Bob Marley’s 70th Birthday Bash

Reuters_Bob Marley 70th birthday bashReggae legend Bob Marley would have been 70 on Friday, February 6, 2015. Jamaicans celebrate the birthday of their native son every year, including festivities at the Bob Marley Museum. This year, the museum, which sits on the property of Marley’s former home, hosted an afternoon/evening concert, featuring big reggae names in JA, such as Chronixx and Kabaka Pyramid.

I attended the Friday concert, and Reuters, for which I freelance in Jamaica, used one of my photos of the event. The turnout was good, and the characters were colorful. Rastas all around, and ganja always in the air, just like in Marley’s day.
