[JAMES ISLAND] – The Reggae Nights Summer Concert Series is finishing up for the season! Join us for the summer’s final Friday night concert on Aug. 1. Gates open at 7:30 p.m. and music by Mystic Vibrations begins at 8:30 p.m.
A regular at the James Island County Park concert series, Mystic Vibrations returns to provide a fantastic finale for the 2014 season of Reggae Nights. The strong roots of Mystic Vibrations began in Little London, Westmoreland, Jamaica and were brought to the U.S. in 1992 by Ric Williams. A busy schedule keeps the band constantly on the road touring the East Coast, from New York to Florida. The band is a four-piece rhythm section of talented musicians; Andrew Whitaker (drums), George ‘Raheem” Johnson (bass), Marcus ‘Marky’ Ruby (keyboards and backing vocals), Dion 'Caution' Samuel (Percussion), and Ric Williams (guitar and lead vocals). Credited to the band’s name are two self-released studio albums and one live recording. The band has established a large fan base that has steadily grown over the years.
