Natty Nation, a Madison based group, opens the main stage at 2:45pm with the inaugural Caribbean presentation of Reggae music. Natty Nation is a collection of professional musicians from Madison, Milwaukee, Chicago & Minneapolis lead by JAH Boogie (lead vocals and bass) & musical director Aaron Konkol. Natty Nation with over 2 decades of performance experience has backed up reggae legends Lee "Scratch" Perry, Chaka Demus & Pliers and shared the stage with Ziggy, Damian, & Stephen Marley. JAH Boogie and his band's tight but fluid, rootsy but funky, beautiful but gritty, righteous but real vibration is clear to anyone listening on their stereo or live in concert. It's almost impossible not to dance at a Natty Nation show where their overall message is simple: spread the positive vibration.
