Wailers tickets giveaway!


There is no better place in the Delmarva to see a reggae show than the State Theater in Falls Church, VA.  This is why I was glad to see that The Wailers will once again bless the State on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016.


Thanks to the great folks over at the State Theater we have a pair of tickets to give away to this show!  Just need to test your Wailers knowledge first…

Included here are five questions to test your knowledge of Bob Marley and the Wailers.  Please submit your answers to the trivia questions directly to me at midnightraverblog@gmail.com.  The first person to email the correct responses will have two free tickets awaiting them at the State Theater box office on the night of the show.


  1. Prior to forging a career in music Bob Marley worked as an industrial trades apprentice doing what job (Hint:  He nearly blinded himself at work while performing the job)?
  2. Which song from the Uprising LP (Tuff Gong, 1980) was banned in Jamaica?
  3. It is rumored that Bob’s final words to his son David “Ziggy” Marley were “Money can’t buy life.”  Interestingly, this is also the title of an early 1960s Jamaican tune written by whom?
  4. Aston “Family Man” Barrett’s instrumental “Distant Drums” forms the rhythm for which Yabby You tune?
  5. As a youth, Wailers’ current drummer Ernest “Drummie Zeb” Williams played in which well-known Richmond, VA roots reggae outfit?

BONUS:  Upon Bunny Wailer’s abrupt departure from The Wailers in 1973, who sat in on keys and percussion for Jah B on The Wailers’ Burnin’ tour in the fall of 1973?
