Yup, its hard to believe but Rocksteady 7’s own Larry McDonald will be turning 80 this June!

Larry has had a long and varied career so far. With early gigs with Lennie Hibbert, then Carlos Malcolm’s Afro Jamaicans, playing on a slew of classic reggae tracks in late 1960s and early 1970s, playing with Boris Gardiner Happening, then moving to the states and playing with Taj Mahal, Gil Scott-Heron, and most recently, Lee Scratch Perry. He has played percussion on literally 1000s of tracks at this point!

He is a founding member of Rocksteady 7 and has been at the core of its sound.

We will be doing a special concert for his birthday on June 10th! Expect special guest musician appearances and renditions of some classic tracks Larry has played on over the years!

$8 cover. 2 sets starting around 9:30.

DJ One Hundred Decibels will be spinning classic ska, reggae, and whatever else strikes his fancy!
