Thursday night, Tribal Seeds was at the Gas Monkey Bar & Grill in Dallas, Texas. My little brother asked – a few days in advance – if I would like to join him and a group friends at the concert, knowing I live in the area. With tickets being reasonably priced and the bar only twenty minutes away, I accepted his invitation. Although I have enjoyed reggae music for a long time (Bob Marley being a signature voice on my iPod since I first got my player), I had never heard of Tribal Seeds. I could not be more grateful that my little brother introduced me to this group who’s vibe is similar to my favorite icon.
The music was amazing, but, most notably, the artists put on a great show. I do have to admit that I have a favorite from the group. His name is E.N. Young, and he plays on the keys as well as a variety of instruments. Outside of his involvement with Tribal Seeds, he produces his own music. I enjoyed watching him perform throughout the concert, but what sealed his fate as my favorite was his kindness to fans after the concert. Our small group was leaving the bar when we noticed a crowd of people gathering by the front parking lot. Interested, we walked over and there was E.N. passing out free CDs of Tribal Seeds’ summer sampler. He was sweet enough to hug people and stop for photos, and my brother and I were able to take a photo with him – finishing the night with a sweet experience.
