Reggae Icon Dawn Penn plays her first ever club show in Liverpool

Legendary Jamaican artist Dawn Penn will play live at MOJO this Sunday 29th May with a very special and innovative set-up using local artists ‘We the Undersigned’ as her backing band for a special and exclusive show in Liverpool.

Dawn Penn’s earliest recordings were for Prince Buster around 1966. In 1967 she recorded and released the rocksteady single, “You Don’t Love Me” produced by Coxsone Dodd at Studio One. She also recorded “Why Did You Leave” at Studio One, “Broke My Heart” for Bunny Lee, “I Let You Go Boy” and covers of “To Sir with Love” and “Here Comes the Sun”. By 1970 Penn had left the music industry and had moved to the Virgin Islands. In 1987, however, she returned to Jamaica and to music..

In the summer of 1992 she was invited to appear on stage at a Studio One anniversary show, where she performed the song “You Don’t Love Me” with Steely & Clevie as backing musicians. The performance was a success, and she returned to the recording studio to re-record the song for the tribute album Steely & Clevie Play Studio One Vintage. It was released as the single “You Don’t Love Me (No, No, No)” over a year later, reaching the charts in the U.S. and Europe, plus hitting #1 in her native Jamaica, and making #3 in the UK Singles Chart. 

She is on the verge of releasing her new single “City Life” late summer 2011, followed by an extensive world tour.

As an extra special bonus the first 20 paying customers who say they are on the Africa Oye guestlist will receive discounted entry at £6
