Third World, The Original Wailers Set To Appear At Port Canaveral Seafood Festival On Sunday, Feb. 28
BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Third World, who will appear at the Port Canaveral Seafood and Music Festival on Sunday, Feb. 28, is a Jamaican reggae band formed in 1973. Their incredible sound is influenced by soul, funk and disco.
Third World, one of the longest-lived reggae bands of all time, is beloved by audiences around the world for their seamless mix of roots reggae with R&B funk, pop, rock, dancehall and rap.
While the band played roots reggae, they have also incorporated other styles into their music, and it was the initial influence of The Wailers, who will also appear on Sunday, Feb. 28.
The Original Wailers certainly own reggae chops, for band co-founder Al Anderson was guitarist for
Bob Marley & the Wailers, the group that defined reggae.
Third World’s style has been described as reggae fusion. Singer Bunny Rugs described the band’s sound: “Strictly a reggae band, no. Definitely a reggae band, yes.”
Guitarist Cat Coore said of their music: “The hybrid of various types of music is a natural thing because, by growing up in Jamaica, we know the direct roots of reggae and ska. At the same time we live in a country where you get to hear Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and all the R&B artists.”
Bassist Richard Daley said “we took roots reggae music and put branches on top of it.”
In addition to General Eyes, Central Florida area bands playing at the fest include Lights Out Project, Coastal Breed, Part One Tribe, The Supervillains, Kash’d Out, Heritage Band, Charee White, Cotta, Janna Ivey, Funkle Fester.
To keep concertgoers well-fed, seafood restaurants and vendors from around the country are heading to Port Canaveral to participate in the three-day event.
Arrive hungry, because you will want to try out the many temptations. Gregory Firestone’s Golden Gate seafood, for example, will present 150 feet of drool-inducing seafood, including crawfish, crab legs, alligator, calamari, lobster mac and cheese, and seafood boil, for starters.
“For guests who like their fish properly prepared the British Way, fish and chip specialist The Union Jacks will oblige with fresh fish fried to order and with chips, English style,” said Giles Malone, Space Coast Daily Partner and Port Canaveral Seafood & Music Festival Committee Chairman.
The team from Richard Cockerel’s What’s the Catch will present Key West grilled grouper, island shrimp and pan-seared ahi tuna, among others.
Lobster lovers should make a beeline for Cousins Maine Lobster, where Kevin Townsend’s crew will serve Maine and Connecticut lobster rolls, Cousins lobster tacos, lobster quesadilla, Maine lobster tail and lobster bisque.
Hammerheads from Tampa will offer seafood jambalaya, sautéed scallops, grouper fingers, coconut shrimp, shrimp scampi, fried oyster, and for the guest who wants everything, a seafood platter.
The Cove Merchants’ Association, represented by Fish Lips, Grills, Millikens and Rusty’s, are definitely in the running with a huge array of seafood entrees.
Landlubbers don’t fret, for there will also be plenty of selections to your taste.
To wash all that food down, head to the International Beer and Wine Garden, which in addition to a wide selection of brews and vinos, will also feature cocktails.
The 2016 Seafood & Music Festival at Port Canaveral is sponsored by Cape Canaveral Hospital, Space Coast Daily, Florida’s Space Coast, Bright house Networks, Miller Lite, The Cove At Port Canaveral and Savings Safari.
