**GENERAL ADMISSION / 19+**


Producer, mixer and Grammy-winning reggae dub artist, Lee “Scratch” Perry is set to perform at Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom on September 15, 2016.

Lee “Scratch” Perry has been overturning tradition and confounding conventional wisdom for more than five decades. Born in Jamaica in 1936, Lee Perry began in the music business in the 1950’s and by the 1960’s became known for his innovative production techniques as well as his eccentric character. His first single "People Funny Boy" in 1968 was notable for its innovative use of sampling as well as a fast, chugging beat that would soon become identifiable as "reggae.”

Perry spent time in England and the U.S., performing live and making records with a variety of collaborators including The Clash and Public Image. These collaborations continue to this day, with Keith Richards, George Clinton, Dub Is a Weapon, and many others. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Perry on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

Lee “Scratch” Perry, now into his sixth decade as a pop-music provocateur, has few peers when it comes to fresh ideas and their implementation. He remains one of the world’s most imaginative sonic architects, and is sure to amaze Vancouver audiences this fall.
