Bob Marley, dead. Peter Tosh, dead. Jah rest their souls. Bunny Wailer is 73. These guys may be good, but “original” I and I don’t think so.

The show was amazing. The price was very low at the gate and the acts that were booked were very talented. My friends and I had a great time and are looking forward to next year. Junior Marvin still rips it on the guitar!
