The Wailers eyeball an Ovation at Green Valley Ranch

The Wailers
Feelin’ Irie: The Wailers are coming to Green Valley Ranch.

Let’s face it, kids — you’re not going to see Bob Marley anytime soon. I mean, he’s been gone from this realm for nearly three decades now. But as close as you’re going to get to the man’s music — not counting, say, his kids Ziggy or Damian — is by seeing The Wailers, the band best known for backing up the legendary reggae singer.

Well, after selling 250 million records and playing to an estimated 24 million people worldwide, The Wailers have proven their own legacy did not die when cancer claimed the elder Marley’s life. And you can check them out with new singer Elan on Friday, March 21 or Saturday, March 22 at Green Valley Ranch Resort’s Ovation Lounge.

Elan was first discovered in Los Angeles by Wailers guitarist Al Anderson, and first performed with the band in 1997. After a brief leave of absence, Elan rejoined the band. Apparently the ganja was that good.

In between constant touring, The Wailers are working on their first studio album in 15 years, featuring, of course, guest performances from across the musical universe.
