Tasman Jude spread peace and love through reggae music

Winter may be cold in Grande Prairie where Tasman Jude come from, but the reggae band were all about peace and love and warming the cockles of hearts as they showed at the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Nov. 12.Tasman Jude's Caleb Hart, Al Peterson and Bethanie Earle. Photo by Richard Amery
 They had a whole lot of soul and reggae grooves from bassist Derek Wilder and lots of rhythm as lead singer Caleb Hart and brand new percussionist Bethanie Earle tapped out toe tapping rhythms together.

 Hart sang with a lot of heart and dollops of soul, sounding like Blues Traveller’s John Popper singing reggae music.
 Guitarist Al Peterson grooved and sang back up harmonies.

 They got the decent sized crowd to sing from the start adding  lots of oohs and ahhs.

 Most of the set focussed on jams from  their new CD Green, beginning from beginning to end with the first track “Zion” and “ Yahweh” which set a spiritual, positive and positively uplifting tone to a chilly night.
“The band’s namesake “Tasman Jude” was a highlight of the quick, hour long set.
