One year after his USA visa and work permit were revoked, David Constantine Brooks, better known in the dancehall world as Mavado, will make his first appearance on US soil at the inaugural "Reggae Rhythm & Blues" concert, which takes place at Roy Wilkins Park in Queens on Labor Day Sunday, September 4, 2011.



Mavado made his entry in the music business with the critically acclaimed album Gangsta for Life, which includes hit singles "Fathers Prayer", "Cassava Piece Radio", "Sadness", "Gully Side", and "On The Go (Faster Than Bullet)". In recent months he has been a staple on reggae charts globally, reeking havoc with "Star Boy," "Stulla," "Mad Over" and “Delilah” which is currently enjoying multiple spins on urban stations in the USA. He won the 2010 EME award for "Male Singjay of the Year" and is featured alongside some of rap's biggest stars in the remix of 'Welcome to My Hood' by DJ Khaled.

"This performance by Mavado will be extra special, as it will showcase his musical dexterity and the many sides of David Brooks. Mavado is a rare talent and one of the best we have seen in recent years. He has many great songs and that's the side we are hoping to showcase," event organiser and CEO of Irie Jam Media, Bobby Clarke explained.

Joining Mavado on stage will be Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, singer Tarrus Riley and soca star Machel Montano
