Midnite Delivers its Message to Denver

Midnite - Bluebird Theater ~ Denver, Colorado
March 4, 2010


Thursday March 4th, 2010 Midnite took the stage at the Bluebird Theatre in Denver Colorado, at 11:30PM, on rough count this was my 31st Midnite show.

Midnite, the band consists of two brothers Vaughan Benjamin (words & vocals), Ron Benjamin (bass & vocals), and their current hand picked roots lineup of musicians in awe of the Benjamin’s vast catalog of roots music which are Sly Molina-Curet (drums), Edmund Fieulleteau (guitar), Edwin Byron (guitar), and on Ras L. (keyboards). Midnite as a band and Vaughan Benjamin as the roots soul messenger are at the top of their game with Vaughan having over 40 CD’s to the Midnite name. For Midnite it is about spreading true unadulterated roots musical message. Midnite’s music is raw, yet refined to the simple elements that make reggae roots music the power of…….. words and sound. Vaughan is the lyricist and the vocalist that can deliver a mesmerizing roots message to fans present and willing to accept the message.

For the Bluebird Theatre show the songs that served as the starting point for Midnite to vibe them into more than a song but a message. Songs included, with CD they are from: 1-He is Jah (He is Jah) 2-King of Kings (Rule the Time) 3-Give Her Her Due (What makes a King?) 4-Bless (Nemozian Rasta) 5-Pagan, Pay Gone (Ras Mek Peace) 6-Native Story (What makes a King?) 7-Listen (Rule the Time) 8-Ras to the Bone (Jubilees of Zion) 9-True King (Ainshant Maps) 10-White Collar Criminal (Jubilee of Zion) 11-Bushman (Unpolished) 12-Royal Lion (??) 13-I Chant (Kayamagan) 14-Due Reward (Unpolished)

Highlights of the show where the two new songs that Midnite executed with new energy “Give Her Her Due”, and “Native Story” from “What Makes a King?” these songs showcased the vocal power of Vaughn in a mellow vibe. The Bluebird proved to be a classic Midnite performance that ended at 1:30AM in the morning. Midnite drenched the crowd in the true roots reggae form that cannot be recreated, with a serious and sincere message for those willing to accept it. Many Midnite Fans from Denver and beyond accepted this message.
