The tribute event will be held on Friday, February 6, 2015 from 10pm-3am to commemorate Marley’s 70th birthday, as well as to honor the birthday of Highlanda Sound co-founder ĀGARD. Highlanda’s Kahlil Wonda, who shares an Aquarius birthdate with his wife, will also be celebrating on this special occasion. Musical selections as global as Marley himself will be presented all night by Highlanda Sound’s other co-founder, SuperPEC Archangel alongside selector M.I.C and surprise guests.
Located at 393 Marietta Street near to The World of Coca-Cola and Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, the venue Studio No. 7 is billed as a space for creatives and will offer a blend of art, cuisine, cocktails and music for this event. Tickets starting at $10 will be available online and at the door.
Although he passed away in 1981, Bob Marley’s music still accounts for over half of all reggae music sales, and his message continues to resonate across the globe as a beacon of truth, justice, and love.
“Mr. and Mrs. Wonda and I wanted to organize a big Aquarius anniversary, meanwhile Highlanda’s supporters were asking for a special event on a weekend since many folks are unable to attend Rocksteady on 1st Sundays. This all coincided with Bob’s 70th and Studio No. 7’s interest in hosting an event with Marley-inspired music. More than just reggae, its an international music phenomena and a great way to infuse people,” said ĀGARD, founder of Highlanda Sound and ĀGARD Entertainment.
