The Human Rights – Old School Track

July 31, 2015

It’s the long weekend and Caribana is upon us!  When I used to live down on Queens Quay, this was my favorite time of year because of the annual Island Soul festival held across the street from my building at Harbourfront Centre.  The Saturday night always featured a great reggae headliner (Tony Rebel and Barrington Levy […]
