Every year, for over forty years, Connecticut has been jammin' to the sounds of love, respect, honor, peace, and the story of the downtrodden survivor. The tradition of bringing reggae music to the stage has always been to bring people together for a weekend of peace and brotherly love. This year will be no different and in fact much improved as this year in light of the National attention to victims of gun violence, we will be putting a portion from every ticket sale to Waterbury United Way, a charity who offers counseling to victims of gun violence right here in Connecticut.
