Zion LionOne of the twentieth century’s most iconic cultural figures, Bob Marley was responsible for popularizing reggae music throughout the world. His concerts set attendance records that still stand today, and his 1977 Exodus album was hailed by Time magazine as the greatest album of the 20th century. His unique blend of politically conscious lyrics and unforgettable melodies won him legions of fans far beyond the Caribbean. But Marley was no mere pop star: his strong attachment to Rasta beliefs and his fierce hostility to the injustice of “Babylon” made him an important spokesperson for the dispossessed all over the globe.

Performers paying their respect to the king of Reggae music at the ALL AGES show will be Reader's Choice Award honorery, Zion Lion. Caribbean craft vendors will be on site selling their goods.

Even though Bob Marley has been gone for 31 years, his music and message is bigger than ever. Time Magazine in their “Best of the Century Editions” recognized Bob’s as one of the Top 25 Entertainers who had the biggest influence on music in the 20th century.  Bob was honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 2001 Grammy Awards honored Bob with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. “Legend” Bob’s greatest hits album remains in Billboard magazine’s top ten “Pop Catalog Albums” chart some twenty years after his death.  Jackson Browne performed Bob’s “Redemption Song” at the grand opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in which he is a member. The BBC honored his “One Love” as the song of the millennial.  Bob Marley’s music and more important his message of peace, love and unity will be as applicable 100 years from now as they were 30 years ago.
