Summer is here and so is Reggae

Ziggy Marley was just in LA visiting different public schools while supporting National Music in our Schools Month. Little Kids Rock organizes this program that brings acclaimed musical artists into the lives of children who’s only other exposure to music is the crap they hear on the radio. Ziggy Marley stuck around the LA area (or maybe he left and came back) for his Earth Day performance on the Santa Monica Pier, which rocked. The English Beat were just up in Nevada City (you’ve probably never heard of them, but they’re awesome), and Luciano was at Crash Mansion here in LA…

Catch my drift? I tend to go a little overboard and plan my summer around whatever festivals are going on, so here’s what I’ve got so far for the Reggae grooves taking root in California this summer… but as we all know, there will be more, oh, there will be more…

Bob Marley was right when he said that his music would live on forever.

P.S. Here’s a picture of Ziggy – jamming with some kids, though I must say, the kids look nonplussed…
