Toots and the Maytals
The night before St. Patrick's Day, my friends Rebecca and Brian offered me a ticket to go see Toots and the Maytals at the House of Blues Chicago. Although my knowledge of Toots is somewhat limited, I knew it would be a feel-good show, so I happily accepted. I'm glad I did because the show was a blast; my face hurt from smiling by the end of the night. Toots was rocking a Thriller - I mean killer - red and black leather outfit, which only enhanced his charismatic stage presence. Along with the Maytals, Toots kept the crowd dancing the whole set, ending with an extended version of arguably their most famous song (because it is awesome), "54-46 Was My Number."
