Known as the world ambassadors for reggae music, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley and Peter Tosh were born on the Caribbean island of Jamaica. With his characteristic “universal outlook on life,” Jimmy Cliff is best recognized for top hits such as “Wonderful World, Beautiful People,” “Many Rivers to Cross” and “The Harder They Come.” He is the only living musician to hold the Order of Merit, the highest arts and sciences honour granted by the Jamaican government.
One of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, Bob Marley forged international fame for infusing his music with a profound sense of spirituality. His career started in 1963 with the group The Wailers. After The Wailers disbanded, he pursued a solo career that culminated with the release of Exodus, which brought him unparalleled acclaim. With classics such as “Roots, Rock, Reggae,” “Jammin” and “Is This Love,” Marley continues to entertain audiences worldwide. Another famous member of The Wailers, Peter Tosh revolutionized the reggae scene with controversial recordings such as “Legalize It,” “Coming in Hot” and “Equal Rights.” His career culminated with a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Performance.
The Scotch Bonnet Band is no stranger to the reggae genre. Having backed and shared the stage with legends including Toots Hibbert, Third World, Bob Andy, Congos and more, they will bring years of expertise to the Beat Hôtel stage. Led by bassist Geoff Scott and drummer Nathan Sabanayagam, the group is composed of Boston’s most prominent musicians and will undoubtedly make Cliff, Marley and Tosh proud with their renditions of some of their most popular songs.
