Making some very special selections! So excited – takin the stage tomorrow night going back to my reggae roots w/ living legend & the originator of the term REGGAE itself, #TootsandtheMaytals @tootsandthemaytals at Brooklyn Bowl! Let’s go New York City!!!!! Doors at 6pm sharp – Royal Khaoz will be in the house to nice up the vibes & Advance tickets are sold out, get to the venue early to get yours @ door! 🇯🇲 Swipe –》 for @jimmyfallon teaser of what’s to come tomorrow night!!! . Toots is one of the true architects of reggae –so much so that “Do the Reggay,” a 1968 single by Toots and his group, theMaytals, is credited with giving the genre its name. Classic songs written and recorded by Toots and the Maytals have been covered by the likes of the Clash and the Specials, and the group was featured in reggae’s greatest breakthrough event –“The Harder They Come,” the 1972 film that became an international sensation.The all-star guests on TRUE LOVE range from legends like Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt to younger stars including No Doubt, the Roots, and Phish’s Trey Anastasio. The caliber of these collaborators reveals the impact that Toots has had on several generations of rockers and rappers, while appearances from reggae icons Bunny Wailer and Marcia Griffiths show the respect granted to the man who might be the music’s greatest living vocalist. At the heart of it all is that voice –drenched in soul, rooted in gospel, and still breathtakingly powerful after almost four decades in the spotlight. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pic @_peggypardo #reggaeNYC #SelectressIriela #Toots #reggae #musiclegend #vinyl #roots #dancehall #dub #upful #instagood #djculture #djlfe #vinyljunkie #brooklynbowl

#rewiiind #tbt To moment after my live vinyl set on @ScratchVision holding 1 of the records u hit me off with when we met back @ the radio station I started on. Happy Birthday to you my musical big brother @djscratch! Appreciative to have known you so long – from the steps of 88.9FM in Boston in 1997 (lol could have been 96!) to present day you are a class act and I am continually inspired by yr clear love for the music and the art of DJing. This is what it is all about. When I met you, you told me to keep DJing – as one if very few females in the game at the time, I really appreciated your words. And here we are… x amount of yrs later and so glad I did. Big respect for all you do! #hbd #fbf 🍾 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #happybirthday #djscratch #throwbackThursday #flashback #SelectressIriela #Iriela #foundationdays #goodvibes #1990s #DJCulture #happy #lifteachotherup #bk #createalegacy #onair #radioshow #live #889fm #selfieday
