Reaching high heights in musical bliss last week it was an honor to play for Toots and the Maytals, @tootsmaytalsofficial legendary reggae father and my reggae family   I started in reggae on 88 9FM in Boston in 1996 and those selections never left me, it flowed out of me straight from the heart! @_peggypardo


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
