As one of the pioneering groups of the roots-reggae movement, Jamaica's Mighty Diamonds has been churning out timeless vocal classics for more than the past four decades. Focusing its music on the spirituality of the Rastafari movement, the trio would became a staple at the legendary Channel One Studios with hits like "Country Living" and "I Need a Roof." The three men's amalgam of sweet sea breeze melody and outer-body three-piece harmony would eventually bring them to prominence in a burgeoning dub scene. Forever seducing loyal audiences into a heavenly bliss, the Diamonds will make only one Midwest stop on its current tour.

Fun Fact: The Mighty Diamonds hit "Pass the Koutchie" took on a new life with the Musical Youth cover "Pass the Dutchie."
