A seven-time Grammy winner, Emmy Winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter and producer, Ziggy Marley has released twelve albums to much critical acclaim. His early immersion in music came at age ten when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley. As front man to Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers, the group released eight best-selling albums that garnered three Grammys, with such chart-topping hits as “Look Who’s Dancing,” “Tomorrow People” and “Tumbling Down.” Ziggy’s first solo album, Dragonfly (RCA Records), was released in 2003.

His second solo release, Love is My Religion (Tuff Gong Worldwide), won a Grammy in 2006 for “Best Reggae Album.” His third solo album, Family Time (Tuff Gong Worldwide), scored him a 5th Grammy award for “Best Children’s Album.” In 2011, Ziggy released his critically acclaimed 4th studio album Wild And Free, which earned him a Grammy nomination, as well as his first ever comic book entitled MARIJUANAMAN. Ziggy Marley Organics, a GMO-free product line including flavored coconut oils and hemp seed snacks, was started in 2012. The products are distributed throughout the US and are available in over 1000 stores nationwide. His 2012 live album “Ziggy Marley In Concert,” recently earned him his 6th Grammy award for “Best Reggae Album.” To coincide with the release of his latest album “Fly Rasta,” (which earned his 7th GRAMMY Award) Ziggy released his debut children’s book “I Love You Too,” a coproduction of Akashic Books and Tuff Gong Worldwide.

The multicultural picture book is based on one of Ziggy’s most beloved songs of the same title from his Grammy Award-winning album “Family Time,” which explores a child’s relationship with parents, nature and the unstoppable force of love. Involved with a breadth of charities, Ziggy leads his own, U.R.G.E. (Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment), a non-profit organization that benefits efforts in Jamaica, Ethiopia and other developing nations. The charity’s missions range from building new schools to operating health clinics to supporting charities like Mary’s Child, a center for abused and neglected girls.

STEEL PULSE may have explored various styles of music since they started out in 1975, but when it comes to the message, the UK’s Grammy – Winning reggae band has remained close to their roots. The Group have continued their commitment to fighting injustice, educating the masses, and promoting positive messages through spiritually uplifting music.

Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts are presented by the Oregon College Savings Plan and Banfield Pet Hospital.

    In this troubled time in the world, would love to hear and dance to the love songs of Ziggy
    Marley at my favorite summer concert venue, the Oregon Zoo … Marley’s message of peace and unity might sound preachy on paper, but your feet will say otherwise…..

  65. Dee June 14, 2016 at 12:39 pm #

  67. Scott June 14, 2016 at 12:58 pm #

    Wow! What a great response asking for free tickets! On the off chance that I succeed, it will be so nice to take my better half of more than 31 years to see this, as, before me, she was with a Jamaican boyfriend for about 5 years and really got to appreciate their music and culture and would love to re-connect with that spirit, though without having to participate in the occasional goat roast(!), and I would love it too.

  68. Steve June 14, 2016 at 1:16 pm #

    Please hook a brother up with some Ziggy please mon! I am losing my job soon. And I need me some positive vibes me life!

  69. Gayleen June 14, 2016 at 1:18 pm #

    This would be my 1st ever Zoo concert.

  70. Christy June 14, 2016 at 1:25 pm #

    I and I overstand you are gifting 2 tickets to see Ziggy Marley. There is nothing better to do on a summer evening than take in some reggae, listening to and dancing with Ziggy and Steel Pulse. The only thing better would be listening to them alongside elephants, lions and penguins… Awesome!!

  71. Jacob June 14, 2016 at 1:29 pm #

    I’m always up to see Ziiggy perform while making new connections and raising them good vibrations!

  72. Lisa June 14, 2016 at 1:36 pm #

    This would be an awesome time with my teenage son.

  73. Jen June 14, 2016 at 1:42 pm #

  76. Lori Nye June 14, 2016 at 2:25 pm #

    I want to get jiggy with Ziggy. The last time I saw him I was on my feet all night. He has a lovely positive message of love. We need to all hear that. Tickets please.

  77. Karen June 14, 2016 at 3:21 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets! Bob Marley had a huge impact on me, and Ziggy is the only person that can ever come close! This would be a dream!!!

