From Kingston, Jamaica the Original Wailers featuring Al Anderson brought their signature reggae sound to the Nashville City Winery. Al was an integral part of the band with his distinctive guitar work and production skills. Opening for the Wailers was Nashville's own reggae/indie rock band Floralorix.
Al Anderson (guitar) played with Bob Marley from 1973 until Bob's passing in 1981. Al has brought together some of the best musicians Jamaica has to offer to not only continue Bob's Legacy but adding to it with their own original offerings.
With Chet Samuels as front man/lead singer, the Original Wailers had the City Winery patrons on their feet dancing from the first song, and kept them there all night. A show to see!! Currently on tour in the United States the website is listed below the photos and has the upcoming show links.
Floralorix is an up and coming Nashville band that has charted their own path musically to become Nashville's premier reggae band.. But they are more than just a reggae cover band with their own unique musical style as evidenced by their recent release “Bloombox”. Floralorix is Matt Daughtry (guitar/vocals), Samantha Joelle (bass/vocals), Dan Twiford (drums/vocals), and Kent Toalson (keyboards). For more info and show dates visit their sites listed below.
