Tarrus Riley & Blak Soil Band Delivers At Rebel Salute

For just over 25 minutes, Tarrus Riley and his Blak Soil band delivered a top notch workman like performance at the just concluded Rebel Salute stage show held at the Richmond Estate in St Ann. Riley and crew performed on Friday January 18 of the two day festival.

Armed with his latest single Gimmie Likkle One Drop, Riley kept a steady pace throughout delivering hit after hit. Sorry is a Sorry Word, Woman of My Dreams, Good Girl Gone Bad, Shaka Zulu Pickney, the enigmatic Lion Paw, She's Royal and Never Leave I Jah Jah were aimed at a music hungry audience which ate word for word.

During his set, Riley and band leader, saxaphonist Dean Fraser engaged in a lyrical showdown which patrons thoroughly enjoyed.

The performance of Riley and his band was one of the major highlights of the just concluded event. The sky showed its appreciation by delivering showers of blessing at the end of the performance.
