AVALON, Calif., Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bob Marley's band, The Wailers, will be featured on the fourth and final concert date on Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd, 2016 in the new concert series, LIVE @ Descanso Beach Club, next to the crystal clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, on beautiful and romantic Catalina Island.

The Wailers, with Bob Marley, have sold in excess of 250 million albums worldwide. Outside of their groundbreaking work with Marley, the Wailers have also played or performed with international acts like Sting, Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana, as well as reggae legends such as Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, playing to an estimated 24 million people across the globe.
Opening for The Wailers will be the touring band Todo Mundo, voted "Best World Music" band at the 2014 San Diego Music Awards.
Concert attendees can elect to return to Long Beach on a late boat if they elect not to stay overnight in Avalon.
Catalina has always been a favorite vacation spot of Hollywood "A-Listers", and still is, from Marilyn Monroe to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
When the Wrigley family of chewing gum fame bought Catalina in the twenties, they brought the biggest music of that the era. In more recent times, Catalina visitors have heard the music of Kenny Loggins and legendary surf guitar player, Dick Dale, and lately they have heard the music of our time, with recent performances by Snoop Dogg and Postmodern Jukebox at "Up For Whatever."
Catalina also offers an abundance of amenities including one of the only "on the beach" bars in California at Descanso Beach Club, the luxurious Island Spa, ocean front restaurants and shops, concerts by the sea, and dozens of activities and tours like the Zip Line Eco Tour, East End Adventure, Undersea Expedition, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, parasailing, and many more.
