Bass Player Presents: The Wailers, March 21st at the Independent in San Francisco
Bass players will debate who is the greatest of all time forever, but Bass Player Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Aston “Family Man” Barrett is positively of the most influential bassists in the history of the planet. Without Family Man—the Architect of Reggae—Bob Marley & the Wailers’ sound would never have been as innovative, potent, or infectious.
Family Man still leads the Wailers from the low end, and these days he’s got his multi-talented son Aston Barrett Jr. handing keys, drums, bass—whatever the need may be on a given night. When Barrett Jr. gets behind the kit and cops his uncle Carlton Barrett’s signature one-drop grooves along with Family Man’s distinctively woven lines and subby tone, it’s as high a vibe as you’ll find anywhere on Earth. The Wailers’ 30th Anniversary of Legend tour soars into the Independent March 21st and 22nd. Tickets are already sold out, but there's still a chance to win to get in on the 21st!
