Family Time

Hundreds of kids had their parents in tow for an acoustic concert by Ziggy Marley, who was supporting his new children's album Family Time. Without pausing to address the sold out crowd, Marley took the stage and began strumming chords on his guitar. As a father, Marley must have known he was competing with naps and snacks.

Parent's familiar with Family Time sang along with the lyrics -- "Since I have no wings, I'm going to sing, sing, sing" -- while many children took turns spinning and swinging on the adjacent playground. Shade was scarce, but the mood among the clustered families was positive and conversations erupted throughout -- sometimes rendering Ziggy and his four band mates little more than background music for those not in front of the stage.

When Ziggy left after a 50-minute set, the crowd seemed stunned and insisted he come back for more. "I thought the kid's needed a nap," Marley quipped before offering a captivating smile and singing his father's "Redemption Song" and his own "Love Is My Religion." Ziggy's daughter sitting on stage and most of the audience sang along in agreement.

I wonder if there were any complaints of marijuana smoke, like the time Marley played at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
