The Wailers - Keeping the Music Alive The legendary Wailers band returns to bring its revolutionary sound to fans around the world. Steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, and joined in solidarity with original Wailers’ guitarists Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey, The Wailers continue to make musical history. From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded, toured, and performed before countless 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.” In tribute to the late co-founder and drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, The Wailers present Aston Barrett, Jr. on drums. It’s startling how the young powerhouse delivers with his uncle’s inspiring landmark style. Lead singer Joshua David Barrett is a Rastaman by lifestyle and culture. Josh delivers Bob’s powerful message of Jah love and unity through his performance and interaction with the audience. Also on stage are singers Shema McGregor, daughter of I Three Judy Mowatt, and Anne-Marie Thompson, an experienced gospel singer; veteran Owen “Dreadie” Reid on guitar/bass and Andres Lopez on keyboards.
The Medicinals - Forged out of a mutual love for classic reggae music, this 11 piece roots orchestra fronted my singer/songwriter Dylan Savage, of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, is now performing their deep original cuts and heavy tribute tracks all over NY state and beyond. The act is a crew of friends from the ROC that get together and jam heavy riddums and kick irie vibes proper. Dave Bernis was an old mutual friend to all. For Dave, the band was a therapy and a natural medicine. The Medicinals current line up features members from Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad, Mosaic Foundation, Personal Blend, The Level 7 Experience, RootsCollider, Hybrid Beats, Subsoil, Eli Flynn & the Everymen, and Electric Tie Die. The Medicinals have had the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as: The Wailers, Turkuaz, Barika, Danielle Ponder & the Tomorrow People, Double Tiger, Roots of Creation, Kevin Kinsella's Bead & Bone, and Root Shock.
