Franklin, OH (PRWEB) September 2, 2010
JD Legends Entertainment complex has just announced Reggae musicians The Wailers to close out the summer concert season. The Wailers will take the stage on September 25 at 9 pm. The doors will open at 6pm. You can call 937-746-4950 or go to http://www.jdlegends.com for more details.
Together with Bob Marley, the Wailers have sold in excess of 250 million albums worldwide. In England alone, they've notched up over 20 chart hits, including seven Top 10 entries. Outside of their groundbreaking work with Marley, the Wailers have also played or performed with international acts like Sting, the Fugees, Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, and Alpha Blondy, as well as reggae legends such as Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Burning Spear. As the greatest living exponents of Jamaica's reggae tradition, the Wailers have completed innumerable other tours, playing to an estimated 24 million people across the globe. They have also been the first reggae band to tour new territories on many occasions, including Africa and the Far East.
Reggae music has never stopped evolving but for millions of people from around the world it's still defined by the songs of Bob Marley and the Wailers. It's been their heartbeat rhythms that have inspired so much of what's followed since, as evidenced by the enduring popularity of the "one-drop" reggae sound.
The anchor of the band is Aston "Family Man" Barrett, who in addition to being Marley's most trusted lieutenant, played on countless other classic reggae hits throughout the seventies. The authenticity he brings to the Wailers' sound is indisputable and yet today's line-up combines old school know-how with lead vocals from one of Jamaica's most exciting new singers.
