Reggae legends The Wailing Souls are part of the small surviving group of reggae and roots originators still performing and recording today. The group dates back to the late 1960s. The band’s members got their start learning from reggae icon Joe Higgs in Jamaica’s Trench Town yards and sung alongside other emerging groups at the time including Bob Marley & The Wailers. By the ’70s they attracted interest from pre-eminent reggae producer Coxson Dodd and began a fruitful recording career. Fusing the harmonies of Motown with the roots and dancehall sounds of reggae, The Wailing Souls persist as one of the most powerful forces in Jamaican music. To this day, the group continues to release provocative, highly regarded regarded albums and are one of the most popular live reggae bands working in the world today. Advance booking recommended.

Tickets for this concert include free admission to King Cosmic Sound official Wailing Souls Aftershow party with the bass bins up on full ’til 2am.

This event will begin at 9pm.
