Raggae Rocks The Santa Monica Pier Thursday Night

By Lookout Staff

July 26 -- The music of two raggae legends will be showcased on the Santa Monica Pier Thursday night as part of the Twilight Dance series.

The “Tosh Meets Marley” world tour is a traveling road show that combines the mastery of the musicians who developed the sound behind the powerful lyrics of legendary Jamaican icons Bob Marley and Peter Tosh; songs that have shaped and built, and continue to define, a worldwide social movement and musical genre.

The 10-member band is fronted by internationally acclaimed bass player, Fully Fullwood, of Tosh’s Light, Sound and Power band, and Junior Marvin, Marley's guitarist.

Along with a host of other Reggae all-stars, Fullwood and Marvin continue the work of Tosh and Marley, whose songs of freedom from economic and political control and religious and racial intolerance have inspired millions around the world. This will be the first of many sing-a-long nights this summer on the pier.

The Santa Monica Pier is located at the intersection of Colorado Avenue and Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. The Pier strongly recommends walking, biking and using mass transit to get to the concerts as parking near the Pier is limited. The concerts will offer free valet bike parking to our patrons at the western entrance to the shows.

For those who insist on driving, parking is available in beach parking lots located at 2030 Barnard Way and 1550 PCH, both accessible off Ocean Avenue south of the Pier. The 2030 lot is a short walk up the beach path from the Pier.

For bus information, please visit www.bigbluebus.com and www.MTA.net or call 310-451-5444.
