You won’t be able to sit still at this Marcia Griffiths Cincinnati Concert!
When you attend a Bar-B-Que, wedding, birthday party, or any type of festive gathering, chances are that your designated DJ (even if it’s you) will get the crowd turned up with a round of “Electric Slide”. Guess what? You can turn up live with the legend who created it at the upcoming Marcia Griffiths Cincinnati concert.
Get ready to slide on November 13th at 8:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 if you purchase them online in advance. The price increases to $30 on the day of the show.
Parking is available in the Clifton Gaslight District inside the Merchant Lot located at 334 Howell Ave. The lot sits directly behind the Clifton Plaza (next to The Clifton Market.) The first hour is free. After that, any additional hour is $1/hour. Be sureto ask for a validation ticket.
About Marcia Griffiths
The longest, hardest, and most consistently working artist in the history of the Jamaican Music Industry is the Empress of Reggae music, the most Honorable Marcia Griffiths, OD, first Lady of Songs, Female Vocalist Supreme.
In a career spanning 40 years to date and still going strong, she hits high points internationally as a soloist and as a duo with Bob Andy, as Bob and Marcia. She has toured the world as a member of the I-threes with Bob Marley and the Wailers. Subsequently, as a soloist, Marcia gained solo international recognition with her monster hit “Electric Boogie.”
This song was first recorded in 1982 and went to the #1 spot on the Jamaican charts. Sales continued over the years and in 1989, a Washington, DC Disc Jockey started playing it regularly and in no time, it caught on and hit the station’s regular rotation list. A new dance, the Electric Slide, was created from the “Electric Boogie” song and as a result, sales soared and the “Electric Slide” became popular all over the U.S.
