Barinton Reggae Night (Tribute to the legends of reggae)
Special guest: Andrew Murphy aka. Mr. Summerjam.
Andrew Murphy, born and raised on the Caribbean island Barbados, came to Germany in February
1978 as singer and guitarist with a music group called Rhapsody, one of the first bands who introduced reggae and calypso, soca music to German Audiences. Andrew and Rhapsody traveled through many European countries, even the former D.D.R. before the wall fell, and toured with such names as Billy Preston, UB40,The wailers, Ziggy Marley, Lee Scratch Perry, Aswad, Kaoma, Eek-a-mouse and performed many of the then existing music festivals. With the growing popularity of Reggae in Germany it was inevitable that a music festival would emerge based on that theme, and in 1985 Summerjam was born. After several appearances at Summerjam, Andrew was elected to be Germany´s first Reggae Festival M.C, which since then earned him the name (Mr. Summerjam), a name he carries with pride.
