Lady Marcia Griffiths, Ms Tanya Stephens 

When: Thu., July 1, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $25-30

Marcia Griffiths earned her "Queen of Reggae" title courtesy of her musical output and the regal fingerprints that she's left all over the Jamaican music timeline. Early on, Griffiths recorded at the legendary Studio One and its rival, Trojan. She teamed with vocalist/ songwriter Bob Andy as Bob and Marcia before joining Rita Marley and Judy Mowatt to form the Bob Marley-backing I-Threes. And her dance number "Electric Boogie" gave the world the Electric Slide. But it's her whipped-caramel voice, never better than when interpreting Nina Simone's "Young, Gifted, and Black" or Al Green's "Here I Am," that makes her truly throne-worthy. Lady in waiting Tanya Stephens opens. —Rick Cornell
