A band featuring Bob Marley’s former lead guitarist is set to hit the stage in Oakville next month.

Al Anderson is set to perform with the reggae group called the Original Wailers on Feb. 8, 2023, at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts.

The Original Wailers also include Chet Samuel, Omar Lopez, Howard Smith and Noel Aiken who all continue the legacy of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ music.

In 1974 when Marley embarked on his solo musical journey, he chose Anderson as his lead guitarist. Anderson’s lead work is featured in classics such as “No Woman, No Cry” and “Three O’Clock Road Block”. In 2013, The Original Wailers received their own Grammy nomination for their album Miracle.

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

The upcoming show in Oakville will begin at 8:00 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now and start at $74.
