THE WAILERS whom we have been working with for over 15 years and that headlined Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival in 2022 are coming back to Victoria to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their Legend album! Legend was released in May 1984 by Island Records and is the best-selling reggae album of all-time,
 
Long before and after the release of Legend, the Wailers have toured the globe and brought the music of Bob Marley to adoring masses wherever they go. As members have come and gone one thing that hasn't changed is the quality of the music. When The Wailers take the stage the messages of Bob Marley's classic music – the music that has got countless people through countless struggles – rings loud and clear, played with love and passion. It doesn't matter who you are, where you come from or where you're going, if you're a human being the music of The Wailers is sure to stir up big emotions and big calm deep inside your bones.
 
Victoria BC Ska & Reggae Society is so grateful to be able to celebrate this momentous 40th Anniversary Legend Album tour in the same month we are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival.
 
The Wailers will be joined by Dancehall Business ft. Tugstar, Josey Radix and One Stainless. They are a new supergroup out of Vancouver that combines the city's top Jamaican dancehall talent with seasoned musicians from the city's world music scene plus veteran DJ and producer Lt. Irie. The result is a dynamic and high-energy stage show with three distinct vocal styles. The band is compact but deadly; a 4-piece that includes the likes of Kutapira's Chris Couto and Bananafish Dance Orchestra's Harvey Paris. When it comes to the vocalists, Tugstar is an established name in his native Jamaica with hit songs on rotation. He is also known for collaborations with Latin acts such as Vancouver's Salsahall Collective and Mexico's Golden Ganga (Adan). Josey Radix has become prolific in Vancouver's reggae and hip hop circles over the past decade, honing his raggamuffin vocal skills at countless local shows and events. One Stainless is a more recent emigre from Jamaica and is an emerging artist known for his unique upbeat "clean" dancehall style and energetic performances.
 
Finally rounding out the bill is Cheko Soto & the Pozitive Rebellion. All of these musicians are Island reggae veterans and longtime Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival alumni residing in the Cowichan Valley. Cheko Soto the band's leader is native to Mexico and often finds himself playing in other legendary Mexican reggae bands that are friends of the Victoria Ska & Reggae Society such as Antidoping (whom he is featured on their most recent single) and Los Rastrillos. He spends time in both Mexico and Canada enjoying the best of both worlds.

  • The Wailers

    The Wailers

    Reggae

    Not many bands can claim genuine legend status. The Wailers comfortably claim their place in essential
    music history. Their music was, and is, culture-defining: rebel hearts with brave souls embodying the
    spirit of 70s era-defining reggae.
    The band play a special set featuring incredible cuts from Bob Marley’s formidable back catalogue along
    with a string of their greatest, classic 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.
    In late 2020, The Wailers released their first single off the album, “One World, One Prayer”, a powerful
    piece focused on unity, love and inclusion beyond cultural differences. Produced and written by Emilio
    Estefan, “One World, One Prayer“, mixes Jamaican reggae with the sounds of the urban Latin genre.
    The track features international titan Farruko, Jamaican superstar Shaggy, and continues the legacy
    of Bob Marley alongside the great man’s daughter, Cedella Marley, and her son Skip Marley.
    One World, the album that marks the Wailers’ return to the recording studios and the band’s first album
    for 25 years, was nominated for a 2021 Grammy® Award in the Best Reggae Album category.

    The essence of 70s rebellion, the true spirit of reggae performed by the people who helped forge the era-
    defining sound and by those raised under their tutelage. Living Legends, Reggae Royalty carrying the

    flame – now you can be a part of the legacy. When The Wailers come calling, you listen.
