BAM R&B Festival at MetroTech

Prolific Jamaican rhythm section and production team Sly and Robbie have been the backbone, if not the soul, of reggae for over three decades. They first partnered to work with the inimitable Jimmy Cliff in 1975, and have since produced or recorded with Toots and the Maytals, Black Uhuru, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Madonna, and countless others. For MetroTech, they offer a breezy set with singer William “Bunny Rugs” Clarke from the popular Jamaican reggae band Third World.
