Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at Ship Point Inner Harbour, Victoria's 17th Annual Ska & Reggae Festival will kick off with Pomp and Pride when legendary TOOTS AND THE MAYTALS graces our stage. It was been four years since Toots came to Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival and we can't wait to have him back again this summer! 

Toots and the Maytals are one of the most influential Jamaican rooted bands of all time. The band has helped to chart the course of Jamaican music with unrivaled delivery and dynamism, setting new standards of excellence, and becoming the most enduring of all Jamaica’s groups.

Furthermore Toots Hibbert is one of the great voices of Jamaica; a legend whose career spans every development in Jamaican music, from ska through rock-steady to reggae.

Be sure to pick up early bird tickets as soon as possible before they sellout!

    Toots & The Maytals

    Reggae

    Toots is one of the true architects of reggae, so much so that “Do the Reggay,” a 1968 single by Toots and his group, the Maytals, 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 2004 album “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.
