Bob Marley birthday bash in Reno

By
From page B6 | February 08, 2013 |

This year to celebrate the birthday of the reggae legend Bob Marley, Jahzilla will be teaming up with some of Reno’s finest talent to bring a very special tribute to one of the most influential artists of our time.

They will be featuring 10 vocalists from different Reno bands of various genres all singing their rendition of one Bob Marley song.

Jenes Carter of Mojo Green, Baldo Bobadilla of Drinking with Clowns, Dave Berry of Jelly Bread, and Carlene Bingham will be among those performing.

The Mojo Green horn section will be added into the mix to bring their powerful sound and complete the 10 piece backing band.

Jahzilla has been bringing reggae music to the Great Basin and beyond for over a decade. They helped create the first Bob Marley Birthday Bash in 2011 and it has been growing ever since. People cannot seem to get enough of Bob Marley’s music even 30 years after his passing.

Along with Jahzilla, Reno’s own Polynesian roots reggae group, Uprising, will perform at the event. They are quickly growing in popularity, earning spots at festivals such as the “One Love, One Heart Festival” in Sacramento and the “Lake Tahoe Reggae Festival” last summer.

Eph Bee Cee is an up and coming band from Reno that plays a Pacific Ocean-inspired strain of reggae that incorporates a variety of other genres and styles into the mix.

DJ Too Dread of “The Reggae Shack” radio show will be keeping the dance floor going all night with a mix of roots reggae, dub and dance hall.

The Third Annual Bob Marley Birthday Bash is Friday, Feb.8 at the Knitting Factory Concert House in Reno. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $8.
