“It was a pleasant 75 degrees as some of the female employees at Mango's Tropical Café danced to the reggae band behind them playing a mash-up of Shaggy and Steve Miller. "Ladies, are you with me?" crooned the dreadlocked singer behind the stand-up microphone. An enthusiastic "yeah" easily escaped from between their lips, defined by a bold red lipstick.”

“Nineteen years of positive vibes and good music — that's what Jazid will be celebrating this weekend. Party it up at the SoBe hot spot with two days of non-stop reggae and live tuneage from Inna Sense, the Oski Foundation, and Xperimento. Here's to many more!”

“Miami's Ten Best Reggae Acts of All Time 9. Inna Sense Based on cash flow alone, Mango's Tropical Café on Ocean Drive is one of the top venues for reggae music in America, and it's the Miami Beach spot where Inna Sense has sharpened its stage skills for the last 15 years. Band leaders Jimi Dred and Vibert Chang know how to read and rock a crowd so well, they can spot the inner freak in a Pasadena soccer mom from a mile away. Three songs into their show, she's up and singing to every word. And before it's done, the rest of the audience is too.”

“Inna Sense is comprised of an all star line up and its members have worked with well known artists like Mikey Dread, Julian Lennon, Blues trveler, Inner Circle, Lutan Fyer, Maxi Priest, Marcia Griffiths and Kymani Marley to name just a few. Performances as a group and individually have included Reggae on the River, Glastonburg Festival in England, Montreal Reggae Fest, Reggae Sunsplash, many other tours all over Europe and the United States. Now, with the completion of their new release, the band is preparing for extensive touring to bring their music to the world.”

“Another Man by Inna Sense for new Cd release. A ditty Jimi Dred (lead singer, songwriter & keyboardist) wrote about a lady he truly loved and found her 'playing around.' A reverse of roles one might suggest so he said it time to find 'Another Man.' Inna Sense is the longest standing reggae band in the state after their return from Philadelphia & Ocean City Maryland for a ten year stay. They are also the hardest working reggae band out there too. Playing the state every week. Also touring the East Coast from time to time and still visiting their old stomping grounds like Seacrets & working with reggae promoter Jamaican Dave in Philly. Reggae Kulcha is a new compilation series from Kulcha Shok Muzik to promote good songs of either reggae, reggae based or highly influenced by reggae.”

"Innasense. Believe us when we tell you that keyboard player/lead-singer Jimi Dred’s voice was made for reggae music. Seriously, he might be a robot from planet Rastafari, sent to earth to infect us all with his perfect pitch and smooth grooves. Vibert Chang, the other lead-vocalist, adds hype and energy to the mix (think Beanie Man). Add in the drums, guitar, and bass and it’s time to party. Chang even ventured into the audience once or twice to dance with fans while still rocking the mic. They’ll be playing 19 shows this summer in OCMD so if you are heading to the beach this summer, be sure to check them out reggae fans!"

“Without a word or sign, the band assembles onstage, each musician moved by some inner guide, like iron filings before a magnet. The music starts with the same spontaneous ease, effortlessly sliding from one reggae dancehall song to another as if the band were one musician.”
