Paste Studio on the Road | Shaggy & Sting

After years of bonding over our shared love of live music, Ilegal Mezcal is thrilled to announce our partnership with Paste Magazine.

Our Greenpoint Showroom is now the New York home for the Paste Studio on the Road, and in 2022 our stage has hosted iconic artists and rising acts. On May 12th, 2022, we had the distinct thrill of hosting two legends, Shaggy and Sting, as they promoted their new record "Com Fly Wid Me," which reimagines the Sinatra songbook in a reggae style.

According to Sting, “This idea of getting my friend to sing ten iconic songs from the Frank Sinatra songbook in a reggae style had been brewing for a while…I know, it sounds crazy! But every time the idea crossed my mind, it made me smile. And what does the world need now, more than anything else…something to smile about!” [from].

Watch the whole performance above, which includes a throwback to Shaggy's unimpeachable classic "Boombastic." Check back for announcements of more to come with Paste Magazine, and discover more about our connection to music, including our Musician's Breakfast series, here.
