Everything is gonna be “irie” when Reggae favorite Winston Irie and Selective Security Band return to SAC to start the summer season of live music on the outdoor stage. A staple on the reggae scene, Winston (Irie) Sumner has performed or shared a concert bill with Lenny Kravitz, A Tribe Called Quest, Richie Havens and others. He has also opened for Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse, and King Yellowman, to name a few. Named one of the 8 most influential local music stars by Hamptons Magazine, Irie, originally from Guyana, came to the Hamptons in 1993 and fell in love with the “island vibe”, which reminded him of home.
“When I’m out here, it’s not about me,” Irie says. “It’s all about the people.” It’s why he’s known for adapting his shows and the band’s lineup of percussion, African drums, bass, and guitar players from one venue to another. As a result, he has never played the same show twice. (KEITH RYAN CARTWRIGHT | July 18, 2014; Hamptons Magazine).
Bring your chairs, blankets, and good vibes and get ready to “kick up rumpus” with Winston! Reservations not required.
In the event of rain, concerts will take place indoors in the theater.
New this year! Refreshments, including full picnic meals, will be available for purchase through the Thyme Truck at all outdoor programs.
