May 9: General Smiley at Whiskey Tip

Posted By on Thu, May 8, 2014 at 10:00 AM

You know those songs where someone chants over a beat, talking rather than singing? Well, in the genre of dancehall music, that’s called “toasting.” And in the world of toasting, General Smiley was one of the first and remains one of the best. General Smiley is still at it today, currently on a West Coast tour with Ragga Lox and others, and stopping in on May 9 at Whiskey Tip, 1910 Sebastopol Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. 707.843.5535.
