Bob Marley tribute this weekend

On Saturday 12 May, a band named The Survivals will host a tribute reggae event for Bob Marley at The Recreational Hall, Albany Road in Grahamstown.

Bob Marley was a Jamaican singer-songwriter , an international musical and cultural icon who died on 11 May 1981 at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Miami at the aged of 36. His final words to his son Ziggy Marley were “Money can’t buy life.”

Sticking to the roots, The Survivals decided to host an event on 12 May, dedicated to Marley and the reggae nation, following the day on which he died.

The band was founded in 1990 and still exist to this day, it has been performing in and around the country. They have been recruiting young members to join and keep the band alive for this long.

The Survivals have been hosting events to help raise funds for the local NGOs. The band plays a variety of music, from Soul, Blues, Reggae, and its a six-piece band with a drummer, saxophonist, bassist, two guitarists and a vocalist.

For a second time, the band had received an invitation to perform at the JAMS Funk Festival in New York, USA. With this tribute event, they are raising funds to help with their trip, as they will also have a food stall and a bar at the venue.

The Funk Fest takes place over the course of one day and is a ‘feature festival’ of a much larger festival called the New York State Fair. The fair runs during late August to September and draws over 1 million people annually. It presents hundreds of performances of all catering to a multitude of nationalities.

    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
