The Wailers

Moe's Alley 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz

Moe's Alley presents Jamaican Reggae Royalty THE WAILERS for a rare intimate performance. Buy your tickets early for this one! Not many bands can claim genuine legend status. The Wailers, however, can comfortably claim their place in essential music history. Culture defining; rebel hearts with brave souls embodying the spirit of 70s era-defining reggae. Now playing a special set featuring incredible cuts from Bob Marley’s formidable back catalogue along with a string of greatest 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. Bob Marley and the Wailers recorded, toured and made history together between 1972 and 1981. It was Bob Marley himself that requested the Wailers stayed together. Today, carrying on the mission are original members, children-of-legends and a host of immensely talented musicians. The afore mentioned Aston Barrett Jr delivers startling echoes of his uncle’s (Carlton ‘Carly’ Barrett) one drop drumming sound. Guitarist Donald Kinsey is joined by Wendel ‘Junior Jazz’ Ferraro, shaping that classic sonic identity. Josh David Barrett achieves the seemingly impossible by confidently stepping in to Bob Marley’s shoes to provide truly excellent lead vocals. Owen ‘Dreadie’ Reid (Julian Marley’s Uprising Band and a firmer student of ‘Familyman’) and Andres Lopez (Albrosie, Lutan Fyah and a former student of original Wailers member, Tyrone Downie) add yet more quality to an incredible line up.

JESSE DANIEL returns for an Album Release! Note this show was re-scheduled from April 17 2020 and all April 17 tickets will be honored. Two years after releasing his self-titled debut — an album whose songs mixed the twang of classic country with greasy, roadhouse-worthy muscle, earning its creator an Ameripolitan Award for Honky Tonk Male along the way — Jesse Daniel is Rollin' On.NOTE- Note this show was re-scheduled from April 17 2020 and all April 17 tickets will be honored.If you bought a ticket to the original April 17 2020 scheduled performance, and cannot make the new July 3rd 2020 date and you would like a refund. you can email atendeesupport@eventbrite.com to request a refund, and you will be fully refunded. Thank you for supporting live music and we look forward to seeing you back at Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz, California.Inspired heavily by the California country music that's been emanating from his home state for decades, Rollin' On finds Jesse Daniel in fighting shape, clear-eyed and inspired after overcoming the addictions that haunted his teens and early twenties. It's a record about momentum, redemption, and the realization that the darkness of your past doesn't have to dim the brightness of your present. Co-produced by Grammy-nominated legend Tommy Detamore, Rollin' On is perhaps most importantly a modern update of a timeless sound — a California country record for the 2020s, with one boot planted in the same sonic territory that Buck Owens and Merle Haggard once occupied, and the other pointed in a direction ...
