Toots & The Maytals Celebrate Toots' 70th Birthday at The Capitol Theatre

Reggae flowed through The Capitol Theater on Friday when Toots and the Maytals played over a two and a half hour set.

Reggae flowed through The Capitol Theater on Friday when Toots and the Maytals played over a two and a half hour set. The energy inside the Capitol Theater was electric, the crowd was loud, and mid-December in Port Chester felt more like the warmth and love of Jamaica.

Special guests included Bill Kreutzmann (Grateful Dead, 7 Walkers) and Bobby Keys (Rolling Stones) on “Funky Kingston.” The night was complete when stage manager, Eliot Byron, rolled a birthday cake on stage and the crowd sang "Happy Birthday" to Toots — twice!

Other favorites played were an extended "Monkey Man," where the crowd was jumping along in song, "True Love is Hard To Find," and "Reggae Got Soul."
