Flyer for a November 1991 Bunny Wailer concert in Jamaica

Tucked away inside a copy of Woodcarving Illustrated1 by Roger Schroeder and Paul McCarthy were three concert flyers.

They are all for a concert that featured Bunny Wailer and was held on November 23, 1991, in the resort town of Negril, Jamaica.

(If you went, let us know how it was. We would like a set list, too.)

Bunny Wailer was a founding members of the reggae group Bob Marley and the Wailers, along with Marley and Peter Tosh (both of whom died in the 1980s).

His birth name, of course, is not Bunny. He was born Neville O'Riley Livingston and, in addition to Bunny Wailer, he has gone by these names:

  • Bunny Livingston
  • Bunny O'Riley
  • Jah B

As for the "Don Dada" reference on the flyer, the Urban Dictionary tells us that it's a superlative that transcends a mere don.

Don Dada is defined as "A combination of Don and Dada. Meaning the top pimp, the biggest player, and even one step above mack daddy."

So there you have it.
