As the oldest son of reggae legend Bob Marley, singer and songwriter Ziggy Marley has made a name for himself as one of the genre's leading artists. Ziggy and his siblings formed the Melody Makers in 1981 after their father's death. Their 1988 album, Conscious Party, won a Grammy and helped the group break through to mainstream audiences. Marley began a solo career in 2006 and has recorded several more Grammy Award-winning albums, including his self-titled 2016 studio effort.
This package includes a Road Runner Boulevard Series Electric Guitar Gig Bag, plus three 8 x 10" and three 5 x 7" photos of Ziggy Marley with the guitar before the signing, and during. Digital copies of the photos will also be emailed to the winner.
