Celebrations surrounding Bob Marley’s 70th birthday will move to Lake Tahoe’s North Shore this week.

Following a performance by Junior Reid at the South Shore last week, Reggae Ambassadors will host its own commemoration of the life of the reggae legend at the Tahoe Biltmore on Saturday.

“Bob was born on February 6, 1945 in Nine Miles, St. Ann Parish, Jamaica,” according to a description of the event. “Since his passing on May 11, 1981, at age 36, Bob Marley’s legend looms larger than ever. He was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, and his song ‘One Love’ was designated ‘Song of the Millennium’ by the BBC.

“This is the 5th Annual Bob Marley Birthday Celebration produced by Reggae Ambassadors at the Tahoe Biltmore commemorating the love and legacy that Bob Marley left us.”

DJ Ramone, DJ Clay, Dubfyah, Winstrong and Soul Medic are scheduled to perform at Saturday’s event.

“Come out to show your love for Bob Marley and reggae music, One Love,” according to an email from promoters.
