On August 22nd, Irie G packed the house on a Reggae Wednesday night at Winston's OB, a neighborhood weekly destination hosted by renowned reggae DJ Carlos Culture of alt-radio station 94.9. His San Diego-based All–Star band for the night included Carlos Liera on trumpet, John Herb on trombone, Ty Kiernan on percussion, Kaya Hall (K-Skunk) on guitar, Jehua Evans on keys, Felix on bass, Nina Anctil and Maria Connors on back up vocals, Sammy Roots on drums and, of course, Gregory "Irie G" Cryns leading the pack on lead vocals and guitar. As a hometown show, naturally everyone in Ocean Beach came to support!
