Community’s musical tribute to Fadda Dub’
The family of the late reggae master Kent Outerbridge, better known as Dub or “Fadda Dub”, have been treated to a show of love from the community.
A cheque for $1,000, part of the proceeds raised at a packed show earlier this month, was presented to Mr Outerbridge’s son Jahkim Smith in tribute to the popular promoter and founder of Dub City — the music store that introduced many locals to reggae.
Mr Outerbridge died in May aged 64.
One Love Promotions, in conjunction with Magnum Force Entertainment, hosted the Tribute to Fadda Dub dance on September 3 at Devonshire Recreation Club.
The concert, with the island’s top old school DJs, featured classics from the 1980s and 1990s on vinyl records.
About 500 people came out for artists including Dub City International, Magnum Force International, Jones Town International, Black Lion, Reality Sound, Lenky Boy, and Black Star.
The show was hosted by Irie FM’s Conscious J.
Original Dub City artist Junior C also made an appearance — as well as Ninja Cutty from Hott 107.5 and Reality Sound, and DJs Shorta Ranks and Krucial.
Organisers thanked sponsors hardware store Gorham’s, Island Construction, utilities company Ascendant Technologies, Brandit, Shaw Trucking, drinks firm John Barritt & Son, drinks wholesaler Burrows & Lightbourn, Ben Outerbridge and Bermuda Sanitation & Engineering.
