The Original Wailers
January 26 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the American-born Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as “No Woman, No Cry” and “Three O’Clock Road Block” that first alerted rock fans to The Wailers music.
Anderson’s musical achievements with Bob Marley & The Wailers include the platinum award-winning albums Live at the Lyceum, Babylon by Bus and ten-times platinum album Legend. The Original Wailers received their own Grammy Nomination in 2013 for their album Miracle, making it Anderson’s second Grammy nomination.
The Original Wailers also include Chet Samuel (lead vocals/guitar), Omar Lopez (bass guitar), Howard Smith (drums) and Noel Aiken (keyboards/organ), who continue the legacy of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ music.
