Toots and The Maytals
Toots and The Maytals brought their upbeat brand of Reggae to the Abacoa Amphitheater in Jupiter, Florida on Sunday night. The warm South Florida evening got a little hotter with one of reggae’s most energetic bands taking the stage.
Led by Toots Hiibbert, the 76-year-old Grammy Award winning singer delighted the crowd with his deep soulful voice and exuberant string of hits to both dance and sing along to.
Recently I had the special opportunity to see the legendary Toots and the Maytals, just a couple of blocks from my house at the Fox Theater in Boulder CO. My work thus far with Grateful Web has been mostly reviewing jam-bands, taking notes on their instrumentation, and reporting commendable jams. So, as you could imagine, this was a much different experience than I was used to.
It was a nice Mother’s day in Boulder, CO, and is there a better way to spend the evening than with the Toots & the Maytals at the Fox Theatre? There seemed to be a good Rasta vibe permeating through the Fox tonight. The bartenders were all smiles as usual, including long time bar tender Spotty, who is the best bartender in the city, and his happy to serve lifestyle was extra vibrant as well.
