Toots and the MaytalsSpecial GuestShane PhilipToots and the MaytalsYou must at least be aware that theyre one of the most important acts in the history of modern music. No? You werent aware of that? Come on. Back in the day it was pretty much them, Bob Marley and the Wailers and Peter Tosh. That was like the holy trinity of the Jamaican music scene. You didnt know that? How could you not know that? Toots and the Maytals have released over 20 albums of groundbreaking reggae brilliance. They helped invent the genre. Everyone from The Clash and The Specials to Amy Winehouse and Sublime has covered a Toots and the Maytals song. Theyve been rockin the Rastas and Rudies for almost 50 years now and theyre still going strong. Theyre practically the Rolling Stones of reggae. How could a music fan like you not know all that? Well, then you really need to make sure you check out Toots Hibbert and his fabulous Maytals when they hit the stage July 9 at the Commodore Ballroom. The three time Grammy nominated soulful reggae sensation will be busting out the hits. From room shakers like 54-46 Thats My Number and Do the Reggay to dancehall pleasers like Pressure Drop and Monkey Man, Toots and the Maytals will be laying down all that first wave goodness, and then some. I think its exactly what you need to get up to speed. And besides, what better way to welcome in the summer heat than with one of the most celebrated live acts ever to come from the musical Mecca of Kingston, Jamaica? Come hear what youve been missing.Most call it reggae. Others call it ska or rocksteady. A few even call it roots. But everyone calls it soul-tons and tons of soul. Isnt it time you got your Toots and the Maytals education? Sure it is, my friend. Come rock the ballroom. Youre always welcome.
