The DMV Caribbean Music Lovers meetup is for those who enjoy the rhythms of the islands. From Dancehall, Reggae, Salsa, Bachata, and even Soca, our group seeks to bring together men and women of the DC Metro area who want to socialize and frequent festivals, Happy Hours, Wine tastings, road trips, live shows, dance classes and any other venues that showcase this music and sometimes a little extra!. Some of our events don't always deal with a Caribbean theme, but it's all about one love with all cultures!
Celebrate the birthday of reggae legend Bob Marley at our One Love Birthday Bash featuring I&I Riddim, DC's three time award winning Best Reggae Band. The band is best known for their "Rock The Reggae" performance style that thrills audiences and transforms anywhere they perform into a reggae party. We will pay tribute to the music and memory of Bob Marley with I&I Riddim performing all of his classic songs as well as other reggae favorites to keep the audience partying and dancing all night!
I&I Riddim's name captures the spirit of their music, "I&I" expresses Bob Marley's "One Love" equality for all people and "Riddim" is reggae's irresistible dance rhythm. The band features the energetic vocals of Nickoli Andrews, sweet sounds of Ichelle Cole on vocals and keys, Frankie Javois on keys, Earl Carter on guitar, Malcolm Hall on bass and David McDavitt on drums. The band has shared the stage with reggae greats Bunny Wailer and Junior Marvin from Bob Marley's band The Wailers.
