Sly and Robbie, the dynamic duo, or the 'Riddim Twins' as they are popularly known, will create reggae music history with Sizzla tonight at the Sizzla Unplugged and Acoustics show at Club Privilege.

Due to a hectic schedule, with recent tours of New Zealand, South America and just-concluded sold-out stints with Monty Alexander in New York City, The Riddim Twins hardly get the opportunity to play in front of Jamaican audiences on the rock. When not touring, they are almost always in the studio working on major projects for artistes.

Tonight, lucky patrons will get an up close and personal session with the global icons.

Despite their relentless globetrotting, it is always special for them to bring their world-renowned art to their home crowd. Doing a few songs with Sizzla with the 'Unplugged' vibe and being intimate with their home-based fans makes it even more magical for them.

Whirlwind Entertainment, the company that created the event, is extremely appreciative that Sly and Robbie took time out for this appearance.

CEO Michael Dawson enthusiastically stated, "Though this is a business and a charity-driven event, as a fan of reggae music, you can't help but be excited to be a part of reggae music history.

"Imagine, Sly and Robbie and Sizzla on the same stage doing it unplugged and acoustics style. Wow!

"When violin sensation Jessica Yap and Sizzla's Firehouse crew is added to the equation, we could be talking about the show of the year already."

This is an exclusive event, VIP entry by invitation only. Presold tickets are $2000; $2500 at the door. Presold tickets are available at Club Privilege, Total gas stations - Liguanea and Washington Boulevard, and Bourne's Texaco.
