THE ORIGINAL WAILERS
Back in 1974, after Bob Marley went solo, he asked a man named Al Anderson to be the lead guitarist in his reformed band, The Wailers. From this wonderful partnership, all-time classic roots, rock, reggae songs like “No Woman, No Cry”, “Dem Belly Full” and “Curfew (Three O’ Clock Road Block)” were born, and an entirely new demographic world wide took note of Bob and the music that was birthed in his native Jamaica. Since the death of Marley, Al Anderson has kept the flame of reggae alive. Aside from his time working with artists like Peter Tosh, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, and Ben Harper, he also tours and records as The Original Wailers, and together they’re ready to share songs from their latest EP Miracle, as well as a heavy dose of classics originally written and performed with Mr. Marley. Be present, and spread the positivity at what promises to be the most important reggae show of the year in Nashville. One love!
