Metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk drumming and DJ scratching, and melodic horn lines are pulled from jazz and the mariachi traditions of the band’s homeland.

Now steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, old-school members welcome the new-generation talent of drummer Aston Barrett Jr. —“Fam’s” son and nephew of Wailers co-founder Carlton “Carly” Barrett—and bring their timeless, distinctive music, and intricate arrangements and lyrics to fans everywhere.
