Sevilla Local Media, founder & President, Tommy Sevilla, is a 35 year veteran of the music industry and was a Reggae Music Industry prodigy and pioneer at age 14. Tommy began booking and managing local, national and international music acts, as well as becoming a contributing writer to local music magazines, also stage managing, tour managing, and promoting local concerts and national tours for and with such luminaries or unique talents as: Two-Time JUNO Award-Winning Canadian Dub Poet – Lillian Allen, Mutabaruka & The Sounds of Resistance Band, Eek-a-Mouse, Leroy Sibbles, Pato Banton, Tippa Irie, Rankin’ Scroo, Bass Culture, Joe Higgs, Norman Grant & Twinkle Brothers, Tristan Palma, Phillip Frazer, Boom Shaka, Untouchables, Killer Bees, Blues/Jazz Legend – Phil Upchurch and others.

Many shows of which he partnered up with or assisted friend, Roberto Angotti, of KNAC & KROQ “Reggae Revolution” fame.

Tommy’s original business partner in the music industry, along with Sean Mc Gary was James “Jim” Roppo, Executive Vice-President of Universal Music Group – Republic Records, and of Justin Bieber – “failure to tweet” fame.

Tommy was also a contemporary of long-time friend, Kevin Lyman, founder of the Vans Warped Tour. Contributing to the original Claremont California – Claremont Colleges Music Scene.

 

 

Tommy, recalling the good times of the 1980’s Reggae Scene:

“I have fond memories of my youth as a fan of Reggae Music and being a part of Los Angeles Reggae Music history, especially. I was there at Bunny Wailer’s first state-side appearance in Long Beach, back in the 80’s. I remember vividly, the historic Fela Anikulapo Kuti concert at the Olympic Auditorium, me and champion bubbler, Clinton Dove, watching Fela, with his massive horn section, 2 drummers, and huge harmony vocals secition (all of his many wives), alongside Flea and Anthony Keides of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, also there as young fans.

Alpha Blondy’s first show in L.A. was also monumental.

The late Milt Wilson, truly produced the best shows at that time; the Music Machine was legendary, even a place where I, all but 17 or so and not even allowed in, stepped on Mutabaruka’s barefoot and evoked a “Raaas Claaat” like I never heard before. I would later promote a few shows and spoken word readings with him and his incredible band.

Perhaps the greatest musical experience I ever had though was a show that Me, Jim and Sean produced, the unique Strictly Roots of Northern California at Claremont Mc Kenna College where, it was like Reggae meets the Allman Brothers and every song was a 12 minute, psychedelic lead guitar solo.

I will never forget interviewing Rita Marley and her kids, along with mother Cedella, at the Bob Marley Day Festival, and later in years, smoking a huge spliff with Aston “Family Man Barrett” and the rest of the Wailers, at the Country Club in Reseda.

Licking the 5′ tall, saxophone like chalice, packed with ice and Lambsbread Colli from the Blue Mountains, with Ras Michael, the late Derrick “Debo” Brown, Clive Ross, Zacky and others, was unforgettable, as I was promoting the great Leroy Sibbles that night, backed by Jamaica Inc, at the iconic and legendary Kingston 12 in Santa Monica.

Especially cool was being backstage at the Greek for the 2 night Steel Pulse and Jimmy Cliff shows when, I see Earl “Flabba” Holt standing outside, unable to get in, as his name was left of the guest list by mistake. I was able to convince security to allow him in and ironically enough, had an almost identical experience with Judy Mowatt and her entire entourage at the Universal Amphitheatre for UB40. Me and Clinton Dove, literally watched the show from in and out of the aisle, giving up our seats fro Judy and her posse, repeatedly being warned and pushed back into the seats.

Linton Kwesi Johnson at the Conga Room, was also a one of a kind experience.

Ali, Robin, Astro and Brian Travers, among others like Joe Higgs and Garth Dennis, would be guests of ours backstage at the Whiskey for our show with Eek-a-Mouse, Rankin’ Scroo & Ginger and Ridim Section. Me, Sean and Jim promoted the “King and I” Tour for Mouse in 1987.

