The reigning riddim kings of Jamaican music since 1975, when they teamed up with Jimmy Cliff in a hit-making combination, drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare have had an inestimable effect on reggae, dub and dancehall music as a limber rhythm section and an imaginative, space-wise production team. Catch a free earful over lunch in downtown Brooklyn, then head to Irving Plaza for the main event.
