The Legendary Wailers, Bob Marley’s famed backing band, will be performing the Reggae icon’s hits when they play at the Cohoes Music Hall on Tuesday October 17. The Wailers have long been the caretakers of Marley’s musical legacy since his premature death from cancer back in 1981. The band continues to tour around the world in order to spread Marley’s timeless message of “Jah Love” just as he requested they do prior to his death.
The current version of the band, steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barret, along with original Wailers‘ guitarists Julian Marvin and Donald Kinsey, spread Marley’s message and music to a new generation of fans. That message of love is masterfully channeled to the audience by Rastaman lead vocalist Joshua David Barrett. The Wailers bring infectious Jamaican Reggae dance music wherever they go. If you love to groove, this is a show not to miss. Tickets are available at the Cohoes Music Hall box office.
