The event is being staged by the Plant a Life Foundation, an environmental group.

Louie Culture, Rootz Underground, and Di Blue Print band, and Nomaddz are also scheduled to perform at the show which starts at 9:00 pm.

Julius Chin Yee, long-time manager of the ‘Revealers’, told the Jamaica Observer that the band has been in the recording studio cutting songs for a new album. They are expected to tour Europe in the summer, he said.rootz_underground

“This is the first time Jamaica is going to get a taste of the band in about 15 years and they (the band) are looking forward to it,” Chin Yee said.

The band retains three original members: lead singer, rhythm guitarist and chief songwriter Billy ‘Billy Mystic’ Wilmot; bassist Leroy Edwards; and drummer Nicky Henry. Theodore Bernard is on keyboards.

Mystic Revealers was formed in Bull Bay, St Thomas, in 1977.

The song, Saw You Smiling, set the tone for a clutch of well-received albums such as Jah Works which included the hit songs Religion and That’s Life.

For a time, Mystic Revealers were signed to RAS Records, the Washington DC-based independent company that distributed Jah Works. They were also signed to Mesa Bluemoon Records, an affiliate of Atlantic Records.
