To anyone who’s familiar with Inner Circle’s 20-year-plus history in the reggae field and their immense popularity around the world-there’s much more to Inner Circle than what meets the eye. Indeed, this Jamaican-bred, Grammy winning quintet is one of the world’s most respected reggae groups with a long string of successes stretching back to the mid-70′s. Inner Circle’s special brand of pop-oriented Jamaican beats and energy -filled live performances have allowed the band to transcend the traditional reggae niche and enjoy widespread crossover appeal. A testament to this is the fact that Inner Circle plays at many of the world’s largest music festivals-headlining alongside such towering pop and rock music icons as Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Van Morrison, Sinead O’Conner, The Black Crowes, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, Carlos Santana, and many others.

Along the way, the group has withstood two-and-a-half decades of triumph and tragedy, thanks to a shared belief in music’s power to unite and heal, and to the intensely loyal sense of family that’s kept the band vital through some turbulent times.” In 1978, while playing for the now infamous Reggae Peace Concer, the band achieved a major breakthrough when Chris Blackwell signed the group to Island Records. That same year, they achieved substantial commercial success with the Island album Everything Is Great, which became a Top 20 hit in the U.K and a Top 10 smash in France, and produced the popular singles “Mary, Mary” and “Music Machine.”

Backstage at Jamaica’s Joyous Bob Marley Birthday Celebrations

Reggae’s biggest stars celebrate the late singer’s life with a weekend of performances both massive and intimate

Kingston, Jamaica, paid tribute to its most famous son this weekend, celebrating what would have been the 70th birthday of Bob Marley with a series of live events that featured the singer’s sons, former collaborators and the island’s newest wave of socially conscious reggae performers. Saturday night, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley headlined Redemption Live!, a free show that attracted several thousand to Kingston’s downtown waterfront. And on Friday, the Bob Marley Museum — Bob’s former home at 56 Hope Road — was the venue for a series of informal jam sessions and performances featuring “Marley 70 ambassadors” Chronixx, Kabaka Pyramid and No-Maddz.
In a fitting development, Jamaica’s Senate also passed legislation that reduces the possession of small amounts of marijuana to a ticketable, non-criminal offense not punishable by jail time, establishing the legal basis for a regulated medical marijuana industry. Damian Marley took the opportunity to address this news during his performance on Saturday night, calling for full-on legalization. Read more
