      Don't miss this special Peter Tosh Birthday Bash featuring Reggae Legend HALF PINT, Andrew Bees (Of Black Uhuru), King Hopeton & The Yellow Wall Dub Squad.

      Half Pint’s diminutive stature belies not only his vocal capabilities but also camouflages his huge on-stage presence, often described as no less than explosive and dynamic. Born Lindon Roberts, but affectionately called Half Pint, he is a product of the West Kingston enclave of Rose Lane, a community in adjacent proximity to Trenchtown which has produced the likes of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh, Lee “Scratch” Perry, Toots Hibbert and a host of other international Reggae superstars.

      Half Pint began singing in the school choir at All Saints’ Primary School. Upon completion of his secondary education in 1976, he made a head-on thrust into Jamaica’s music industry. Pint toured the island with various sound systems including Black Scorpio, Jammys, Gemini, Lee’s Unlimited and Killimanjaro, earning respect along the way as a talented vocalist and performer. Lindon Roberts was sought by and subsequently worked with top producers such as Errol (John) Marshall; Errol (Myrie) Lewis; Prince (King) Jammy; the rhythm twins, Sly and Robbie; George Phang; Jack Scorpio, Bobby “Digital” Dixon and Mass Hugh to name a few. He also lent his vocal talent to local peers like Garnett Silk, Tony Rebel and The Tamlins among others.

      Cost: 20.00 to 25.00
