Tonight! The Original Wailers Bring Reggae Pioneers to Revolution
Marvin, who has also been associated with Toots & the Maytals and Steve Winwood, split off from those Wailers in 1997 to pursue a solo career and enjoyed moderate success on his own until 2008. That's when he decided to join forces with Al Anderson, who played with both Tosh and Marley, to form the Original Wailers -- a name likely based on the fact that two former members of Marley's band are in this group. The night should feature plenty of familiar material from the Marley back catalog.
