SLCene Suggests: The Original Wailers at Park City Live

by on December 5, 2014


THE ORIGINAL WAILERS, PARK CITY LIVE, Saturday, Dec. 6, 9 p.m., $20

Granted, we all know the “original” Wailers including a couple of guys named Bob Marley and Peter Tosh in the mix, so the version that tours under that name has some serious baggage to deal with when it comes to skeptics in the crowd. But the current version, under the name the Original Wailers, DOES have a couple of guys who played huge roles in Marley’s later career, particularly the Exodus album. Both Al Anderson and Junior Marvin are serious players, and they’ve surrounded themselves with talented cats who are passionate about keeping the spirit of Bob alive. I’ve seen the Original Wailers do their thing, and while it’s not necessarily the “original” real thing, they are just fine at kicking up a funky reggae party.
