A stunning line up, featuring genuine reggae royalty and heir to the throne, Aston Barrett Jr (son of the legendary ‘Familyman’) and guitarist Donald Kinsey will conjure the spirit of reggae in the way that only they can in a show that is absolutely not to be missed. Josh David Barrett achieves the seemingly impossible by confidently stepping in to Bob Marley’s shoes to provide a truly fantastic lead vocal.

Bob Marley and The Wailers recorded, toured and made history together between 1972 and 1981.  It was Bob Marley himself who requested the Wailers stay together.  Today, carrying on the mission are legitimate members, children of legends, and a host of immensely talented musicians.  Aston Barrett Jr. delivers startling echoes of his uncle’s (Carlton “Carly” Barrett) one drop drumming sound.  Guitarist Donald Kinsey is joined by Wendel “Junior Jazz” Ferraro, shaping that classic sonic identity.  Owen “Dreadie” Reid (Julian Marley’s Uprising Band and a former student of “Familyman”) and Andres Lopez (Albrosie, Lutan Fyah) add yet more quality to an incredible line up that also includes the youngest of the earliest formation of the Wailers, Tyrone Downie, saxophone player Glen Dacosta and Dennis Thompson, the engineer who was there from the very beginnings of the band.  Anne-Marie Thompson (a gospel singer of stunning ability) and Tamara Barnes who has been in the music industry for over 20 years provide backing vocals in studio and on stage for I-Threes, Jimmy Cliff, Ky-Mani Marley, Beres Hammond and Freddie McGregor among many others.  Together they bring the smoothest backing vocals, contributing to this unique melting pot, both classic and excitingly fresh at the same time.
