Jamaican-born artist, Mr. Vegas, is scheduled to perform at Vancouver’s Imperial on October 3, along with the 440 Band featuring Natel and Latty J, as part of the Reggae Euphoria West Coast Tour. From “Heads High” (1998) to the newest “My Jam” (2015), Mr. Vegas has assembled an unshakable string of international classic reggae and dancehall releases including Billboard hits highlighting his career progression for the last two decades.
Born Clifford Smith in Jamaica’s capital city, Kingston, Mr. Vegas first gained recognition with the track, “Nike Air” (1997). Then, one year later, his follow-up smash hit, “Heads High,” reached #1 on the reggae charts in five continents and #69 on the US R&B Chart. The same year, Mr. Vegas won a distinguished Music Of Black Origin Award in the UK. Mr. Vegas has since become an international star, with plenty more accomplishments to date.
In 2010, Mr. Vegas was nominated for Soul Train’s ‘Reggae Artist of the Year.” His album, Sweet Jamaica, was named by Google Music as ‘Top 50 albums of 2012‘, endorsed by Complex Magazine in the ‘Top 100 Albums of 2012‘ as well as on the ‘Best of 2012‘ in the reggae section of iTunes. Mr. Vegas also won Song of the Year with “Sweet Jamaica” and Video of the Year with “Bruk it Down” at the 32nd IRAWMA awards. Mr. Vegas has also collaborated with many internationally-recognized artists, including the Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé for the hit song, “Standing on the Sun” released on her Platinum Edition Album in December 2013.
Throughout the years, Mr. Vegas has proved adept at catchy hooks, knowing just the right beats that will hit at the right time, coupled with signature song writing. Now fans that were blown away by his first performance in Vancouver several years ago will delight in his performance with a full band. Because, if anything has been proven by his 20 year career, it’s that Mr. Vegas is here to stay.

Local reggae, rocksteady, dancehall, and ska band, Purple Soul will be opening for Mr. Vegas. The group's seven veteran musicians draw on such influences as Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals, Skatalites, Desmond Dekker, Gregory Isaacs, Barrington Levy and Dennis Brown.
