About The Wailers
Bob Marley and the Wailers recorded, toured and made history together between 1972 and 1981. It was Bob Marley himself that requested the Wailers stayed together. Today, carrying on the mission are legitimate members, children-of-legends and a host of immensely talented musicians. The afore mentioned Aston Barrett Jr delivers startling echoes of his uncle’s (Carlton ‘Carly’ Barrett) one drop drumming sound. Guitarist Donald Kinsey is joined by Wendel ‘Junior Jazz’ Ferraro, shaping that classic sonic identity. Josh David Barrett achieves the seemingly impossible by confidently stepping into Bob Marley’s shoes to provide truly excellent lead vocals. Owen ‘Dreadie’ Reid (Julian Marley’s Uprising Band and a former student of ‘Familyman’) and Andres Lopez (Albrosie, Lutan Fyah) add yet more quality to an incredible line up that also includes the youngest of the earliest formation of the Wailers, Tyrone Downie, saxophone player Glen Dacosta and Dennis Thompson, the engineer who was there from the very beginnings of the band. Shema McGregor, daughter of I Three singer Judy Mowatt and Reggae pioneer Freddie McGregor, are joined by Anne-Marie Thompson (a gospel singer of stunning ability) and Tamara Barnes who has been in the music industry for over 20 years, providing backing vocals in studio and on stage for I-Threes, Jimmy Cliff, Ky-Mani Marley, Beres Hammond and Freddie McGregor among many others. Together they bring the smoothest backing vocals, contributing to this unique melting pot, both classic and excitingly fresh at the same time
