I don't think so. What makes you think they might?

Interesting. That would be cool if they were there.

They will be at World beat center in San Diego February 16th. They do still need to work, I hope they continue to perform. It will be interesting to see if Ron comes back.

I don't see how Akae Beka can continue on without Vaughn. He WAS the band. This is probably a one-time tribute, and well deserved. I'm still pretty sad about all this...

Hopefully the band can find another singer to back, they're good and deserve it, but it will be nothing like Midnite/Akae Beka!

Jerry Garcia passed in 1995, Bob Marley in 1981 yet both bands still tour. Akae Beka , the players of instruments must continue on.

I think it would be cool if they continued with another VI artist like Pressure or Army as a backing band or showcase like the Igrade band. Doing a tribute set and a supporting set.

Yes that would be cool.

I've been thinking about how Vaughn's songs are nearly impossible to cover, and how (if at all) we will get to hear them played in a communal setting going forward.

I've been pleased to see all the tribute shows happening around the world. Perhaps DJ tribute nights will continue to be held and these will be the communal spaces where Midnite's music can be enjoyed together.

I was also thinking that screening some of these Midnite concerts at a venue, with the sound blasting through the house speakers, perhaps with some live performances before and/or after, could be a lot of fun....

I would love to see & hear an Akae Beka-IGrade dub set and album. I recently purchased 'Livicated' by Akae Beka-ZIK, and the instrumentation & riddims are top notch! In particular I think the song 'Daughterz and Sons' would make an excellent dub version!
