To Pato Banton, music seems to be more of a spiritual journey than a just a musical destination. To sit and spend even a moment in the presence of this powerful man's music is what many Pato-ites have considered to be life saving. Which should make him happy since he has stated that his main quest is to bring positivity to the masses. This is what he seems to have done.
Pato's story is one of change and rebirth. Pato went from being a 9 year old "lookout" at illegal parties for his father to being honored at the Reggae Hall Of Fame, the BBC's Lifetime Achievement Award as well as many other honorable achievements for his acts of altruism in the world. Pato gives the gift of music and lyrical genius to his fans, as well as a prayer circle after his show where fans get the opportunity to share stories of their lives and how Pato inspired them to "Stay Positive & Never Give In." Pato plays music, but the ripples set in motion from the message of his music is strong enough to change lives
Rat Soup is an original funk soul band throwing it down in Southern California. Based in Long Beach, Rat Soup ensures heavy grooves, swinging beats and deep funk are always part of the mix. Individually they are an eclectic group of ingredients. But once mixed, simmered, and stewed together, they create the savory tasty concoction known as Rat Soup.
An alternative reggae singer/songwriter from the Island of Guam. Currently living in Los Angeles hustling for the dream.
