Urban Dread has been around for quite a while. 

I remember seeing them for the first time when I was a teenager at a party at Calamigos Ranch in the early 90s. 

They’ve been a big name on the local scene even longer than that.

I brought my kids out to the Janss Mall to watch them play one of the last installments of the Summer Concert Series.

They sounded great.   They’re a good, solid band.  It was really cool when the singer/ keyboardist played the sax on a few tunes.    Everyone from seniors to babies were dancing to their tunes.  They played some familiar reggae tunes and I really liked their version of “Englishman In New York” by Sting – they put a really good reggae spin on that tune.   They also did “Evil Ways” by Santana,  popular songs by Jason Mraz, Men At Work and quite a few other good, recognizable songs.   A fun time was definitely had by all.
