@ The Opera House, February 6, 2016
Presented by TD
As we look back on the impact of reggae music around the globe we accept that some of the music’s most iconic performers are gone, but never, ever forgotten….
Jones & Jones and TEN81 Lifestyle are pleased to announce Tribute to The LEGENDS – A JAMBANA™ Black History Month Reggae Jam presented by TD at the Opera House (735 Queen St E, Toronto) on Saturday, February 6, 2016. Doors open at 8PM and show time is 10PM. The show features live renditions of the legends’ catalogues performed by four time Juno Award winner Exco Levi, Chester Miller, Nana Maclean, Universal Music’s Lucas DiPasquale, Mr. Cooper and The Human Rights Band. DJ Joshua Lucas will keep the crowd rocking in between performances with legends’ selections.
An extension of the globally renowned JAMBANA™ One World Festival experience, Tribute to The LEGENDS is a musical ‘Rocumentary’ that pays tribute to the life and music of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Gregory Issacs and Joseph Hill. A dynamic presentation of, music and visual projection celebrates Reggae’s best and gets you up close and personal to the catalogues of the icons themselves. This ‘Reggae Rocumentary’ unfolds with Canada’s finest reggae music acts each performing their rendition of the legends’ hits.
“Tribute to the LEGENDS allows fans the opportunity to connect to the live sounds of some of their favorite music and artists. We’ll never be able to replace the legends we pay tribute to, and that’s not our goal. This is a live show experience with some of today’s top living talent that allows us all to re-live the moments connected to some of the biggest moments in music and culture. TD as our partner is a testament to their support and celebration of our nation’s diversity. We’re thrilled to be creating this experience alongside them”, says Jesse Jones, President & Chief Innovation Officer TEN81 Lifestyle Inc.
Denise Jones, President of Jones & Jones Productions adds, “We are also saluting living legends Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt and Rita Marley. We’ve had the honor of working with all three of these female legends as well as the men with the exception of Bob. This will surely be a night to remember.”
“Tribute to The LEGENDS is a return to what helped make a name for the Jones & Jones brand years ago. The business started by producing live shows and bringing people together in warm and uplifting environments. It feels good to integrate some fresh twists that make it feel very 2016. The Opera House, a venue we’ve used for many shows in the past, also feels like home. We’re looking forward to a fantastic evening”, says Allan Bucka Jones, Co-Founder, Jones & Jones Productions.
