This One Time at a Wailers Concert

Bailey Louise Davis

Words cannot express the excitement reverberating in The Rave when the highly anticipated band, The Wailers, treaded the stage. The Wailers brought hot rhythms from Jamaica to chilly Milwaukee on Feb. 11. The band lifted the crowd to new heights of love and unity. The Rastafarian culture medicated the crowd as the spirit and philosophy of Bob Marley came alive. The crowd varied in ethnicity, age and race, but the feeling of acceptance embraced the crowd. People can easily relate to reggae because the truthful lyrics resonate with struggle and the pursuit of a beautiful life. The Wailers do not disappoint. “The Uprising Tour” represents yellow, red and green. The live experience of The Wailers gave me a greater appreciation for the ambition of Bob Marley’s rebel music.
