I was listening to 'Livicated' just recently. Nice album!

Sure would be cool to see Akae Beka with a horn section someday. Has anyone ever seen Midnite/Akae Beka with a live horn section?

Dang, I'm planning on going to the Hopmonk show, but that's a lot of acts! Guess it will be a late night, and I hope it doesn't mean Akae Beka will have a shorter set!

8:00pm - Doors
8:00-9:00pm DJ Chalice
9:00-10:00pm Dubtonic Kru
10:15-11:15 Spiritual & The Oufah Band

Personally I'd rather remove one of the 2 opening acts & have Akae Beka play an extra hour.

I'm sure many of the Midnite/Akae Beka fans over the years would agree with you on that. Unfortunately, it is not in the contract.

I was watching a few recent videos, it looks like they are down to Edmund ,Suren and Ras L from the previous Midnite formation. I’m sure gonna miss Kenny and Christian

I went to the Santa Cruz show. Maybe he was sick or the smoke was getting to him because his voice sounded strained(or maybe it just sounded different because I was blasting Unpolished the drive over) The band sounded great and Ras L was playing a mean bass. You could kinda see Vaughn had a runny nose, might have had a cold.

I love Midnite so much , I just didn’t walk away feeling refreshed like I usually do.

Last nights show in Sebastopol was okay. I have so much love and respect for Vaughan, having seen him and the band play over the past 18 years!! Wow. Anyhow, they came on just after midnight, and vibes were super mellow, I guess that is not a surprise. Spiritual had put on anice set, which was full of energy, and I knew Akae Beka would slow it down.

First 4-5 tunes were close to an hour in total. Finally around 130, the place flicked the lights, signaling last call. This seemed to spark the band a little bit, and they started playing shorter tunes, Vaughn pulling up tunes and moving on to the next. He played Love Right to start, meditation mid way through, and closed with love the life you live.

The archive of tunes is so massive, yet I have to admit the tunes they played were not really that interesting or appealing to me personally. When they played older midnite tunes, the crowd lit up with energy.

I had seen from pictures and last night, that Vaughan has changed his appearance with the very regal and formal ‘selassie like cloak’, a change from t shorts, sweat pants and casual wear. As always , he seems to be in a deep mediation. The band sounded pretty good, not as tight as in th the past. I know Vaughan has such prowess on the mic, and such an original style, I wish he would showcase it more and bring some more energy to the show.

Nonetheless, we gives thanks for the gathering and sound. Bless.

Santa cruz show at Moe's Alley was just OK. Not great. Packed, as usual, but the overall set was not at all memorable.

Checked them in Oakland last night. Nice mellow vibe which is Vaughn's specialty. Personally I really liked the song selection as they played some rarer Midnite tunes than usual, apart from 'Meditation'. Missed Edward on guitar but the band still sounds tight. Ras L keeps getting better & better on bass, he was rolling last night! I think they needed to turn up their keyboards more because it was really subtle and could barely hear it until the end of songs, but he sounded nice.

They played a song I wasn't familiar with but really liked it. I think it was called "Empire Grade"? Does anyone know this song and if so what Midnite/Akae Beka album it's on? I've been searching for it on the web and can't find it...

Bless Vaughn Benjamin and the Midnite/Akae Beka vibration, they're still going strong!

Catching them in Burlington on Tuesday. Realized I hadn't seen Akae Beka in almost 3 years. Every time they've come to the Northeast it's either been to far, or just not in the cards. Wishing I could check the SOB's show. First time I saw Midnite was there back in 2005.
