Despite beloved reggae icon Bob Marley’s passing 35 years ago, his backing band, the Wailers, continue to keep his music and spirit alive. Led by Marley’s right-hand man and coproducer, Aston “Family Man” Barrett (bass), the Wailers—rounded out by Aston Barrett Jr. (organ), Dwayne Anglin (vocals), Joshua Barrett (vocals), Cegee Victory (vocals), Audley Chisholm (guitar and vocals), Melvin Glover (guitar), Chaka Taylor (keys) and Anthony “Benbow” Creary (drums)—play music from across Marley and the Wailers’ extensive discography. And while they perform all across the world, you won’t have to travel too far to see the Wailers (above, doing “Is This Love” two years ago at Glastonbury) when they play the Space at Westbury tomorrow night. Plus, as an added bonus, they return to open for UB40 at Terminal 5 on 8/23.
