Toots and the Maytals, legendary architects of reggae, will perform an acoustic show to benefit the Rockhouse Foundation: Frederick "Toots" Hibbert founded the Maytals in the early 1960s in Kingston, Jamaica. They crafted some of the most important and influential songs in the history of reggae. The group’s 1968 single "Do the Reggay" is credited with giving the genre its name. Hibbert's unmistakable, rasping voice, gives their music an irresistibly feel-good vibe. This is a unique opportunity to hear live in an intimate setting internationally acclaimed, hip-shaking hits such as Pressure Drop, Monkey Man, Sweet and Dandy and 54-46 That's My Number.
The Rockhouse Foundation transforms the places where Jamaica's children learn and supports the people who teach them. Over the past decade the Rockhouse Foundation and Hotel has invested over US$4 million in projects improving education for the children in the Negril area. Since its inception, the Foundation has completely transformed and modernized the Negril Library and six local schools: Moreland Hill Primary and Infant Schools, Negril All Age School, Negril Basic School, Little Bay All Age and Infant Schools, Bunch of Stars E.C.I., and has just opened its latest project, the Savannah La Mar Inclusive Infant Academy focusing on children with Special Needs.
