Five-time Grammy winner and reggae icon Ziggy Marley has released twelve albums to much critical acclaim. The eldest son of international music legend Bob Marley, he first achieved worldwide success with his first solo album, 'Dragonfly,' followed up by his 2006 Grammy-winning album 'Love is My Religion' and his third solo album, 'Family Time,' which scored him a fifth Grammy Award for Best Children's Album.

Joining Marley will be legendary Jamaican reggae band Inner Circle, formed in 1968 and currently consisting of Ian Lewis (bass guitar, vocals), Jr. Jazz (vocals, guitar), Bernard "Touter" Harvey (keyboards, vocals), Lancelot Hall (drums, percussion) and Roger Lewis (guitar, vocals). During the 1970s, Inner Circle became one of the most popular reggae bands in Jamaica, and one of few that performed live. Among their many hits is the 1987 song "Bad Boys", the theme song for Fox Network's long-running television program "COPS."
