#tbt to the green room with the legendary Toots and the Maytals last week with my friend the talented @carlharveymusic who has his own line of guitars @carlharveyinstruments I have to brag for a moment: JA born Carl picked up the guitar at 13 years of age, has 3 Juno Awards and a Grammy to his name & his career in music spans over four decades, from the 70’s when he recorded with reggae immortals such as Jackie Mittoo, King Tubby and Prince Jammy, a decade which for Harvey culminated with Willi Williams’ international smash record Messenger Man & his own first solo album Ecstasy of Mankind, which has become a much sought-after collector’s item. During that time, Carl Harvey joined #CrackofDawn, Canada’s seminal black funk band that has recently reunited for several concerts and an album. The group was originally signed to Columbia Records in 1975 as the first black band to be signed by a major label in Canada… and in 1980 he began working with Toots….and the rest is history!!! See you again soon my friend #SelectressIriela #CarlHarvey #TootsandtheMaytals #reggae #funk @tootsmaytalsofficial #CarlHarveyInstruments #BrooklynBowl #musicislife #djlife #goodvibes

Magical moments. Treasure every one of them! Still on a high from an incredible couple dates on tour with my old friend and inspirational legend himself Toots and the Maytals @tootsmaytalsofficial …50 years in the business, and having overcome so much, created so much, this man is a huge influence on my life & I am thankful for every gem he provides. And the feeling when he listens to my sets and says ” hey that’s my #1 DJ” with his infectious smile is a wonderful feeling. To have his blessing as I continue into year 25 of DJing and working toward a more conscious world and reggae being at the base of so many huge milestones in my life… It’s invaluable and I don’t take it for granted for a moment. It was amazing to reconnect to old friends Van Gordon Martin as well, and check these images by @_peggypardo from day 2! #givethanks #maximumrespect #TootsandtheMaytals #djthoughts #manifestyourdreams #SelectressIriela #Iriela #djlife #irie #BrooklynBowl #globalreggaefamily #CarlHarveyInstruments #VanGordonMartinBand #NYC #SecondWorldMovement ♡
