Mighty Diamonds - Free Concert @ SM Pier

By garrett

Every summer the City of Santa Monica hosts the Twilight Dance Series, a free community supported concert that stretches from the pier deck to the beach and beyond.

Starting in 1983, the series has become an annual fixture on the Santa Monica Pier and consistently brings in great acts from all parts of the musical spectrum.

This thursday they are bringing in one of my all-time favorite reggae acts - The Mighty Diamonds.

The Diamonds formed in 1969 and are the longest-running roots reggae trio in Jamaican history.

Chances are you have heard one of their songs and not even known it.

Trust me - these boys do not tour very often and this show is not to be missed!!

Arrive early and you can catch me up front by the speakers..

More info on the event can be found here - Twilight Concert Series website.

Check this video circa early 1970's...
