The Wailers with very special guest Jah People will be playing at Havana for one night, May 8, from 7-10 p.m.

Reggae music is still defined to a large extent by the songs of Bob Marley and the Wailers. It’s their heartbeat rhythms that have inspired so much of what’s followed since, as evidenced by the enduring popularity of the “one-drop” reggae sound.

The anchor of the band in this post-Marley era is Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who in addition to being Marley’s most trusted lieutenant, played on countless other classic reggae hits throughout the seventies, says the promotional literature. The authenticity he brings to the Wailers’ sound is indisputable and yet today’s line-up combines old school know-how with lead vocals from one of Jamaica’s most exciting new singers.

Show 7-10 p.m.; Doors 6 p.m.; Jah People 7 p.m.; The Wailers 8-10 p.m. General Admission – Standing. Must be 21 to attend.

Tickets: $35; also Havana Ticket Line (215) 862-1933. No refunds on ticket sales.
