“WORD, SOUND AND POWER” BAND TO REUNITE WITH ALL STAR CAST OF SPECIAL GUESTS AT PETER TOSH TRIBUTE CONCERT SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22ND

The Concert Will Feature Tosh’s Original Backing Band Along with Other Major Performers Following the Grand Opening of Museum Dedicated to the Iconic Reggae Star

September, 2016 (Kingston, Jamaica) — With late Reggae Legend Peter Tosh being honored this October with the opening of a new museum located at the Re-Named ‘Peter Tosh Square’ at the Pulse Centre in New Kingston, Jamaica, it was recently announced that his famed backing band “Word, Sound and Power” will reunite with original members at a benefit concert following the event.

Original members include Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Mikey Chung, Steve Golding, Robbie Lyn, Keith Sterling, Carlton “Santa” Davis, George “Fully” Fullwood, Carlton Smith, Derrick Lara and Junior Moore of The Tamlins, and Donald Kinsey as well as session musicians Dean Fraser and Nambo Robinson. Formed in 1976 as Tosh’s official backing group, “Word, Sound and Power” toured with the star both in the U.S. and Europe, and played during the iconic One Love Peace concert in 1978. Performers who have been confirmed so far include Tarrus Riley and Ky-Mani Marley. An incredible collection of famed reggae musicians have been invited to perform and will be announced as soon as confirmed.

Other distinguished invited guests include Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness, Minister of Information, Youth, Sports & Culture Olivia Grange, Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett and Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller.

Peter Tosh was a founding member of the groundbreaking reggae group The Wailers along with Bob Marley and Bunny Wailer. His work with the group, later solo career, social activism, and advocacy of the Rastafarian religion have left a lasting mark on not only Jamaican culture, but the world at large.

A self-taught guitar and keyboard player, Tosh and The Wailers became pioneers of the burgeoning reggae scene in the late 1960’s, and together they toured the world for over ten years. He left the band in 1973 to pursue his solo career and earned huge success with “Legalize It” and later solo releases. The project is promised to give fans a deeper look into the man behind the music. Tosh died at the age of 42 in 1987 during a tragic home invasion.

Tosh left behind a legacy that included countless hits, collaborations with artists such as Mick Jagger ( “Walk and Don’t Look Back”) and Keith Richards, and a family who have worked diligently in recent years on the Museum project and preserving his legacy.

When the Peter Tosh Museum officially opens its doors, Jamaicans and visitors from around the world will be able to see a large collection of never-before-seen Tosh memorabilia, as some of the treasures will be displayed to the public for the first time. Visitors will also be able to relive aspects of the non-conformist, futuristic and abundantly creative Tosh experience through sizzling audio and video recordings featuring the superstar, as well as iconic artifacts including his M16 guitar and beloved unicycle that became one of his favorite means of transportation. Also available will be exclusive merchandise for sale to the public.

The Museum project is a joint-venture collaboration between the Peter Tosh Estate, Pulse Investments Ltd, and Andrea Marlene Brown.
