The Original Wailers
The Original Wailers
In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing as his lead guitarist the soft spoken, American-born Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as No Woman, No Cry, Dem Belly Full and Curfew (Three O’ Clock Road Block) that first alerted rock fans to the Wailers’ music. Over a billion dollars worth of Marley’s music featuring Al Anderson’s evocative guitar work has been sold worldwide. Al has also played with the Peter Tosh, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Steel Pulse, Aswad, Inner Circle, Traffic and Ben Harper.

Al Anderson is the sole member of the Wailers mid-1970s line-up in The Original Wailers. The reformed configuration includes Chet Samuel (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Omar Lopez (Bass Guitar), Dyrol Randall (Drums) and Dane Cole (Keyboards and Organ) that carry forward the true spirit and realities of the original music and the message of “One Love”.

Nappy Riddem
Since releasing their debut album on Fort Knox Recordings in 2011, NAPPY RIDDEM has been busy touring nationwide and releasing a string of remixes, transforming itself into an uplifting and conscious reggae band that is funky enough to pack the dancefloor. Started by Mustafa Akbar and Rex Riddem, NAPPY RIDDEM is now joined in the studio and on stage by drummer Jon Modell as part of a six piece live band.

In 2013 Nappy Riddem released “The Rock Steady EP” and was awarded “Best Reggae Recording” by the Washington Area Music Association, in 2014. Nappy Riddem stepped out of the studio to focus on touring. They’ve toured north, south, east and west. The Riddem crew had the pleasure of supporting the English Beat, Go-Go rockers Experience Unlimited, Lee Scratch Perry, and Bob Marley’s Legendary Guitarist Junior Marvin. Junior Marvin also selected Nappy Riddem to mentor and tour with him as his backing band during their California tour. The Highlight of which was headlining Joshua Tree Music Festival. Nappy Riddem’s performances meld Reggae, Rock, and Soul together into their unique brand of “Dancehallfunk”
