SOJA alongside Groundation and Yerba Bruja packed the place to a sold-out crowd of 4000 people on a night that many have been saying was the best reggae concert of the year in PR- Here is what the band thought:

Puerto Rico is a special place for SOJA.  It was our first show outside of the continental u.s., and we try to come back every year.  Every year the shows get better, the fans get better. Saw some fans from the states in the audience too…Big up gomba jahbari, Yerba bruja, the whole crew. Got to kick it in Rincon for a few days and just surf, chill, so nice.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the great reception. See you all next year, way to pack el Anfi…Ease! Gracias por tu ayuda con la musica en el pasado, y por el futuro, viva puerto Rico, viva SOJA!

Fun Times.  When i was a kid going to reggae shows with bobby and bird, if you had told me that the head sound engineer (Luciano “Where There Is Life” tour, Sizzla “Praise Ye Jah” tour, Buju Baton “Till Shiloh” tour) would be running SOJA’s sound…  No Way.  Thanks Soljie for becoming such an integral part of the team.  special thanks to Trevor Young, t rex, for joining as well.
The fans were killer, the venues were awesome, everyone in SOJA grows closer every day, and all good was all good as always.  Thanks to Elliott Harrington setting this tour up, and thanks to the fans for letting us knock it down.  all the practice before the tour paid off.
Ready for Portugal, Germany, Poland, and then back home for PUERTO RICO and some time off.
Working in the studio on the new album as I type this,
thanks to all,
Jacob
