Smart Bets: The Original Wailers

The original Original Wailers were, of course, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston (aka Bunny Wailer, aka Jah B). But with two of those members gone from this world and Livingston currently involved with other projects, guitarist/vocalist Al Anderson (famed for his guitar part on Marley's "No Woman, No Cry") is helping the reggae group. The Wailers under Anderson have seen some lineup changes: The current roster includes Desii Hyson on keyboards and Steve Samuels on bass, among others. The group released its EP, Miracle, this spring. The band plays Asheville Music Hall on Thursday, July 19. 9 p.m., $16 in advance/$20 day of show.