  78. Seth June 14, 2016 at 4:00 pm #

  84. Dejon Grittman June 15, 2016 at 5:22 pm #

    I have been trying to see Ziggy since I’ve moved to Portland. The concerts tickets always sell out and I seem to always miss out. I’d love to spend the evening with my hubby and Ziggy :)

  85. Paula Noel Macfie June 16, 2016 at 9:34 am #

    I would loooooove to be outdoors while being whisked away by the intelligently fluent incantations of Pink Martini……and invite my mom!

    • Paula Noel Macfie June 16, 2016 at 9:34 am #

      Oops! I thought this was Pink Martini!!!

  86. Glen June 16, 2016 at 3:13 pm #

    Love me some Reggae, can feel the moves & grooves starting in my toes and movin’ on up!

  87. Emily June 16, 2016 at 3:35 pm #

    This show will be awesome! I’d love to hear Ziggy Marley and Steel Pulse outdoors!

  95. Carole June 17, 2016 at 12:10 pm #

    I haven’t seen reggae since my Bay Area days – treks to Marysville for all day music was as close to any Woodstock I’ll ever experience but I remember how much it seemed like stepping back in time.

    Hope to go!

  96. Pisith Martin June 17, 2016 at 1:52 pm #

    Concerts at the zoo are so much fun! Ziggy and reggae will make it even better!

  97. Jaime June 17, 2016 at 4:04 pm #

  115. Paige Schuller June 21, 2016 at 2:32 pm #

    I went to Ziggys show in Eugene in 2011. My pregnancy caused my legs to swell, but I danced anyway. It would be neat to take my four year old to experience Ziggy Marley from the outside.

  116. Jane June 21, 2016 at 2:51 pm #

    Steel pulse was the first concert I ever went to and for my 25th birthday it would mean so much to me to see them again

    I’ve never seen Ziggey live in concert! It would be amazing to feel irie and dance on the grassroots to his positive vibes! I hope he plays more of his older stuff too!

  143. Joi Grabowski June 25, 2016 at 12:54 pm #

    This would be awesome. I grew up listening to Bob Marley and I love that Ziggy is following in his footsteps. I love reggae and never have been to the zoo yet. This would be a great time!

  144. Zach June 27, 2016 at 4:39 pm #

    Because, I have yet to see an Oregon Zoo concert! And heck yes to checking it off with a Ziggy concert! Please help make this happen

  147. Tammy June 28, 2016 at 1:11 pm #

    I grew up in South Florida, listening to the music of Ziggy, his dad, and Steel Pulse. I would love, love, LOVE to see them here in Portland!!!

  148. Katie Robinson June 28, 2016 at 1:14 pm #

    I have never been to a live concert before. This would be great!

  149. Claire June 28, 2016 at 1:29 pm #

  157. Jim Mc June 28, 2016 at 3:18 pm #

  158. Traci O June 28, 2016 at 3:26 pm #

  160. Mark Axton June 28, 2016 at 5:18 pm #

    Ziggy canceled a show I had tickets to in the Gorge, and I never got to see him! Would love to catch his act at the zoo!

  161. Dawn June 28, 2016 at 7:12 pm #

    Ziggy makes me wiggy!!!

  162. Jessica June 28, 2016 at 8:10 pm #

  166. Linda and Carl Jones June 29, 2016 at 7:50 pm #

    I would love to take my husband to see Ziggy Marley live for his 61st birthday. He’s never been to the Caribbean, but wants to take me on day. My family is from Antigua. We love to dance, and seeing Ziggy would be great!!!

  167. Cambria June 29, 2016 at 11:03 pm #

    Because my friend dated Damian once, and I need Ziggy to communicate an update for me.

  168. Megan June 30, 2016 at 10:03 am #

    Bob Marley was my dad’s very first concert and I would love to enjoy his son’s music with my dad. Thank you!

  169. Jessica Thiessen June 30, 2016 at 6:25 pm #

    My stepdaughter has never been exposed to the beauty of reggae and she loves music. This would make her get up, stand up, and cheer for those three little birds sitting on her doorstep!

  170. Drew June 30, 2016 at 9:03 pm #

    Jah! Rastafari! Give praise and thanks! Big ups and irie vibes!

