Legalize It: A Tribute to the Life and Music of Peter Tosh

As part of our “40th Anniversary Concert Series”The Cabooze Music Venue is proud to present Legalize It: A Tribute to the Life and Music of Peter Tosh featuring the International Reggae All-Stars and Innocent.  The show will take place on Friday, October 17th, 2014 at The Cabooze917 Cedar Avenue in South Minneapolis.  Doors open at 8:30 PM and the music begins at 9:30 PM.  Tickets are $10.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door, and this is an 18+ show.  Advance tickets are available atwww.cabooze.com, The Joint Bar, The Electric Fetus, Down in The Valley, Know Name Records, Discland-Bloomington, and Cowboy Jack’s Plymouth & Bloomington locations.  

Internationally renowned reggae artist Peter Tosh was born Winston Hubert McIntosh on October 19, 1944, in Westmoreland, Jamaica, to a pair of parents too young to raise him. Instead, Tosh was raised by his aunt in Grange Hill. Early in his childhood, and inspired by American radio stations, Tosh exhibited a talent for singing and learned how to play guitar.

In the early 1960s, Tosh moved from the countryside to the Trench Town slum of Kingston and began selling sugarcane juice from a cart. In was then that he met Robert Nesta Marley (Bob Marley) and Neville O’Riley Livingston (Bunny Wailer). All three began visiting voice teacher Joe Higgs, and, as they developed their musical talents, decided to form a band called The Wailers in 1962.

The trio started out playing covers of American pop hits. As they slowly rose to fame, The Wailers’ sound changed and they became “masters of the slinky, driving rhythm known as reggae,” according to the Review of Books. By the early 1970s, The Wailers, who had expanded by several new members, were, according to an article in The New York Times, “the most popular and admired of all reggae groups.”

From its inception to the present, The Wailers band has sold more than 250 million albums worldwide and, in England alone, released more than 20 chart hits, including seven Top 10 entries. But Tosh, along with Bunny Wailer, left the group in 1973. Tosh began producing his own music. He released his solo debut, Legalize It, in 1976 with CBS Records company. The following year he released the album Equal Rights. Both albums were a testament to Tosh’s belief in the Rastafarian religion, to which he had converted in years prior, and his endorsement of marijuana legalization.

Tosh’s solo work caught the attention of Rolling Stones members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, who signed him to their own label in 1978. They also appeared with him on his Bush Doctor album; Jagger performed a duet with Tosh on the Temptations’ hit “(You’ve Got to Walk and) Don’t Look Back.” The collaboration introduced Tosh to a larger audience.

As his career took off, Tosh began traveling the world, but he returned to Jamaica often to see family and friends. He was killed there on September 11, 1987, at the age of 42.

Reggae fans and artists mourned Tosh’s death, but celebrated his legacy. He is still known as the most controversial member of The Wailers, according to The Jamaica Gleaner newspaper, which wrote that “he ruffled many a feather with his unapologetic stance on issues [such as] black liberation and the legalization of marijuana.”

Tosh’s son, Andrew Tosh, walked in his father’s footsteps and rose to fame as a reggae artist himself. He and other members of Tosh’s family continue to hold commemoration concerts and celebrate the anniversary of Tosh’s birth and rise to success.

The Cabooze Presents: Yellowman

The Cabooze is proud to present Reggae Dancehall legend Yellowman.  The show will take place on Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 at The Cabooze917 Cedar Avenue in South Minneapolis.  Doors open at 8:30 PM and the music begins at 9:30 PM.  Tickets are $10.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door and this is an 18+ event.  Advance tickets are available at www.cabooze.com, The Joint Bar, The Electric Fetus, Down in The Valley, Know Name Records, Discland and Cowboy Jack’s Plymouth & Bloomington locations.  For more information please call The Cabooze at (612) 338-6425.

 

King Yellowman has an incredible history in Reggae music. His upbringing at the Maxfield Home orphanage in Kingston, and being albino in Jamaica, were two obstacles the he overcame and went on to be the biggest reggae artist since Bob Marley.

After winning a talent contest at Tastee Patties in Kingston, Yellow went on to excite reggae crowds all over Jamaica and the rest of the world with his boastful and sometimes bodacious lyrics. His ability to ride rhythm and excite a crowd made Yellow an instant hit in Jamaica. He also began to work with the Ace Sound System in St. Thomas and drew big crowds at his dancehall performances. Later in his career, Yellow began to spread out and work for a number of different producers, sometimes releasing as many as five albums per year. This led to a recording contract with CBS Records.

After an extended leave of absence from the record industry, Yellowman began his comeback with the song “Blueberry Hill”, and his career was re-launched. His first album for RAS came from producer Phillip ‘Fatis’ Burrell and was called "Yellow Like Cheese". Coincidentally this was the start of a long and fruitful relationship with RAS and Yellowman and also RAS and ‘Fatis’ and his exterminator production. Yellowman’s live performances are legendary, and he continues to spread his unique energy and positive vibes across the globe.
