Albany's free Alive at Five concert series presented by KeyBank hosts Reggae Night on August 3rd presented by media sponsors WVCR 88.3 The Saint & Wcaa-lp 107.3 FM - Albany, NY with King Yellowman and the Sagittarius Band and Dr. Jah and The Love Prophets!

King Yellowman and the Sagittarius Band has an incredible history in Reggae music. His upbringing at the Maxfield Home orphanage in Kingston and being albino in Jamaica were two obstacles the he overcame and went on to be the biggest reggae artist since Bob Marley. After winning a talent contest at Tastee Patties in Kingston, Yellow went on to excite reggae crowds all over Jamaica and the rest of the world. His ability to ride rhythm and excite a crowd made Yellow an instant hit in Jamaica. Later in his career, Yellow began to spread out and work for a number of different producers, sometimes releasing as many as five albums per year. Yellowman was diagnosed with jaw cancer and was given six months to live in 1986. After surgery an extended leave of absence from the record industry, Yellowman began his comeback with the song "Blueberry Hill", and his career was re-launched. Yellowman's witticisms are as cheeky, spirited and intelligent as ever, and delivered with his customary sharp, melodic style.


Dr. Jah and the Love Prophets return to Alive at Five! Based in the Capital Region, Dr. Jah and the Love Prophets have been on the reggae scene for over 20 years!
