Known the world over for their Grammy-nominated reggae sound and led by guitarist Al Anderson, The Original Wailers are the perfect capstone to the action-packed Saturday night in the Alltech Arena. In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist, American born Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as No Woman, No Cry, Dem Belly Full, and Curfew (Three O’clock Road Block) that first alerted rock fans to the Wailers’ music. Over a billion dollars worth of Marley’s music featuring Al Anderson’s evocative guitar work has been sold worldwide. Al has also played with Peter Tosh, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Steel Pulse, Aswad, Inner Circle, Traffic, and Ben Harper. Fronted by Al Anderson, The Original Wailers carry forward the true spirit of the original music and the message of “One Love”.
