Marley, know for hits like ?True To Myself,’ and his new ?Dragon Fly,’ from the album by the same name, is set to perform as part of a tribute to retiring Louisiana Sen. John Breaux. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 1972 at the age of 28. At the time of his election, he was the youngest member in the U.S. Congress.
Senator Breaux represented the 7th District of Louisiana for 14 years before being elected to fill Senator Russell Long’s seat in 1986. He is now set to retire and will be sent off with a “Caribbean Beach Bash” at the New England Aquarium. Buckwheat Zydeco, known for songs like, ?Turning Point,’ and ?Taking It Home,’ will also perform at the event.
The event is just part of the parties that go along for the convention, which opens on July 26, according to Reuters News. The rock band Los Lobos is set to perform at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute bash while Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform at the Creative Coalition arts group event. ? Hardbeatnews.com
