MORGAN HERITAGE: REGGAE FAMILY STYLE

Saturday's reggae concert at Emile Griffith Ballpark is definitely family entertainment. The featured performing group, Morgan Heritage, is made up of five multi-talented children of veteran reggae star Denroy Morgan — Gramps, Lukes, Mr. Moro, Peter and Una Morgan.
Their blend of urban roots/rock/reggae reflects a strong family bond that is enabling them to make a unique impact on the fast-growing reggae industry. And theirs is a collective voice against violence.
According to Una Morgan, "Our message is that life is a miracle and a gift from God, and what we do with our lives is our gift in return. We want to inspire people to value life."
The group's latest album, "Don't Haffi Dread" on the VP label, was released in March. All 18 tracks were produced by the legendary Bobby "Digital" Dixon. They include "Reggae Road," "Send Us Your Love," "Heart of a Child," "Earthquake" and the title track.
The group, which has been called the Royal Family of Reggae, is appearing on St. Thomas as the headliners of "Love Peace Tour 1999" being presented by Judgment Promotions. Also booked for the concert Saturday are Denroy Morgan himself, Basalie, Bashan, Heartless, Ikarus, Jahman, Jahson, LMS, Psycho Dan, Ricky-T, Saint, Singing Legend and De Woe. St. John's Inner Vision will also perform.
The concert is scheduled for 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the gate. They're being sold at the Modern Music stores, Foot Action in Tutu Park Mall and Kikumba Cha on Fireburn Hill.
