A consortium of top musicians hailing from the beautiful Caribbean island of Dominica, the Ancient and Holy Lands of Ethiopia, and the South Side of Chicago, comes the award winning reggae music of Gizzae.
Formed in 1992 after the breakup of Dallol (Ziggy Marley’s Touring Band) and Moja Nya (New York), Rocket and Gizzae have been playing for crowds across the country for over 35 years! Their musical experiences have collectively earned them Grammy® awards, Chicago Music Awards and they have opened for and performed with some of the biggest names in Reggae. They have also recorded and played professionally with such acts as: Ziggy Marley, The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Third World, Toots and Maytals, Burning Spear,The Talking Heads, Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and many others.
Working and playing with such a vast array of musical styles and talents has enabled Gizzae to create a unique blend of Roots Reggae and we are delighted to kick off summer 2022 with this positive dance party.
Tickets are $12-14 if purchased online before the show. Tickets will be $16 dollars at the door.
