Led by Al Anderson, the sole remaining member from the original 70s band, The Original Wailers continue the legacy of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ unforgettable music, receiving their own GRAMMY nomination in 2013 for their album Miracle.

Anderson, lead guitarist for Bob Marley from 1974, was responsible for the stunning song-writing on such classics as 'No Woman, No Cry' and 'Three O’clock Road Block' that first alerted rock fans to the Wailers' music. His musical achievements with Bob Marley & The Wailers include the platinum award winning albums Live at the Lyceum, Babylon By Bus and ten times platinum album Legend.

Along with Anderson, the current all-star line up also features Chet Samuel (lead vocals / guitar), Omar Lopez (bass), Paapa Nyarkoh (drums), and Adrian AK Cisneros (keyboards and organ).

Joining on support is Birmingham roots-reggae group Young Culture Band.
