Black Uhuru

  • The Prestige: In a career that has spanned more than four decades and nearly 30 albums, Black Uhuru has emerged as the second highest selling reggae act of all time, right behind Bob Marley.
  • The Sound: Layers upon layers of dub vibrations that sway from breezy to urgent get glutes and boots shaking, heightened by jaunty upstroke rhythms and spacey vocal and keyboard effects.
  • The Name: translates to “Black Freedom” in Swahili
  • Red: Rolling Stone ranked this 1981 album as as one of the 100 Best Albums of the Eighties (ahead of records by Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, and Janet Jackson) and described it as “a plea for cultural revolution and religious faith.”
  • History Making Moment: In 1985, the group’s Anthem—a musical valentine to Kingston’s Waterhouse district—landed the first-ever Grammy Award for Best Reggae Recording.
  • The Lineup: After four decades and many changing tides, founding member Derrick “Duckie” Simpson continues to lead the charge with fellow longtime member Andrew Bees, an ace rhythm section, and a new female singer who nails the parts made famous by the sadly departed Puma Jones.
  • Uhuru Hits to Expect: “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” “Sponji Reggae,” and the evening-defining “Happiness”

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.
