Wailers Celebrate 40 Years of “Family Man” With Tour

The Wailers, who played with Bob Marley during his lifetime, are on the road in a trek that takes them across the U.S. The legendary reggae band is on tour in celebration of bassist Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who co-founded the band and has stayed with the group for 40 years. It was Barrett’s musical leadership that helped Marley and the Wailers reach superstardom.

The band’s current lineup includes Barrett, Koolant and Danglin on lead vocals, Keith Sterling on keyboard, Anthony Watson on drums, Audley Chisholm on rhythm guitar, and Racquel Hinds and Maria Smith on backup vocals.
