Not many bands can claim genuine legend status. The Wailers comfortably claim their place in essential music history. Their music was, and is, culture-defining: rebel hearts with brave souls embodying the spirit of 70s era-defining reggae.

The band play a special set featuring incredible cuts from Bob Marley’s formidable back catalogue along with a string of their greatest, classic hits. The Wailers are giving you a chance to be part of the legacy. Aston Barrett Jr, himself reggae royalty as son of the irrepressible ‘Familyman’, carries the flame for The Wailers in a show that is simply not to be missed.

In late 2020, The Wailers released their first single off the album, “One World, One Prayer”, a powerful piece focused on unity, love and inclusion beyond cultural differences. Produced and written by Emilio Estefan, “One World, One Prayer”, mixes Jamaican reggae with the sounds of the urban Latin genre. The track features international titan Farruko, Jamaican superstar Shaggy, and continues the legacy of Bob Marley alongside the great man’s daughter, Cedella Marley, and her son Skip Marley.

One World, the album that marks the Wailers’ return to the recording studios and the band’s first album for 25 years, was nominated for a 2021 Grammy® Award in the Best Reggae Album category.

The essence of 70s rebellion, the true spirit of reggae performed by the people who helped forge the era-defining sound and by those raised under their tutelage. Living Legends, Reggae Royalty carrying the flame – now you can be a part of the legacy. When The Wailers come calling, you listen.

DAVE HALCHAK – Rock/Reggae/Live Looping – Denver, CO

Dave Halchak’s live show is equal parts entertaining and enthralling. While most solo artists are bound by a single instrument, Halchak is not afraid to explore multiple dimensions and utilize his roots in both songwriting and improvisation using just his voice and guitar. By using a loop pedal to develop on-the-spot backing loops, vocal harmonies, and beatboxing, no two shows are identical and the possibilities are endless. Whether it’s original material or a carefully selected cover, it is guaranteed that Halchak veers away from the norm as a traditional singer-songwriter and cultivates a one-of-a-kind performance that appeals to a multitude of audiences.
