The Wailers will perform in celebration of Bob Marley’s birthday at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Blue Moose, 211 Iowa Ave. Admission is $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Local musician Dave Bess will open the show.

Together with Bob Marley, the Wailers have sold more than 250 million albums worldwide.

The Wailers is the first reggae band to tour in areas others won’t, including Africa and eastern Asia.

Hailing from Jamaica, the group has succeeded in working together after the loss of its frontman, and the members want to make a mark on the music scene once again.

Bess, from the local band Public Property, will perform a new looping project he’s been working on.
