Singer and Marine Corps veteran, Orville Burrell, better known as “Shaggy,” performed for service members and residents at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, July 26, 2017.
The performance brought station residents together to enjoy Shaggy’s live music concert that also featured some of his hit songs such as “Boombastic,” “It Wasn’t Me” and “Oh Carolina.”
“The atmosphere of all the service members coming together in a unified love for Shaggy was awesome,” said U.S Marine Corps Sgt. Christopher Pietz, an MCAS Iwakuni resident. “The concert was incredible. Shaggy is an amazing showman.”
With an almost full house, Shaggy said he enjoyed performing for the service members and station residents.
“I think there’s a certain amount of enthusiasm and energy that comes with that audience … it is rewarding,” said Shaggy. “They just give you that vibe.”
Shaggy toured three different military installations in Japan with Armed Forces Entertainment going from Camp Hansen, Okinawa, to Naval Air Station Atsugi, Japan, and finishing the tour at MCAS Iwakuni….
