Reunited at last! The legendary Wailers bands are back together and are bringing its revolutionary sound to the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater! For the time since the death of Bob Marley, all but one of the original members, Carlton Barret who was tragically murdered in 1987, shall come together again to make another display of musical unity! Family Man will be joined by his son, Aston Junior, on drums, along with Seeco, Way, Tyrone, Donald Kinsey and Junior Marvin. It is the moment so many reggae fans have always dreamt of, despite the many obstacles that might have been in the way. From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & the Wailers recorded, toured, and performed before millions worldwide. Since 1981, Familyman and Junior have carried on the mission to “keep The Wailers together,” just as Bob requested, affirming. “By doing that, you keep me alive through the music.” There are more than 250 million Bob Marley & the Wailers recordings sold, including 1977’s Exodus, anointed Best Album of the Century in 1999 by Time Magazine, and “One Love,” named Song of the Millennium that same year by BBC. Spin Magazine listed Bob Marley & The Wailers at #4 of the “50 Greatest Bands of All Times,” while The New York Times named Bob Marley the most significant musicians of the 20th century. These accolades were made possible by the creative, timeless, and distinctive music, lyrics and production by these incomparable Wailers musicians.
