Where to find one of the best Marley cover bands

amed after the Bob Marley song meaning “killer of bad spirits,” the Duppy Conquerors live up to their title. Every Monday night, this Boston band pays tribute to the late reggae icon by filling Sally O’Brien’s with good vibes. The nine-piece group dishes out faithful renditions of more than 50 Marley tunes, and two sets are never the same. They’re only joking when they claim to be Marley’s long lost children, but you couldn’t tell from the music. By the first guitar solo, most of the easygoing bar is on its feet and dancing. Mondays at Sally’s remain cover free, even though this band has a few hundred shows under its belt. Macomber
