Melo Productions is pleased to welcome Shaggy with special guests Mostly Marley to the Commodore Ballroom on Saturday, September 16th .

With a commanding presence, a distinctive voice that is recognizable throughout the world and titles such as artist, businessman, philanthropist and Grammy Award winner, Shaggy is a force to be reckoned with. In 1993, Shaggy exploded on the music scene with his debut album PURE PLEASURE. His remix of the Ska classic Oh Carolina from that album was an instant hit in England and other countries. Shaggy followed up with his sophomore album BOOMBASTIC in 1995 which went certified platinum, won a Grammy Award in 1996 for Best Reggae Album and topped an impressive chart list that included the Top 40 Rhythmic charts, Hot 100 and Billboard 200.

Fast forward to 2000, Shaggy released his fourth album HOTSHOT which went Diamond worldwide and Platinum 6 times in the United States. Notable singles from that album included It Wasn’t Me and Angel. It Wasn’t Me received a Grammy nomination. Single Luv Me, Luv Me featuring Janet Jackson was released on the soundtrack for the movie “How Stella Got Her Groove Back.” The album also won best-selling album at the 2002 Juno Awards.

In 2002 and 2005 Shaggy released LUCKY DAY and CLOTHES DROP respectively. LUCKY DAY went certified Gold while the single Strength Of A Woman made the Top 40 mainstream charts. CLOTHES DROP received a Grammy nomination for Best Reggae Album. In between recording LUCKY DAY and CLOTHES DROP, Shaggy co-starred in the Action thriller “Blast” alongside Eddie Griffin and Vivica Fox in 2004.

INTOXICATION was released in 2007 and debuted at number 1 on Billboard’s Top Reggae Albums chart, was nominated for Best Reggae Album at the 51st Grammy Awards in 2008 and was the number 1 download on UK iTunes Reggae chart. The first single, Church Heathen, from the album peaked at number 1 on various music charts and won the Best Music Video at the International Reggae and World Music Awards in 2008. That same year, Shaggy recorded and released the single Feel The Rush which was used as the original anthem for the UEFA Euro Cup.

2012 saw Shaggy receiving yet another Grammy nomination for his tenth studio album, SUMMER IN KINGSTON. The eight track album featured lead single Fired Up (Fuck the Rece$$ion!) with rapper Pitbull. The second single, Sugarcane, proved to be 2011’s summer anthem and was in rotation on all major radio stations worldwide.

Starting the evening off is Tonye Aganaba & The Foundation which is a funk soaked R&B/Soul band based in Vancouver BC. Since the band's inception in 2011, they have opened for such legends as Ziggy Marley, The Skatalites, and Yellowman. Their ability to mix the best of classic soul with new school party vibrations keeps the floor packed and the energy high!
