Bob Marley & The Wailers

Jamaican reggae band fronted by Bob Marley but initially formed as The Wailers vocal group, with Peter Tosh & Bunny Wailer, then adding the rhythm section of The Upsetters ( & ). In 1974, after Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer departures, producer chris blackwell renamed the group Bob Marley & The Wailers (even if some previous records were released with this name) and marketed it as a rock band (vocalist + instrumental band). After Bob Marley's death in 1981, The Wailers continue to record with some artists like alpha blondy, Joe Yamanaka, Donald And Lulu Davidson or Winston Jarrett. Some members of The Wailers formed the wailers band in 1989.
