On Saturday, February 2, take the opportunity to celebrate Bob Marley and the world of Reggae at Blueberry Hill's famous Duck Room with the Murder City Players!
Since their formation in 1983, the Murder City Players have built a rock-solid reputation in the mid-west as one of the premier American reggae bands. This ten-piece unit, complete with horn section, has been laying down full-force reggae riddims for nearly 30 years. Based in St. Louis, the group is fronted by vocalists Mark Condelliere, a St. Louis native and 'Prince Phillip' McKenzie, native of Montego Bay, Jamaica. The chemistry between Mark and Phillip has been key to the enduring popularity MCP has enjoyed.
This talented and versatile band can easily slip from a ska medley to a dance-hall groove with DJ-style toasting, into a Studio One medley, then cap it off with a set of their own well-crafted originals. Over years of performing, the group has continued to push the limits of their craft. Backing great Jamaican artists in concert like The Itals, The Ethiopian and Daddy U-Roy, the group has learned from some of the best.
The group's first album, "Enter the Musical Arena," was released several years ago on their own Burning Bush label. That album, which yielded the tune "Bitta Bye," was among those selected for "Reggae USA"--The Best of US Reggae, by Reggae Report Magazine.
Blueberry Hill is a landmark restaurant and music club filled with pop culture memorabilia, located in The Loop along the St. Louis Walk of Fame near the Moonrise Hotel. Their famous Duck Room is home to Blueberry Hill’s main stage, where you can catch national touring bands and St. Louis bands many nights of the week (including Rock & Roll legend Chuck Berry once a month!). It is a sensational entertainment room with a 10-foot ceiling, large stage, top-of-the-line sound, and excellent site lines from all viewpoints. It is decorated with duck-themed comics, paintings, decoys, figurines, and photos of Chuck Berry doing the Duck Walk.
