Reggae Harmonies 

Mighty Diamonds at Ashkenaz.

Reggae legends the Mighty Diamonds — Donald "Tabby" Shaw, Fitzroy "Bunny" Simpson, and Lloyd "Judge" Ferguson — may be the only close-harmony trio of the late '60s still performing with all-original members. Their debut, Right Time, is as good as anything Bob Marley ever cut, and Shaw's songwriting and high, keening vocals, full of soul and sufferation, mark one of the high points of reggae's golden age. The harmonies still sound as sweet as ever. Wednesday September 7 at Ashkenaz. 9:30 p.m. $15 door/$10 students. 510-525-5054 or Ashkenaz.com
