tootsrothbury @AndyShore There is a certain type of band that qualifies as a good day set. In the hot, early afternoon sun there is only so much a person can take. The mellow harmonies of the Fleet Foxes could not keep me entertained in the heat at ACL last year. It took a rocking show from the Fratellis to do that. Toots & the Maytals, are the perfect band for a day set at a festival.

 

Toots Hibbard is an entertainer. He has been on top of the reggae game longer than anybody else. He knows how to sing, lead a band and move a crowd. The three most important parts of being a great front man. Leading the Maytals through covers and originals, he had the decently sized crowd going from the first note.

 

Covers like “Louie, Louie” and “Take Me Home, Country Road” had the crowd singing along and begging for more. “What’s My Number” featured some call and response from the crowd. Toots was so impressed with the crowd, he told us “you are the first audience to do it 10 times.”
