The Mintones Play The Cafe At Parlor

April 15, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - 1:00 am

Reggae returns to Broadway.

The Mintones will be bringing their reggae with them when they return to Broadway this Friday. They’ll be hitting the stage at The Cafe at Parlor.

Newport This Week says:

Led by guitarist and band founder Mike Minto, the Mintones consists of the following musicians: Doug Earnest on drums,Mike Dansereau on keyboards…Frankie Moniz on sax and guitar, and Grayson Farmer on trumpet. Trumpeter Doug Woolverton also sits in as his touring schedule allows. “This line-up has been together for two years. I enjoy their company and they are people I like to hang out with,” Minto noted.

The Mintones play a mixture of early reggae (Bob Marley and Peter Tosh) along with the more modern reggae influences of Alborosie and Damian Marley.

Minto loves the happiness that reggae music brings to people. “Reggae music is about empty spaces. It’s about what you don’t play. When you leave room for the music to move, it translates into people moving together and forgetting their troubles,” the guitarist said.
