Rock and Roll Martini Group features Bob Marley

Rock and Roll Martini Group

Dave Parker

The house band (host) for the September meeting of the Rock and Roll Martini Group was Margot Leurig and Diane Khalar. This month the group moved to the Caribbean with music from the late great Bob Marley. Bob Marley was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. In December of 1999 his 1977 album Exodus was named album of the century by Time Magazine and his song One Love was designated song of the Millennium by the BBC. Since its release in 1984 Marley’s Legend compilation has annually sold over 250,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan, and it is only the 17th album to exceed sales of ten million copies since SoundScan began its tabulations in 1991. The rockers enjoyed appetizers and desserts with a Caribbean theme like jerk chicken and Caribbean shrimp. There were three Caribbean themed martinis for the evening including two special Jamaican martinis by mixologists Margot and Diane. One highlight of the evening was two of the founding members of the Rock and Roll Martini Group, Jeff and Paula Sales, attended the meeting after returning from an RV across America tour. Until next month, ROCK ON!
