Maxi Priest in DC

Maxi Priest @ Zanzibar

I didn't know I was a Maxi Priest fan till I was actually bobbing my head to familiar hit songs of his during the performance this past Saturday. The non-conventional Reggae artists with #1 hits including "Wild World", "Just a little longer" and "Close to You", had middle-aged women crooning to all his songs at Zanzibar On the Waterfront.
He's one of my dad's favorite artists and of course pops was shaking and bopping to all Maxi had to offer as well, sigh. Considering this was the first time I'd ever seen Maxi Priest in person, I could not help but find some resemblance with him and Ice Cube... Maybe a 'dreaded-up' Ice Cube could pass for a Reggae artist.
