The legendary Josey Wales officially kicked off summer with a bang by delivering explosive performances at major music festivals, including the popular “Best of the Best” in Miami, Florida and “Oracabessa” in Queens, New York. The response to the deejay’s shows have been overwhelming, with fans decrying, “Josey has still got it!” Thousands witnessed the ace deejay in action, commanding the crowd better than many of his young peers. A lot more lies in store for the invigorated Wales, who’s phenomenal festival stints, have amassed media attention. Next up is a long awaited performance at Irish and Chin’s “Reeewind” on Saturday, July 18, 2015, when Wales will join Brigadier Jerry and Charlie Chaplin for a “Three the Hard Way” Spectacular.”

At the premiere event of it’s kind, “Reeewind” will provide patrons with 4 non-stop hours of Rub-a-Dub music and culture! Fans will be in for a special treat as Josey Wales “The Colonel,” Charlie Chaplin “The Colonel” and Brigadier Jerry “The General” reunite for unforgettable freestyle toasting over powerhouse “riddims” provided by the historic New York sound Downbeat. When the “Three the Hard Way” touch the stage, pure music mayhem and flashbacks to a time when Rub-a-Dub culture and sound systems reigned supreme, will overcome the Amazura Entertainment Complex. This epic event will mark Josey Wales’ very first “Reeewind” performance and hence, the first time “Three the Hard Way” will grace the “Reeewind” stage. This unprecedented reunion at “Reeewind” has been years in the making and by the fans’ demand, it will happen.

While sparring partners Josey Wales and Charlie Chaplin hail from King Stur Gav, Brigadier Jerry rose to prominence on Jah Love (with intermittent stints on King Stur Gav through out his career). Yet, when sharing the stage, this group of deejays boast an unprecedented chemistry and affinity for unique and precise lyrical delivery, while grounded on cultural and social themes. Rising as a force to be reckoned with at the peak of the Rub-a-Dub era, the deejays dominated as live performers, rather than recording artists. On Saturday, July 18, 2015 when Josey Wales’ half spoken and half sung style meets Charlie Chaplin’s “rapid-fire” delivery of humor and social commentary and Brigadier Jerry’s lyrical acrobats and melodic style of chanting, Amazura will be afforded a genuine and unique perspective of Caribbean entertainment.
In a colossal event being billed as  “Singers Meet DJs,” “Reeewind” will feature a who’s who of Reggae artists. Also slated on the powerhouse line up are Freddie McGregor, Cocoa Tea, Richie Spice, Shinehead, General Trees and Carlton Livingston, backed by Mighty Crown and Downbeat. Fans should brace themselves, as there may even be surprise guests.
