The Voice of Jamaica

Brown produced anywhere from 50 to 100 LPs -- sources vary -- but there's no doubt that the cache of music he left behind has influenced an entire generation of reggae performers and fans.

"The reason why we've done this [tribute] the past six years is because we lost somebody great," Mikey says. "We're just showing that respect for his music."

"For the tribute," Tony says, "we want the youths to come out, all the bashment fans, and listen to the words and the voice of Dennis Brown. Just check out something different."

John Darnielle -- the acoustic-strumming, indie demigod -- found common ground with Brown. It shouldn't be too tough for the rest of us.

The Sixth Annual Dennis Brown Tribute starts at 10 p.m. Friday, July 15, at Tavern on the Green, 315 S. 62nd Ave., Hollywood. The show is free. Call 954-962-7618.