We hosted H.R. from Bad Brains at our apartment in Pomona, California, for several weeks. A truly different cat, I still don’t know how or why, but he was with us all that time – on our dime – and barely spoke a word!

Driving home an angry (not at me) Mikey Dread, was also memorable (laughing), and scrapping with Prince Ital Joe, backstage at the Coach House and being followed on the 5 North, is not something me and my bredren Clinton particularly enjoyed.

Ginger, Rankin’ Scroo’s beautiful and talented wife, literally saved my life on tour with Eek-a-Mouse, in Santa Barbara.

How can I ever forget spending time at Roger Steffens’ house with the great Dub Poetess, Lillian Allen, marveling at Roger’s immense Reggae Music Archives.

Me and Tony Montgomery of Bass Culture, are still recovering from our sensi session with Mouse at the motel I put him up at in Pomona. A few warm Guinness and some Humboldt County one-of-a-kind, had us in a nice place, with air conditioning inside and 100 + degree heat outside. We were literally blinded by the light upon exit.

I owe all these fond memories to my uncle Donny, who introduced me to Reggae Music, at about age 12, and longtime friend Tony Montgomery of Bass Culture, who took me to my first Reggae show in Santa Monica, where the Meditations, headlined.

Getting into the business and doing some pretty cool things at a young age and until I was about 20 years old, was due to the mentoring and guidance of Rita “Miss Wire Waist” Harrison (Smoothie’s Auntie) of KPFK – “Sounds of Jamaica fame; a place where Tony, Fred, Donny, Dan and Pablo of Bass Culture, played live, and where we happened to meet the young, rambunctious youngster – a few years older than me – Trevy Felix of Boom Shaka.

Her, Stamma Haughton, Joe Higgs and Stranger Cole, were some of my absolute favorite people in an out of the industry.

I remember walking to the pay phone on 3rd Street in La Verne to use call Jamaica, Birmingham England, Toronto Canada, and other parts of the world, to do my business, with a pocket full of dimes, after running up thousand dollar phone bills!

I can go on and on but know that my memories are fond and great and it’s nice – so many years later – with some refined expertise and wisdom, to develop this site which I hope all will take full advantage of.

I only wish I had something like this when I was in the business.”

Most recently, Tommy has returned to the music scene with Sevilla Local Media’s association with Reggae Dance Hall Artist, Cham, and for the purpose of promoting Cham’s latest release, “Money Wine” and his official website.

Tommy continues to support and contribute to the careers of Lillian Allen, Rankin’ Scroo and Smoothie Jones’ – 213 LA. Rootz Band.

The marriage between Tommy’s Digital Marketing & SEO company and his passion for Reggae Music, is a raging fire that benefits and equips all who share the love of the music.

Tommy, after a secular career in sales and management, recently returned to the world of event promotion as founder of Sevilla Local Media, when he created the cigar-industry website: www.GreatCigarEvents.com , a website created to bring attention to looming FDA Regulations of the Premium Cigar Industry and to promote the Rocky Patel Cigar Yacht Cruise, which also draws attention to Rocky’s charity – The Rocky Patel Foundation.

The last Rocky Patel Cigar Yacht Cruise featured acclaimed indie artist – Marisa Ronstadt. The multi-talented cousin of the legendary, Linda Ronstadt.

Lord willing, Sevilla Local Media will soon launch a similar site that will invite all types of music to join that general music community, among many more, including a site that embodies Tommy’s true passion: Christian Biblical Apologetics.

Having coined the phrase in the early 90’s, Tommy has written “Apologetic Poetry”.

Sevilla Local Media, has recently developed and donated an e-commerce website for non-profit – Jurupa Valley Boxing Club, where Tommy and his 16-year old daughter, Sophia, train. That site is set to launch soon, and is meant to raise money for the gym and it’s athletes.
