Say you missed your chance to hear the Wailers back in the late 60s when Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh grabbed the Barrett brothers from another band and became a reggae sensation. Suppose you’ve always wanted to hear selections from the Wailers’ seminal album Legend performed live. You thought your wish would never come true, right? Wrong. The Wailers, now fronted by original bassist Aston “Family Man” Barrett, will be in Fort Wayne at Piere’s Entertainment Center on Saturday, March 7 when they’ll be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Legend’s release by treating fans to an evening of some of the band’s most beloved hits. In addition to songs from Legend, the Wailers – Barrett on bass, Aston Barrett Jr. on organ, Anthony “Benbow” Creary on drums, Audley “Chizzy” Chisholm on lead guitar, Cegeee Victory on vocals, Dwayne “Danglin” Anglin on vocals, Joshua David on vocals and rhythm guitar, Keith Sterling on keyboards and Melvin“Ras Mel” Glover on rhythm guitar – will also perform pieces from 1977’s Exodus, named by Time magazine as the album of the 20th Century. It’s safe to say that the Wailers were instrumental (pun intended) in introducing the U.S. and Western Europe to reggae, as well as the Rastafarian religion. When the original group split up in 1974, Marley went on to a very successful solo career. He died in 1981 of cancer, but not before his friend and bandmate, “Family Man” Barrett, swore a vow to keep his legacy alive. “My life with The Wailers has been an odyssey ... We’ve come so far,” Barrett said. “Sharing this music with so many people around the world was my last promise to Bob, and here we are.” Rusted Root and Adam Ezra will open the show.
