Tribute 2 Bob Marley by Rootsriders: 40 Years Babylon By Bus by Rootsriders

Facebook event Share Tweet

Exciting new tribute to 1 of the best live recordings ever, positive vibrations only!

Europe's number 1 Bob Marley tribute pays tribute to Marley's magisterial live album Babylon By Bus 78. 40 years after release, this album still ranks as one of the best live recordings ever released. Packed with classics like Is This Love, Exodus and Stir It Up - to name just a few of the biggest - Rootsriders are eager to go on stage again. In their minibus, the band will be touring NL, BE and Europe from 15 March to 19 May to put their favorite album in the limelight! Positive vibrations guaranteed!

Rootsriders was founded in 2006 to commemorate Bob Marley's 25th anniversary. A sold-out show in one of the best pop venues in the Netherlands tasted like more and since then the band has become the best Marley tribute in Europe (and some say far beyond). In 2013, the blind audition of Rootsrid's singer Mitchell Brunings at The Voice of Holland went viral worldwide and created a lot of extra attention for the band, including some sold-out tours, together with Mitchell of course who left the band and played the leading role in the official Marley musical interpreted. Currently, Mo Ali, from Sudan, is considered by experts to be the best Marley-inspired voice in the world, and the Caribbean Tamara Nivillac is the most important singers of the band.

The front singer is an amizing entertainer. We were4 and had a really good time. The band is talented and quite fun. Music was very good. Would go back anytime they come to Ab. Peace & Love
De band was prima ; de backing vocals ladies fantastisch . Al stoorde mij het heen en weer gespeel van de zanger met het publiek . Ik had het liever wat "sec" gehoord . De vaart en de schwung ging er wat uit ...? Vond Ikke
Quelle énergie ! superbe prestation à tous les niveaux , chant, instruments, son et lumières. La mise en place des morceaux et les enchaînements exceptionnels. Que du bon !
Juste génial !!! Dommage pour eux qu'il n'y avait pas beaucoup de monde , mais perso , j'ai adoré ! One Love ;)
Excellent cover de B. Marley. Belle ambiance. Dommage le peu de public ! schauwers554985
The atmosphere before the concert was already announcing how the night will be... deep and relax. The greatest is the AB sound !!! These guys did really remember us how great was Bob Marley. Respect and lots of love
Het was Top! Kijk commentaar van Anette foreigner. Je kan nooit de meester zelf benaderen, who cares maar ik zag een uitzinnig pibliek en ik heb mij fantisch goed geamusseerd en velen rond mij dus Tx Ab voor dit reggae feesje
This is a joke? They call themselves Europes n 1 tribute to Bob Marley. Ths singer could not sing at all, he was running around jumping screaming like a muppet, where is the respect for Bob Marley in that? Both the baseplayer and the keyboardplayer sang better. The band was playing OK, but some songs in a too quick pace, the whole thing was confusing and not enjoyable. We left early because we didnt want to hear them massacre the more beautiful songs of Marley. However, the tree ladies were wonderful, they sang beautifully and they behaved gracefully.