  171. Trish June 30, 2016 at 10:45 pm #

    Would love to hang out with Ziggy at the Zoo!

  172. Kristi k July 1, 2016 at 12:16 am #

    Haven’t been to a zoo concert for years. Would love to take my son and jam with Ziggy.

  173. Heather Cassavoy July 1, 2016 at 8:14 am #

    I would love to see Ziggy at the Zoo! Awesome venue, and on my birthday weekend! I would consider it the best present!

  174. lorea jones July 1, 2016 at 8:40 am #

    This was my kids first concert and they are now 4 and 5 years old. That means you have to pay for their tickets and we can’t do that this summer! Winning music is better than any material thing! Pick us!!

  175. Christina July 1, 2016 at 9:38 am #


  176. Gabe July 3, 2016 at 12:32 pm #

    Huge fan of all things Marley, from his dad to Ziggy and the Tuff Gong label, they make beautiful music! Steel pulse is another band I have enjoyed through the years… Reggae music + summertime + Oregon Zoo, sounds awesome! Would make for a nice birthday gift too… (wink wink)

  177. Grace July 3, 2016 at 2:49 pm #

    Oh man. Seeing Ziggy on the lawn at the Zoo sounds like the perfect, peaceful summer event!

  178. Mariah July 3, 2016 at 5:40 pm #

    This would be such an amazing incredible once-in-a-lifetime early birthday present to myself!

  179. Jessie July 4, 2016 at 8:34 pm #


  180. Karl Jacobson July 5, 2016 at 12:22 pm #

    Yes, please & thank you!

  181. Missy July 5, 2016 at 12:43 pm #

    So much goodness in that man! … and what great gifts he delivers in his music … no better way to celebrate summer than boogie to Ziggy!

  182. Yaz July 5, 2016 at 1:12 pm #

    Its been almost 20 years since I last saw Ziggy at Washington Park, before they were called Zoo Concerts!!! I would love to revisit the wonderful memories of my youth in Portland…

  183. Robin July 5, 2016 at 1:48 pm #


  184. Patty July 5, 2016 at 1:54 pm #

    I’d go wiiiiiiild

  190. Adrian July 5, 2016 at 6:34 pm #

    I would love to go to another concert at the Zoo. I’ve been to a free with my girlfriend and it’s been a great experience for us every time. I would appreciate another opportunity to be able to enjoy another concert at the zoo.

  191. Andrea July 5, 2016 at 9:12 pm #

    I would love to go to a concert at the Zoo. I never been to one :(

  192. Valerie Huffman July 5, 2016 at 11:09 pm #

    Ziggy just makes my heart sing and my feet happy! I need to go see him!♡♡

  193. Jeanette July 6, 2016 at 12:40 am #

    I would love to surprise my daughter with tickets!

  194. Sarah Roberson July 6, 2016 at 11:24 am #

    Loved the father. Love the son.

  195. Julie Langford July 6, 2016 at 4:57 pm #

    When I met my husband, he had Marley posters all over his basement walls. As we just moved to Portland, we would adore to experience in our new hometown such a well-associated memory from our early days together!

  196. Anne July 7, 2016 at 9:44 am #

    Gosh, do you think anybody will be smoking pot? [Wink]

  197. Tyler July 7, 2016 at 2:18 pm #

    Oh man, this sounds like a blast. Not sure which one I would be more excited about, Steele Pulse or Ziggy!

  198. Luke Dumyahn July 7, 2016 at 2:19 pm #

    Would love to attend this concert with my wife. We love the Zoo and good music!!

  199. Sandra July 7, 2016 at 2:31 pm #

    Love me some Ziggy at the Zoo, with some Steel Pulse too!!!

  200. stephanie July 7, 2016 at 3:20 pm #

    I would be my boyfriend’s favorite since I forgot his birthday was today, he loves Ziggy and Steel Pulse. Please let me make it up to him with these free tickets!

  201. Mark S July 7, 2016 at 5:02 pm #

    Ziggy… because we don’t have enough reggae.

  202. Rachel Stokes July 7, 2016 at 10:40 pm #

    I love Everything about this Event!
    Fingers Crossed!

