forms of different music : amongst people like his cousin Bob Marley and sons as well as other greats like Garnet Silk, Burning Spear, Jacob Miller, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Hendrix, Carlos Santana, and Dennis Brown. He was called to music at a very early age as he started Writing songs since age eleven. He attended St. Georges College and while there he wrote his first song “Color Prejudice,” after which he went to Quality ...
Marley is a Rastafarian who’s fluent in Jamaican culture and music, which over the years he’s broadened to include other sounds and instruments (he plays seven and DJs). Although he came from a purely reggae/dance-hall background, his experience studying music at The Edna Manley College of Visual and Performing in Kingston and traveling the world surfing (he’s been a member of Jamaica’s national team) introduced him to different cultures and sounds.

Diversity is the essential component in Marley’s endeavors and its reflected in the makeup of his band, the Black Lion Band. Their keyboardist is from the USA, drummer is from Trinidad, bassist from Venezuela and Marley is from Jamaica. He says it makes it more natural to blend ideas and sounds.

“The band I’m playing with used to play rock,” Marley said. “They’re pros so they know how to play reggae as well. I bring the dance-hall and reggae and they bring the rock.”

Special guests at intermission include the Sonar Fleece Band and DJ Dom Electro from the Dub Poet Society. The club will also have Caribbean food and soft drinks available, along with the obligatory Red Stripe beer. Tickets are $20. Call 750-2656 or 587-9739 for ticket info.
