With an international reputation built on residencies at legendary venues like NYC’s The Knitting Factory, singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ King Django took his popular, long-standing “Version City Party” to the road in late 2012. On the first Version City Tour, Django introduced The Snails to the East Coast, covering 10 states with 30 shows. On Version City Tour #2, Django, North Carolina powerhouse Brian Hill of Regatta 69, John DeCarlo of Westbound Train and drummer Anthony Vito (Broadcaster, Royal City Riot) played 25 shows in 24 nights down and up the coast, while part three was a quick, northeastern 8-night mini-tour featuring Django and his NJ buddies Predator Dub Assassins.

Version City Tour #4 is being assembled and booked now!

King Django has toured extensively as the founder and leader of both Stubborn All-Stars and Skinnerbox and sideman for the Slackers, The Toasters, Rancid and Murphy’s Law. He has been running the influential Stubborn Records and Version City labels since 1992. As highlighted in the popular indie documentary “Brooklyn Rocksteady,” Django assembled the Version City recording studio in 1997, which rapidly became the hub of the NYC ska and reggae scene. In 2014 he was invited to perform at the Institute of Jamaica’s Music Museum in Kingston, Jamaica, taking the stage with reggae luminaries Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, Ras Michael, Big Youth, and Junior Reid.

Version City Tour will perform as part of the Sunset Concert Series on Thursday, June 22 at Turley Park in Carbondale.
