The Wailers 

Saturday, October 21, at The Granada.

For the past 15 years, being a member of the Wailers hasn't been the easiest job in the world. It's hard enough when any lead singer leaves a band, but when that singer happens to be Bob Marley, you're pretty much shit outta luck. Then again, there's a reason that you're still reading about the band 25 years after Marley's death. Over the years, the Wailers have showcased a number of non-Marley musicians who have set the bar high for modern reggae. Bassist Aston "Family Man" Barrett has stuck with the group despite a long-running dispute with Marley's family over the ownership rights to Marley's songs. No worries — everything will be irie as long as the Wailers are onstage at The Granada. <
