Mateel Harvest Ball To Feature Perfect This Friday, November 18th
“Let the wild rumpus begin” with the annual Harvest Ball this Friday, November 18th, at Mateel Community Center! Headlining will be reggae music’s rising star, Perfect, who was one of the hits at this year’s Reggae on the River.
Coming of age in the cool hills of Bamboo, in St. Ann Parish, JA, Greg Rose (aka Perfect) grew up with an appreciation of various musical genres. He got his start DJ-ing in the sound system, Trend Setter, and it was with this crew that he recorded his first dub plates. The first tracks that really took off for him were 2004’s Lock Me Up and 2005’s Hand Cart Bwoy. In 2006 Perfect released his debut album, Giddimani, which features many of his early singles in one collection. His second release, Born Dead With Life, came out in 2008 and has certainly proven to be a milestone for Perfect, with features alongside guests like Gyptian, Chezidek, and Turbulence. Recognized as one of the most powerful, intriguing, and refreshing voices on today’s reggae/ dancehall scene, Perfect brings a perfect mix of urban style, roots vibes, and straight up soul for a sound that is perfectly Perfect.
Also in the line up for this year’s Harvest Ball will be Bay Area favorites, Luv Fyah and the Reggae Angels, along with Second Nature Sound, a talented collection of local DJs.
