The Wailers @ The Paramount - 1/20/13
The Wailers

The Wailers, Bob Marley's backing band who now tours being led by longtime bassist Aston Barrett, are on tour now performing their 1979 album, Survival, in its entirety plus a set of hits afterwards. The tour stops in NYC on Thursday (1/24) at Brooklyn Bowl for a show with Top Shotta Band. Tickets for that show are available. All remaining dates are listed below.

The tour also stopped in Long Island over the weekend for a show at Huntington's Paramount on Sunday (1/20) with Groundswell and Frank Viele. We caught that one and pictures from it are in this post. Though they're obviously without Bob Marley, our photographer said that the band is still a ton of fun to see and their hits-filled set which had songs like "Redemption Song," "I Shot the Sheriff," "Jamming," and an extended version of "Exodus," had everyone on their feet and dancing.
