Silverton Casino Hotel welcomes Spring with the re-opening of Sway Pool Lounge
Locals’ favorite pool opens back up for the season with the sounds of reggae
Sway Pool Lounge at Silverton Casino Hotel celebrates its re-opening on Saturday, April 14 at 6 p.m. The event kicks off the Bikinis, Bands and Burgers concert series with food specials for purchase by Johnny Rockets, drink specials and a performance by Grammy Award winning reggae band Steel Pulse at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $30 the day of.
Famed reggae band Steel Pulse takes the stage at the much anticipated re-opening party at Sway Pool Lounge. This reggae band pushed its way onto the music scene in 1978 with the debut album Handsworth Revolution. After a lot of time and hard work, the band’s album Babylon The Bandit won a Grammy for “Best Reggae Album.”
Steel Pulse continued to release hits throughout the ‘80s and contributed the song “Can’t Stand It” to the soundtrack of Spike Lee’s movie “Do The Right Thing.” The group started the ‘90s off with a bang after receiving a Grammy nomination for the live album Rastafari Centennial in 1992. A year later, the group performed at Bill Clinton’s inaugural celebration, which marked them the first reggae band to perform at a presidential inauguration.
This reggae band has released more recent hits, such as 1997’s Rage and Fury produced under Atlantic Records and 2004’s African Holocaust. Steel Pulse will perform some of their biggest hits at Sway Pool Lounge’s re-opening celebration.
