Ziggy Marley "Wild and Free"
It may still be a few weeks away, but mark your calendars now for the free acoustic in-store show and signing by reggae great Ziggy Marley at the San Francisco Amoeba on Friday September 23rd at 6pm.
Ziggy was just a young kid when he first caught the music bug from his iconic father, Bob Marley, whose vocal stylings he inherited, while sitting in on recording sessions for now-legendary reggae tracks. Now 42 years of age, Ziggy has amassed quite a catalog himself over a long, healthy career, featuring a dozen of albums with his band The Melody Makers and four solo albums, including his recently released Wild and Free on Tuff Gong Worldwide.
While in the Bay Area, Marley will also be performing the following day (Saturday, September 24th) at the musically diverse (electronic to reggae) Earthdance Global Music Festival at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo, CA. At both events, he is expected to make reference to his recently launched, rasta and weed-themed comic book MarijuanaMan (see preview below).
