Reggae singer Jo Mersa Marley — son of Stephen, grandson of Bob Marley — will perform Thursday, June 15, during the monthly Poplife Social on the terrace at Perez Art Museum Miami, part of PAMM’s celebration of National Caribbean-American Heritage Month.
The 6-10 p.m. third-Thursday gathering will feature cocktails from the waterfront bar, one of the great spots in South Florida to slow down with a drink. If you’re in the mood, there is dining at the museum’s Verde cafe. PAMM’s new exhibition, “John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night,” will be open for tours until 9 p.m. and there will be exhibition-inspired art-making.
Jo Mersa Marley, the Kingston-born, Miami-raised eldest son of reggae star Stephen Marley, has played a handful of headlining dates and festivals around the country in 2017, along with opening slots on UB40’s national tour. Marley’s most recent release is the 2014 album “Comfortable.”
UB40 performs with Marley on the bill on Aug. 15 at the Pompano Beach Amphitheatre (visit TheAmpPompano.org).
Admission to PAMM is $16 (which does not include your food and drinks), with the popularity of Poplife Social making advance purchase recommended.
