One of the most popular shows of 2014 is BACK! A double header with two incredibly popular bands team up on the Ballroom stage.
Having collaborated with one another for two decades, Rusted Root, has honed the perfect combination of musical intuition, freedom and virtuosity, which has allowed them to organically shape shift their music into their own distinct and undeniable vision. With eight albums under their belt, over three million records sold worldwide and countless nights on the road, Rusted Root, transcends age, generations, cultures and musical styles. Their music has been featured in films like Ice Age, Twister and Matilda, TV shows like New Girl, Ally McBeal, Charmed and Chuck as well as recent Enterprise Rent-A-Car commercials. Bassist and vocalist Patrick Norman says, “From the very first time we played music together, I knew we had something special. The music and the enjoyment of creating and playing with one another I feel is the driving force behind this band.” The powerhouse ensemble’s sweat-inducing and hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside everyone from Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page’s reunion tour and countless others.
In 1992 Rusted Root released Cruel Sun independently and two years later, while signed to Mercury, they released their platinum-selling breakthrough, When I Woke, which spawned the Top 40 hit “Send Me On My Way,” that went on to chart on Billboard’s Hot 100. In 2004, the band released the double album Rusted Root Live on their own Touchy Pegg label, following the re-release of the newly re-mastered Cruel Sun in 2003. Rusted Root continued to tour relentlessly between the release of Cruel Sun and the 2009 release of Stereo Rodeo. Rusted Root’s Shanachie debut, The Movement (10/30/12), is an energized and poetic collection of originals that capture the Pittsburgh based unit at their best. Rusted Root founder, front man, songwriter, singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki says, "The Movement is an extremely joyous recording with seriously deep undertones. It is a culmination of everything we have learned, or have tried to learn, over our entire career. It truly is a career record for us."
There is no more legendary band in Jamaican music history than The Wailers. Formed in 1969,
the group has created an extraordinary body of work whose echoes are heard in every corner of
the world today. Original members included the man hailed as “The Artist of the 20th Century,”
Bob Marley and his vocal partners Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh, alongside the ground-breaking
rhythm section of the Barrett brothers, Carlton on drums and Aston “Family Man” on bass.
Today Aston leads the band as it continues its worldwide campaign of promoting peace, love
and equality through the message of reggae and Rastafari.
To date, The Wailers have sold over a quarter of a billion albums, including seven top-ten
entries on the British pop charts. Widely hailed appearances at major festivals include
Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and Rothbury, along with superstars such as Carlos Santana, Stevie
Wonder, Sting, the Fugees and Alpha Blondy. More than 24 million fans have seen them
performing live. In 2012 alone they played an impressive 180 concerts.
The current lineup includes the veteran keyboardist Keith Sterling, a veteran of ‘70s studio
greats, the Soul Syndicate, as well as Peter Tosh’s Word Sound and Power band. He is so
respected by his colleagues in The Wailers that they call him “Coach.” Fams’ young son, Aston
Jr., a multi-talented musician, plays organ and is the heir apparent, helping bring the music
forward to a new generation. Filling the role of lead singer is a highly disciplined young
Jamaican star on the rise, Dwayne Anglin, known as Danglin. Of particular note, he is a Navy
veteran who already holds a masters degree in criminology and is actively pursuing a Ph.D. in
that field, while nightly bringing audiences to their feet in loud acclaim for his vocal prowess.
“Drummie Zeb” excels on percussion. He is a founding member of Chicago’s Awareness Art
Ensemble, and has toured with Kenny Chesney. Lead and rhythm guitar and backing vocals are
handled expertly by Audley “Chizzy” Chisholm. Backing vocals are also supplied by the elegant
Trinidadian Cegee Victory.
Now well into their fifth decade, The Wailers truly are living legends who embody the nobility,
conviction and progressiveness of Bob Marley and his music. Their journey is far from over as
the world awaits The Wailers’ next move in their “One Love” revolution. “Our music is the
magic,” says Fams “the oxygen of the people. It’s the message of roots, culture and reality,
meant to spread peace and love to all.”
