Recently the Plainwell Music Society asked the community if they could guess WHO THE ARTIST is.
The hint was: Kalamazoo.
THE ANSWER is ...
ZION LION Regge Band from Kalamazoo, Michigan and the SONG is Soul Shakedown!!!!!!!

the Zion Lion website mentions that...
...Zion Lion is the "baddest band to hit the Kalamazoo music scene. The members are a combination of several bands from the Kalamazoo area that crossed each others path along the way and decided to form what we believe to be the right mix of reggae. African zouk, mucosa, zoukous and some Afro-latin influences. Some of the members have had the honor of opening and sharing the stage with local, national and international reggae artists such as Freddie McGreggor, Pato Batun, Winston Jarrett, Culture, Beenie Man, Lucky Dube, Mikey Dread and the Meditations.
These musicians have played in small clubs to large cultural festivals including, the Kalamazoo Island Festival, Kalamazoo Black arts festival, Grand Rapids Caribbean Festival, Muskegon Summer Festival, Louisville Reggae Festival and Rock Island Caribbean Festival to name a few.
You can't help but get up and dance and have an "IRIE FEELIN' " whenever you hear Zion Lion. Read more at the official Zion Lion website http://www.zionlionreggaeband.com
Plainwell President Jay Miller recently was quoted speaking in regards to the reggae groups past performance at the Plainwell Band Shell...
"...Zion Lion - they are a crowd pleaser."
