Samen met zanger Tjerk Schoonheim brengen ROOTSRIDERS een eerbetoon aan de in 2022 overleden frontman Henny Vrienten van Doe Maar onder de naam Henny, afscheid van een jeugdheld: een Reggae saluut.
Current lead singer Mo Ali was found through social media, all the way in Sudan, Africa. He sent the band a message that if they ever needed a guy with a voice real similar to Bob that he was the guy...the rest is history. He's been the ROOTSRIDERS lead singer since 2017.
ROOTSRIDERS are known for their spirited and fun-filled live shows honouring life and music of the King of Reggae. They've performed over 2000 shows from NYC to Istanbul and from Copenhagen to Johannesburg. Once named the world's best Bob Marley tribute band by BBC radio.
This fall ROOTSRIDERS will shine - an acoustic - light on Marley's best-selling album, released in 1984, 3 years after he'd already passed away. For many generations it has been their 1st introduction to the musical genius of the King of Reggae. Up until today it remains one of his most beloved albums.
