Friday, May 3rd at 9pm, the Inter-Media Art Center in Huntington,
Long Island will host an evening of reggae with reggae legends
TOOTS AND THE MAYTALS.
Nathaniel Hibbert, better known to us as "Toots", has single-handedly
opened an entire genre in music. Part preacher, part Otis-channeler,
eclectic Coptic visionary, songwriter non-pareil and Jamaican
Soul Man #1, Toots is a timeless, legendary, and distinctly
unique musical force who has given monumental joy and epic groove-inspiration
to countless individuals.
with Kingston, Jamaica mates Rally Gordon and Jerry Mathais
a trio was formed in which Toots would take the lead. The name
of the group sounded like a flower but was really a reference
to his hometown of May Pen--the Maytals. Over the last 35 years
they have been both witness and catalyst to the evolution of
ska to the slower, cooler Rocksteady to a faster, brighter more
danceable sound called Reggae. With such hits as "54-46, That's
My Number", "Sweet and Dandy", "Pressure Drop", and "Recoup"
Toots and the Maytals created the very genre of reggae.
and his dedicated musicians, The Maytals have delighted, enlightened,
and inspired, not through preachy didacticism, but through a
truckload of wholesome, funky reggae. IMAC is thrilled to welcome
them back to our stage.
