Friday, February 3, 2023 / 9:30 pm-1:00 am
Marlon Asher is known as the “Ganja Farmer” from his massive international hit song which swept the world in 2004. He is the first reggae sensation out of Trinidad & Tobago and his well-loved here in Gold Country. He has been inspired by some of the biggest reggae artists of all time, such as Dennis Brown, Barrington Levy and the legend himself, Bob Marley. It’s fitting that this show will be the kickoff for Bob’s birthday weekend.
His messages are easily conveyed through the poignant lyrics in his songs “Blessings,” “Give Thanks & Praises,” “Love of Jah” and “Settle Down.” His two biggest hits – “Ganja Farmer” and “Ganja Cowboy” have over 15 million views and downloads.
Redefining the essence of roots and dancehall, Mr. Asher has toured all over the world and taken the stage with the best in the business. This illustrious list includes Damien “Jr. Gong” Marley, Steel Pulse, Junior Reid, Cocoa Tea, Don Carlos, Gyptian, Glen Washington, Luciano, Shaggy & Rayvon, Munga, Turbulance, Beenie Man, Bounty Killa, Sizzla, Buju Banton, Richie Spice, Antony B and many more! Don’t miss this opportunity to see him and a band of reggae assassins slay the intimate space of the Crazy Horse.

He captivates crowds with a smooth blend of reggae and dancehall with a conscious vibe. He currently hosts Positive Vibrations with DJ Treez on 101.5 FM KTKE and the I&I Time Podcast.
