Although vocal reggae trio Black Uhuru, whose name translates to "black freedom" in Swahili, has yet to experience the same commercial superstardom in America as Bob Marley and The Wailers, its spirited concerts and prolific catalog have continuously made it a magnet for critical acclaim. Rolling Stone listed the group's 1981 album, Red Island, as one of the 100 Best Albums of the Eighties ahead of records by Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, and Janet Jackson, describing the effort as “a plea for cultural revolution and religious faith.” Hailing from Kingston's Waterhouse district, the troupe continued to proudly represent its hometown with 1984's Anthem, which won a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Recording. Today, Black Uhuru still drums its urgent sound and life-affirming melodies with founding member Derrick “Duckie” Simpson singing alongside Andrew Bees and Kaye Star.

Before smooth horns and offbeat guitar strokes lift the refrain of Black Uhuru's hit song “What Is Life,” Park City’s The Patwa Reggae Band paves the way as singer and Kingston native Erroll Grant leads multinational group members from the United States, England, and Jamaica. Salt Lake City’s DJ Roots Rawka will also perform.

Park City Live

Underneath Park City Live’s shimmering laser light system, a slew of musical acts shine. The energetic venue is equally at home pulsating with dance music or hosting a stripped-down acoustic show, beckoning a diverse crowd of music aficionados to its dynamic confines. But the venue didn't begin life as a haven for audiophiles and their ears. The historic Summit County War Veterans Memorial Building, completed in 1940 following a fire, was originally home to an American Legion room, rifle range, gymnasium, and the Boy Scouts. But by 1984, the entertainment needs of the city had changed, and the building began providing recreation of the more artistic variety. Today, the space serves as the home for Park City Live, as well as O’Shucks Bar & Grill and Rock ‘N’ Reilly’s Irish Pub.
