Ziggy Marley Performs at Local Elementary School!

This weekend I was privileged to see Ziggy Marley performing at the Cowan Avenue Elementary School in Westchester.  The afternoon was a fundraiser, with a bake sale, silent auction, the whole nine.  With a scaled-down version of his regular band, Marley performed about 5 songs from his new album, Family Time, and threw a "Three Little Birds" in there for good measure. The thousand or so kids present were mesmerized, and Ziggy never stopped smiling the whole time.  Here are some photos of the event.  Enjoy!

Yours truly, a semi-big kid at heart.

"Lift up your hearts with a smile..."

"Lift up your feet with a dance..."

"Lift up your spirits with a song..."

"It's family time!" - Ziggy

"Don't worry about a thing..."

"'Cause every little thing gonna be all right!"

"Rise up this morning, smile with the rising sun..."

"Singing sweet songs of melodies pure and true..."

"This is my message to you!" - Bob

Missed Topanga Earth Day?

Don't worry...I reviewed it for you on JamBase.  Wasn't that thoughtful of me?
