The Original Wailers 

2024 Heights Summerfest- The Original Wailers


In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as American born lead guitarist, Al Anderson. It was Anderson's stunning lead work on such classics as No Woman, No Cry, & Three O’clock Road Block, that first alerted rock fans to the Wailer’s music.

Andersons’ musical achievements with Bob Marley & The Wailers include the platinum award winning albums, ‘Live at the Lyceum’, ‘Babylon by Bus’ and ten times platinum album ‘Legend’.

The Orignal Wailers received their own Grammy nomination in 2013 for their album ‘Miracle’, making it Andersons’ second Grammy Nomination. Al Anderson is the sole member of the Bob Marley & The Wailers mid - 1970’s lineup in the Original Wailers.

The Original Wailers also include Chet Samuel (Lead Vocals / Guitar), Omar Lopez (Bass Guitar), Paapa Nyarkoh (Drums), and Adrian AK Cisneros (Keyboards and Organ) who continue the legacy of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ music.
