The Wailers
The Wailers
The legendary Wailers band returns to bring its revolutionary sound to fans around the world. Steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, and joined in solidarity with
original Wailers’ guitarists Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey, The Wailers continue to make musical history.

From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded, toured, and performed before countless millions worldwide. Since 1981, Familyman and Junior have carried on the mission to “keep The
Wailers together,” just as Bob requested, affirming: “By doing that, you keep me alive through the music.”

In tribute to the late co-founder and drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, The Wailers present Aston Barrett, Jr. on drums. It’s startling how the young powerhouse delivers with his uncle’s inspiring landmark style. Lead singer Joshua David Barrett is a Rastaman by lifestyle and culture. Josh delivers Bob’s powerful message of Jah love and unity through his performance and interaction with the audience.

Also on stage are singers Shema McGregor, daughter of I Three Judy Mowatt, and Hassanah, a multi-cultural powerhouse; veterans Owen “Dreadie” Reid on guitar/bass and Noel Davey on keyboards. The performance anchor is live engineer Dennis Thompson, the man responsible for The Wailers sound in stadiums, clubs, and studios throughout the ‘70s.

There are more than 250 million Bob Marley &The Wailers recordings sold, including 1977’s Exodus, anointed Best Album of the Century in 1999 by Time Magazine, and “One Love,” named Song of the Millennium that same year by BBC. Spin Magazine listed Bob Marley & The Wailers at #4 of the “50 Greatest Bands of All Times,” while The New York Times named Bob Marley the most significant musician of the 20th century. These accolades were made possible by the creative, timeless, and distinctive music, lyrics and production by these incomparable Wailers musicians.
Summit Dub Squad
Summit Dub Squad
Summit Dub Squad mixes and mashes Reggae, Hip Hop, Funk, Punk and Folk into a danceable and very listenable genre they classify as High Elevation Sound Flavor. What started as an evolution of the Flagstaff-based hip hop phenomenon GreenHouse Fresh Produce, Summit Dub Squad has now evolved into a full fledged stage band. DJ Soe and B Dub (of GreenHouse Fresh Produce) originally combined their beats, guitar licks and lyrics with the dubtronic basslines of Dub Doctor Paul to start a new sound. A very first show opening up for the late Joseph Hill and world renowned roots reggae supergroup CULTURE released the energies of the SDS unto the world. That was just Soe on the beat machine and turntables, B Dub rapping, singing and playing guitar and Paul laying the lowend (Greenhouse rapper AREK also joined in for the show); and the response was immediate. Now the SDS crew has added Ben the Machine on a real drums for a fuller feel and bangin' ass beats; Hunter Redday on riddim guitar, percussions and vocals, and sista Onion Grass on the viola. Together the posse has a sound unmatched by any,
