RAS Records' Dr. Dread receives a Lifetime Acheivement Award!

On February 29, Gary Himelfarb, a.k.a. Dr. Dread, was honored with the prestigious  "Lifetime Achievement Award." The award, sponsored by Air Jamaica, was presented to him by the ARMA Reggae Music Awards in Washington, DC. In 1998, RAS Records was the recipient of the "One Love-Bob Marley Award," and in 1997 was deemed "Producer of the Year." The award ceremony and dance, held at the Ascot Nightclub, was  well-attended by the RAS Crew and area radio and media personalities as well as acclaimed Roots Radics bassist Flabba Holt and Junior Marvin! The former Wailer graciously sang a few Marley tunes to warm the audience up for DC's own DKGB. Congratulations to Dr. Dread for being given the evening's highest award- well deserved!
