Jamaica’s Frederick “Toots” Hibbert and his band, the Maytals, weren’t just present when reggae music was taking off. Their 1968 tune, “Do the Reggay,” is often credited with coining the genre’s name. Toots and the Maytals profoundly impacted the island sound and have served as worldwide ambassadors of ska and reggae through their many albums, tours and appearances. Tonight , the group, led by Mr. Hibbert, 61, performs at the State Theatre (220 N. Washington St., Falls Church). Showtime is 8:30 p.m. Tickets ($26) may be purchased at the door or at www.thestatetheatre.com. Call 703/237-0300.
