Duppy Conquerors
Electric Haze – 21 + / Doors open 6pm / Curfew 2am "Bob Marley tribute band the Duppy Conquerors consist of some of Boston’s best Reggae musicians and were recently nominated for a Boston Music Award. They are not a “Tribute Band” trying to look and dress like Bob Marley and the Wailers. They are musicians that respect the “sound and spirit” of Bob Marley and the Wailers. With nearly 3/4 of his repertoire under their belts they are the quintessential Bob Marley tribute. And by the way… The Wailers first performance in the United States was in 1973 at Paul’s Mall in Boston." http://duppyconquerors.com/
