Costa Rican reggae man to open for Los Fabulosos Cadillacs

May 22, 2009

Costa Rican reggae singer Johnnyman has been chosen as the opening act of Tuesday night´s much anticipated show by Argentine band Los Fabulosos Cadillacs at Ricardo Saprissa Stadium, concert promoter Evenpro said.

Set to perform at about 9:30 p.m., Johnnyman is best known locally for roots-style reggae singing with the band Mekatelyu, José Cañas, the Evenpro´s Costa Rica spokesman, told The Tico Times.

Curious music fans can listen to Johnnyman songs such as “Sensi Sensi” and “In Jah We Trust” at the Web site: http://www.myspace.com/mekatelyu.

By contrast, the Argentine group is known for an upbeat sound of reggae-meets-punk-meets-Buenos Aires, featuring blaring horns and thumping carnival drums.

Los Fabulosos Cadillacs are rolling in after a more than six-year hiatus, choosing Costa Rica as the only Central America stop-off on their reunion Satánico Pop Tour 2009.

As of Monday afternoon, Cañas said tickets remained only for VIP (¢30,000) and gramilla (¢20,000) sections, available at www.specialticket.net, Servimás outlets and Bansbach stores, or by calling 2206-7770.
