When one hears the name Yellow Dubmarine, he or she is immediately taken back to classic rock of the sixties and one of the most popular bands of all time.

Paul McCartney and John Lennon were fortunate enough to have lived through their glory days and still be alive to witness all of the fruits of their labor, which include an overwhelming amount of covers. Although they are in fierce competition with many other tribute bands, Yellow Dubmarine has taken a very unique approach to their idolization of the Beatles.

The sixties were a very busy decade in the world of music. While members of the Beatles were rehearsing, practicing and performing in Liverpool, a new sound called Reggae was being born in Kingston, Jamaica. Nearly 40 years later, the two very different sounds consolidated and formed Yellow Dubmarine.


Guy Harrison & Cartier Sims

A project for my multimedia storytelling class recently led me to the Westcott Theater where I went to cover rappers, Cartier Sims and Guy Harrison, as they opened for The Dean’s List and OnCue’s Pledge to Rage Tour.

The venue was very small. The sticky beer-covered floors and the small standing room were reminiscent of a place that I frequented at home for different shows. There were no more than 50 people in attendance around the time that I left.

An upstate New York rapper by the name of Apache Chief performed the first set. During his set, there were no more than 20 people in attendance, many who were clearly just waiting for later performances. Apache Chief performed a very energetic set, although he seemed to be the only one who was into his music. After his set, only two fans approached him.
