In continuation of its Fall 2019 Performance Series lineup, the Miami Design District welcomed The Wailers on Friday, Nov. 8, in Palm Court. Produced by 19-time Grammy Award-winning producer Emilio Estefan in collaboration with Maestro Eduardo Marturet of
The Miami Symphony Orchestra, the concerts are free and open to the public.
The legendary Wailers continue their quest to bring reggae to the forefront of the world’s stage as previously led by the late great Bob Marley. Bob’s legacy is carried by renowned bassist Aston “Familyman” Barrett, and joined by original Wailers guitarist Donald Kinsey.
Following Bob Marley’s untimely passing, Barrett vowed to hold the band together and maintain the music’s quality, just as Bob requested. Today, the band is made up of legends, children-of-legends and many other talented musicians.
Led by frontman Josh Barrett, the band gave an energetic performance while the crowd cheered, danced and sang along to classic hits like Could You Be Loved; No Woman, No Cry, and One Love.
