Flanked by some of the genre’s finest session players of the time, including Augustus Pablo and Sly & Robbie, in the late ’70s the reggae vocal trio Israel Vibration recorded a handful of charming roots albums dedicated mostly to their Rastafarian faith. The group toyed with dub, but remained traditionalists, avoiding the dancehall that dominated Jamaica in the late ’80s. A shake-up in 1997 cut Israel Vibration down to a duo, as founding member Albert Craig left for a modest solo career, but the band has adapted well to the change, relying on backing vocalists where the three lead vocalists used to harmonize. Tonight the group does an 8 p.m. show at Turner Hall Ballroom.


A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
