Double the Dreadlocks
With all the buzz about little brothers Damian and Stephen, some folks might forget Ziggy Marley started the whole talented-progeny thing in Bobs clan. He even pops up at the tail end of Stephens video for The Traffic Jam, wearing a jacket with his name emblazoned on the back, just to remind you who the biggest bro is.
The oldest son of Bob and Rita performs music that is less dancehall-influenced than his siblings his sound sways closer to lilting world music rhythms, his songs served with a broad smile and a positive message. At todays Jazz on the Bay IslandFest, Ziggys melodies will float over the audience on the cool oceanfront breeze. Rounding out the lineup will be Jamaicas veteran soca-loving band Byron Lee and the Dragonaires, as well as hot new band Crossovah. Admission is free, so roll on down to Peacock Park. The show takes place from 2 to 11 p.m. Visit www.islandfestmiami.com. If night falls and youre still hungry for sweet reggae-inspired music, head to the Raleigh Hotel (1775 Collins Ave., Miami Beach) for a poolside Moon over Miami party. Therell be Lucid Absinthe Supérieure and Vosges Haut Chocolate, and at 12:30 a.m., our favorite eclectic Barbadian singer/songwriter, Fitzroy, will serenade you by starlight. It takes place from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Visit www.yellowcourtyard.com.
