90.3 The Rock and "Simmer Down" present The Wailers live on the U.S. Cellular Stage at the Bijou Theatre Wednesday, March 30th
with reggae from Duane Stephenson
Doors 7 PM, Show 8 PM
In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley's death, The Wailers are currently on a nationwide tour featuring music from the newly released double - CD of Marley's last performance, as well as the class album, "Uprising."
The anchor of the band is Aston "Family Man" Barrett, who in addition to being Marley's most trusted lieutenant, played on countless other classic reggae hits throughout the seventies. The authenticity he brings to the Wailers' sound is indisputable and yet today's line-up combines old school know-how with lead vocals from one of Jamaica's most exciting new singers, Koolant. As enthusiastic audiences have already discovered, Koolant brings his own personal expression to Marley's songs, revitalizing them for young and old alike.
