Reunited at last! The legendary Wailers bands are back together and are bringing its revolutionary sound to the Paramount Hudson Valley Theater! For the time since the death of Bob Marley, all but one of the original members, Carlton Barret who was tragically murdered in 1987, shall come together again to make another display of musical unity! Family Man will be joined by his son, Aston Junior, on drums, along with Seeco, Way, Tyrone, Donald Kinsey and Junior Marvin. It is the moment so many reggae fans have always dreamt of, despite the many obstacles that might have been in the way. From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & the Wailers recorded, toured, and performed before 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.” 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 musicians of the 20th century. These accolades were made possible by the creative, timeless, and distinctive music, lyrics and production by these incomparable Wailers musicians.
Four-time Grammy Award nominee and multi-platinum selling sax-man Boney James needs no introduction to contemporary jazz fans. The gifted saxophonist, veteran of four RIAA gold albums, a Soul Train Award, nominations for two NAACP Image Awards and 10 #1 albums on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Albums chart, has sold over 3 million records during his career. Four of them have received Grammy nominations, including 2013’s The Beat. His latest, futuresoul, released in 2015, topped the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart for 11 weeks. Tracks such as “Drumline” and “Vinyl” show off Boney’s love of vintage soul as well as his mastery of modern digital production and signature laid back style. This incredibly accomplished artist — who broke into music in the mid-80s touring with acts such as The Isley Brothers, Morris Day (The Time), Randy Crawford and Teena Marie, and emerged as a solo force in 1992 with his breakthrough debut, Trust — has long been influenced by contemporary R&B.
