Matisyahu and Stephen Marley head to Sound Board

One is a contemporary Hebrew reggae rapper and the other is reggae royalty — together, Matisyahu and Stephen Marley make for one hell of a synergistic rasta duo.



Though the Hasidic rapper may have traded in his traditional beard and curls years ago, Matisyahu’s message of wokeness is as clear as ever. And though Stephen bares the weight of his legendary father’s name, Marley has found his own voice as both a musician and producer within the genre. Worlds collide as the Strength to Strength tour will deliver these two spiritual heavy-hitters for a night of awakening and rapid-fire rhyming.

Matisyahu and Stephen Marley will perform at Sound Board on Friday, June 8 at 8 p.m.; 2901 Grand River Ave., Detroit; 313-309-4614; soundboarddetroit.com; Tickets start at $40.
