This weekend Bob Marley’s long-time guitarist extraordinaire Junior Marvin is going to perform with his band the entire “Uprising” and “Exodus” albums from start to finish at the amazing club The Hamilton Live in Washington, DC.
Junior Marvin was by Bob Marley’s side both on stage and in the recording studio from the time of the “Exodus” album to Marley’s untimely passing. Junior, who was born in Jamaica and grew up in London, was known as the “British Jimi Hendrix” when he got a call on Valentine’s day 1977 from Bob Marley asking him to join his band.
This is a rare opportunity to see Junior Marvin perform both albums, “Uprising” on Friday, February 28th and “Exodus” on Saturday, March 1st.
