Happy Earthstrong Bob Marley!

Last week Friday was Bob Marley’s 70th Birthday so I had to join the festivities 😀 I went to the free  concert at the Bob Marley Museum on 56 Hope Road. I got there late though, because of work, it was from 4-8pm and ended right on time.IMG_1100

When I arrived an upcoming band just finished their performance so the host continued the program and up next was the unveiling of Bob Marley’s renovated 1977 Series III Land-Rover. ATL Automotive Limited, Sandals Resorts International and the Marley family worked with ITC representatives on the two-year renovation project to source parts as far as Africa and England.

I went with a part of the Armshouse crew 😛 Denni, Jovan & Meikle with newcomer Minkah 🙂

The yard space of the museum isn’t very big but it was ok for the venue; I loved the décor. It was packed to capacity lol, people had to stand in the seating area for the One Love Café too.
I missed the performances before 5pm so for me, first up was Iba Mahr who called on Tarrus Riley to do their remix of his song Diamond Sox.

Followed by Runkus 😍 he was burning out the bad vibes with incense. He is an upcoming reggae artiste and a rebel to look out for in 2015.

Most of the performances were acoustic and I loved the vibe 🙂 R.I.P. Robert Nesta Marley.
