Sealegs presents: Reggae Sundays with Kyle Smith
On the sands of Bolsa Chica, life returned back to normal for a day. It was Sunday, March 21st and tent after tent of joyous locals lined the pathway across Huntington Beach. People were BBQing and cooking up food to share with their friends and family as the sun beamed down, warming the sand, with a slight refreshing breeze.
Laughter filled the air as new and old friends met up with each other.
The roar of stories being exchanged was deafening. As the huge crowd poured into Sealegs at the Beach, the smiling faces eagerly waited for Kyle Smith to take the stage. The smell of beer, sunscreen and marijuana filled the air. As Kyle Smith came on to perform, alongside Scotty Brown and Christopher Nishida, the crowd erupted in cheers. This was a special moment, for roaring crowds seemed like a thing of the past.
The next few hours flew by. Kyle covered Sublime, Pepper and even a version of Ludacris’s “Blueberry Yum Yum”. Aaron Wolf, Kyle Rising (of Sensi Trails), Dread Kennedy, Shakamon and Sammy Dread (of LakeDub) were just a few guests that rocked out with Kyle, as new, unreleased songs were dropped on the dancing crowd.
This was one Reggae Sunday that many people will not forget for a long time! Cheers to Sealegs, Kyle Smith and to the return of live music!!!
