The Original Wailers is a reggae group led by Al Anderson, best known for his extensive work with Bob Marley. In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the soft spoken, American-born Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as No Woman, No Cry, Dem Belly Full and Curfew that first alerted rock fans to the Wailers’ music. Over a billion dollars worth of Marley’s music featuring Al Anderson’s evocative guitar work has been sold worldwide. Al has also played with the Peter Tosh, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Steel Pulse, Aswad, Inner Circle, Traffic and Ben Harper.
The Original Wailers are available for corporate events, private parties, milestone celebrations (wedding, anniversary, birthday, bar/bat mitzvah), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
