Music4Life with Pato Banton at Flamingo Cantina

We’re proud to be opening up for Pato Banton again at the Flamingo Cantina on Sunday, March 24th. Our featured vocalists for this show will be Moe & Phillipidon and DJ Jah Bill will be opening. This is an early show starting at 8:00 PM and Pato Banton will be on stage by 10:00 PM. Ages 18+ are welcome and tickets are available through Eventbrite.

A Pato Banton concert is an event not to be missed and an experience not to be forgotten.

Positive vibrations abound with a beat to keep you on your dancing feet, while Pato delivers a message that is food for the mind and soul. Many have considered his charismatic performance as live theatre where no show is alike and audience members become participants in the experience. Pato dialogues with the crowd on a range of topics including current day events and spiritual freedom while keeping the vibes upbeat and fun! The direction of the concert is totally based on the feedback Pato receives from the audience as there is no fixed set list. Many have said that the positivity generated from the stage has changed their lives forever. Sometimes Pato invites his fans to join him in a prayer circle after the show, where some have cried while sharing their stories of contemplated suicide, isolation after losing a loved one, struggles with substance abuse and how their personal connection with Pato has given them the strength to “Stay Positive” & “Never Give In.”

Smooth Sailing by Alan Moe Monsarrat

Smooth Sailing is our 2nd release from Alan Moe Monsarrat and was released on Friday, May 25, 2018. It was written by Curly Putman and Sonny Throckmorton, and Moe had this to say about the song:

“I’ve always loved the song and since Sonny is my dear friend I decided to cover a few of his tunes reggae style. This track has a definitive ‘80s dancehall rhythm with the beautiful melody floating above it. Sonny loves it and we hope you do too. I bet you could sing a baby to sleep with this one.”

This is the first release from a forthcoming tribute EP tentatively called Thank You Sonny that we’re working on.

Only Jah Loves Them All

Our new single and video from Alan Moe Monsarrat & Phillipidon was released on Friday, November 3, 2017. It’s called Only Jah Loves Them All.

In the lyrics, the message of His universal and unending love for all His children is revealed. We are all His children, young and old and of all colors. He is capable of this love that we can only aspire to. Let us all be encouraged to be more like H.I.M.

Alan Moe Monsarrat was born in 1951 in Phenix City, Alabama. His parents were in the U.S. Army and he grew up in many different places. At age 13 (1964) he started singing with a band near Tokyo, Japan. After moving back to the states he joined a band in San Antonio, Texas. He started out as a singer but in 1968 he started playing bass as well. He started playing Reggae in Hawaii in 1973 and was in the first Reggae band in Texas, The Lotions.

Philip White aka Phillipidon was born chanting in Kingston, Jamaica. He is known for his gravelly-gruff voice, interlacing a few iconoclastic interjections, and weaving wanton mayhem amongst audiences with his impromptu outbursts during live performances. When he is not doing music, he is a college professor teaching anatomy, biology and physiology at Houston Community College.
