In tribute and remembrance of Bob Marley, Groundation is playing a cover show at The Key Club tonight. Now, I have never heard of Groundation before, http://www.myspace.com/groundation, but they seem like your traditional dub reggae band. The real kicker is that Will Bernard, former bay area guitarist supreme (he recently moved to New York) will be sitting in with them for the show.
If you are a fan of jazz music, reggae music or simply are mesmerized by a fantastic guitar player who can move their fingers with alarming speed and precision…than this is the show for you. Will Bernard is one of the top guitarists around, as a permanent member of T.J. Kirk and Fully Loaded, as well as touring with his own outfits Motherbug and the Will Bernard Trio. Although I do not know exactly what to expect tonight, I have high expectations.
The Hooliganz open the show (never heard of them either). $15. Doors open at 7:30.
