WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Bob Marley & the Wailers have sold more than 400 million albums in the last four decades, and his band helped propel this international success. Today, a few of the legendary Wailers have reformed to create a new, tighter band, The Original Wailers, featuring American-born guitarist Al Anderson, who played on No Woman No Cry--he's also played with Peter Tosh, James Brown, Traffic and Ben Harper; and Junior Marvin, lead vocalist/guitarist for The Original Wailers; he often sang alongside Marley and as lead. Junior appeared in the '70s and played on Exodus, which Time magazine voted "Best Album Of The 20th Century." Junior also has played with Ike & Tina Turner, Steve Winwood, Stevie Wonder, Toots & the Maytals and recently with OAR. Junior, Al and Wya toured and recorded with Marley until his death. The band will perform all the songs of Bob Marley and the Wailers as they faithfully have since the meteoric rise of Bob Marley and the Wailers. This reformed configuration will breathe new life into each and every live show. The Original Wailers will carry forward the true spirit of "One Love" that they helped create with Bob Marley as one of the most influential bands of all time.