  203. johanna July 8, 2016 at 3:31 am #

    Sounds like an awesome time.

  204. Gabrielle July 8, 2016 at 7:47 am #

    I’ve never been to a concert at the zoo or even to the zoo in general – ziggy is one of my favs ! I would love to win tickets and take my boyfriend out to jam the night away to some sweet reggae

  205. Diane July 8, 2016 at 11:00 pm #

    When in doubt Reggae out!
    Yes please!

  206. Kali Scolnick July 9, 2016 at 2:49 pm #

    I am part West Indian and my boys rarely get the chance to see reggae in Portland. Most shows that make it here are 21+ (they are 11 and 13). The zoo is the perfect place for us to enjoy the ire sounds in a family friendly space. I wanted to buy tickets, but for a family of four it is cost prohibitive. With two free tickets all 4 of us can go! One Love!

  207. Kali Scolnick July 9, 2016 at 2:51 pm #

  210. GeekPower July 11, 2016 at 3:19 pm #

    Pipeline… help me out I have a friend that would go crazy if he could see this concert… I would love to take him.

  211. Katrina Kellmer July 11, 2016 at 3:23 pm #

    It would be a blast to see Reggae music performed by the best ever Ziggy Marley! I have never seen reggae live.

  212. mk July 11, 2016 at 9:16 pm #

    Much needed mellow evening

  219. Jef July 12, 2016 at 7:35 pm #

    I want to bring my Dad to this concert and he had never been to the Zoo and only been to Oregon one other time. Please pick me!

  220. Melissa fowler July 12, 2016 at 8:02 pm #

    This would be great

  221. Bret jarvis July 12, 2016 at 8:02 pm #


  222. Mari Stephenson July 13, 2016 at 10:36 am #

    Ziggy at the Zoo!!!!

  223. Fabian Dorgan July 13, 2016 at 2:02 pm #

    I’d love to win the tickets to see Ziggy Marley because I want to share the beauty and grace of his music, and message of faith, with my daughter. I have followed his, and his family members, journey and transformation through music. Listening to his music heals hearts. The love he has for his craft is obvious, and I’d be ever so grateful to share witnessing it with my daughter. Thank you.

  224. Darcey Priss July 13, 2016 at 2:06 pm #

    I feel a strong connection to Ziggy, his message, family and music. I’m grateful to be present at a time in history, when we have the opportunity to watch his talent flourish. I’d love winning these tickets because I want to share them with my mom. I think sharing his music with someone is a priceless gift. Thank you for this opportunity.

  225. Sher Shepps July 13, 2016 at 2:07 pm #

  229. Adam Robinson July 14, 2016 at 1:40 pm #

    I worked at Tower Records Beaverton when “Jahmeyka” was released. Love him! ;)

  230. Lisa July 14, 2016 at 3:44 pm #

    This would be a great way to spend an evening.

  231. Sameena Bachmeier July 14, 2016 at 3:53 pm #

    Ziggggggy!!!!! Yes please!!!!!!!

  232. Aaron July 14, 2016 at 4:12 pm #

    I know the elder Marley and one of the other brothers, but haven’t heard much Ziggy. Would enjoy the chance to do so!

  233. Tracy Brown July 14, 2016 at 5:08 pm #

  240. DNFN July 18, 2016 at 6:49 pm #

    I have family going but couldn’t get tickets. It would be so amazing to be able to get tickets and join them.

  241. Devin July 19, 2016 at 9:43 am #

    There’s so much gloom
    Hiding the reality
    It’s just a beautiful day

    Love. Laughter. Legacy.

  242. Jane July 19, 2016 at 12:38 pm #

  246. Nicole July 19, 2016 at 2:39 pm #

    I’d love to win because my husband LOVES reggae! For his birthday I had gotten him tickets to a reggae concert but the band was just not good…Ziggy is AWESOME and would totally make up for the bad concert on his birthday, plus we have friends that are going and would love to join them! Thanks!!!

  247. Bri July 19, 2016 at 3:24 pm #

    My fiancé has been working 7 days a week so that I can attend nursing school. I’d love to surprise him with one relaxing night this summer since he takes such good care of me and our 4 kids!

