Considered by many to be the best roots-reggae band around, John Brown's Body serves up a deep, deep groove. The horns are amazing as they switch off between rhythm and melody. It'll twirl your skirt. And as far as the best: they're good, but they'll be sharing the stage with Thunderbody. So, better step high.
John Brown's Body with Thunderbody and Haewa will open this year's Party in the Park series on Thursday, June 16, at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 353 Court Street. 5 p.m. $5. cityofrochester.gov/pitp; johnbrownsbody.com.
