From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley and The Wailers recorded, toured, and performed worldwide, selling more than 250 million recordings. Since 1981, original band members bassist Aston “Familyman” Barrett and guitarists Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey have carried on the mission to “keep The Wailers together,” as Marley requested. Their intention is to keep Marley alive through the music. The band now includes Aston Barrett, Jr. on drums, singers Joshua David Barrett and Shema McGregor, Owen “Dreadie” Reid on guitar/bass, Noel Davey on keyboards, and live engineer Dennis Thompson, the man responsible for The Wailers sound in stadiums, clubs, and studios throughout the ‘70s.