  248. Julie July 19, 2016 at 5:27 pm #

    Love his message, love the reggae, love the setting. Steel Pulse will be a fun addition!

  249. Casey July 19, 2016 at 5:35 pm #

    Ziggy is awesome!

  250. Kris July 20, 2016 at 9:32 am #

    I would LOVE to see Ziggy Marley!

  251. Diana July 20, 2016 at 12:32 pm #

    My best friend from Mexico will be visiting Portland for the first time and seeing Ziggy perform would be a dream come true!

  252. Diana July 20, 2016 at 6:18 pm #

  253. Jennifer July 21, 2016 at 12:37 pm #

    It’s my wedding anniversary August 4th and I would love to surprise my husband with tickets to see Ziggy at the zoo. Thank you!

  254. Lex Jimenez July 21, 2016 at 3:17 pm #

    You need to pick my wife and I because she grew up in Hawaii listening to Steele Pulse and every time she’s had the opportunity to see them something has come up stopping her. Please make this the time she gets to see them! We love reggae and the zoo so what better combo?! And who doesn’t love Ziggy?!! This would be an awesome concert and one we don’t want to miss.

  255. Lynn Elsdon July 21, 2016 at 3:37 pm #

    I love reggae music!

  256. Tonia Noelle July 21, 2016 at 4:25 pm #

    Cool outdoor venue, rockin reggae…..who could ask for more for a fun evening out? Have never experienced Ziggy…please allow me this opportunity.

  257. Cindy B July 21, 2016 at 6:37 pm #

    Why pick me? Because I was sick when he played last year. I sold my tickets at last minute to a friend of a friend, in the”family@” so to speak. He never paid me for the tickets so I eventually wrote it off.
    Am I bitter? Hellz no. But the only way I could go this year is with complimentary please pay me a compliment!

  258. Glenn Bishop July 21, 2016 at 10:07 pm #

    Is it time to give away those Ziggy tix away yet?

  259. Kelsy johnson July 22, 2016 at 3:53 am #

    I am yearning to hear Ziggy Marley,. Oregon Zoo is a great venue for him!

  262. Meagan E. July 22, 2016 at 10:15 am #

    OH MAN!!! I would LOVE the opportunity to get to finally see him!! I was about 2 hours away from seeing him the last time he came to the Zoo but it was like 95-100 degrees that day and my SO was already showing signs of heat stroke so I had to give up my tickets last minute:-(
    I’m now a single mama and my 8 year old daughter would be ECSTATIC if we were chosen!!!

  263. Jeremiah Berman July 22, 2016 at 11:41 am #

    I would love to win this so I can give them to the person that commented right before me because it was too hot and I had to sell our tickets to the concert but then the person we told him to keep sending us pictures and saying how great the concert was and I was just rubbing it in and 9 year old daughter would love to go see him and so was her mom who had to give her a chance to see him last night

  264. Jeremiah Berman July 22, 2016 at 11:43 am #

    Because I am a late bloomer to music and my wife is trying desperately to bring me to a semblance of normalcy! :)

  267. James D. July 24, 2016 at 12:14 am #

    Wow, would love to catch Ziggy at such a unique venue. I’m only in town for two days and this happens to be one of them. How great to be able to check out both ZIggy and the Zoo at once!

  268. Sue A July 24, 2016 at 5:40 am #

    Sounds fantastic. Would love to see him.

  269. Bridget July 26, 2016 at 1:58 pm #

    I want to see the lions dance to reggae

  270. B July 26, 2016 at 3:21 pm #

    Not a lot of people know this, but Ziggy Marley’s name spelled backwards is Yelram Yggiz, which means “sparkling horchata pamphlet” in my dream language. Obviously this is a good sign.

    Thank you for your attention.

  271. Bob July 28, 2016 at 1:44 pm #

    Want to see the elephants’ trunks sway in time to the island beats

  272. ashlee July 30, 2016 at 8:02 pm #

    We love Ziggy & our kids have listened to his music since they were a twinkle in our eyes. His lyrics have helped us teach them about peace & unity & his children CD’s deliver wonderful messages. All of his music does:)
    My husband has listened to Steel Pulse since before our soul connection…30 yrs ago. He loves their music! Concerts at the zoo are fabulous.
