The Wailers Return To The Smith Opera House


In October 2007 Hobart and William Smith Colleges brought The Wailers to the Smith Opera House and more than 1000 students and community members packed the Smith for a great two hour show of old and new reggae music.

Then Managing Editor of The Herald- Trippe Duke – wrote in the HWS paper’s review “students and Geneva community members turned out in droves to catch one of the best shows that has been through the area in a while”

Now, The Wailers are coming back to Geneva! The Smith Opera House presents The Wailers on Sunday – April 1st, 2012.
