LITTLE BOSTON — Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band will help The Point Casino celebrate spring break March 16 with their popular reggae music. Fearon and the band take the Event Center stage at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 day of.

The show follows a pole dancing exhibition at 6 p.m.

Doors for the events open at 5:30 p.m.

Fearon is joined by seven musicians from the Boogie Brown Band.

Fearon has played at events such as the Reggae Rising Festival, Bumbershoot, Sierra Nevada Festival and American Folk Festival. His style of reggae is known for its bass riffs.

“My music is roots reggae from the island of Jamaica,” Fearon wrote in his biography online. “I grew up in the hills, up in St. Catherine, surrounded by nature, beauty and hard work.”

“Even as a child, I knew I wanted to be a musician…”

Fearon’s inspiration comes from The Skatalies, Motown artists and Jamaican musicians who came before him.

Fearon’s work includes 10 of his own albums, spanning from 1994 to 2012. His newest album, “Heart And Soul, “ reached No. 20 on World Music Charts Europe in August. See more on Fearon at www.clintonfearon.com.

Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band will continue their tour in Portland at the Wonder Ballroom March 22, and then travel to Canada to play at the Jarvis Street Saloon in Whitehorse, Yukon, March 30.

The Point (www.the-point-casino.com) is owned by the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe. It is located at 7989 NE Salish Lane, off Hansville Road.

In addition to gaming and live entertainment, The Point  has three dining venues: the casual Market Fresh Buffet, the upscale Little Boston Bistro, and Point Julia Deli. The Point is also a showcase of S’Klallam art.
