- The Wailers are: the band that backed Bob Marley from the beginning of his career (along with Peter Tosh and Bunny Livingston) through his final days
- What they did with Bob: accentuated his songs with sandy-footed backbeats, helped popularized reggae across the globe, and sold over 250 million albums
- What they’ve done after Bob: spread his legacy, music, and message of peace and love across the farthest reaches of the world, leaving an estimated 24 million people feeling elated and mellow
- The anchor of The Wailers: bassist Aston “Family Man” Barrett, who played bandleader during Marley’s heyday, co-produced and arranged many of Marley’s biggest hits, and scored a Lifetime Achievement Award from Bass Player Magazine
- Taking the vocal reigns: Kingston native Dwayne “Danglin” Anglin, who channels Marley’s joyous pipes
- Marley hits you’re likely to hear: “I Shot the Sheriff” “Get Up, Stand Up,” “Is This Love,” and most of the hits from the Legend, which is still the best-selling reggae album of all time and recently celebrated its 30th anniversary
- 1992: the year Rusted Root began amassing their devoted fan base
- Their sound: driving rock mixed with world-music influences, boisterous vocals, and loads of percussion
- The live experience: like pogo dancing in a sweat lodge
- Where you’ve heard their signature hit, “Send Me On My Way”: in movies such as Ice Age and Matilda, the TV shows Chuck and New Girl, Enterprise Rent-A-Car commercials
- Where else you’ve heard the song: endless movie trailers and real-life situations that involve epiphanies accompanied by penny whistle solos
- What’s new: the band’s 2012 album, The Movement
- How The Movement came together: through a grassroots, fan-funded campaign
