Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason will bring the sights and sounds of 70s rock to Rocky Mount on May 10 at the Harvester Performance Center.

Mason, a guitarist, songwriter and solo artist, founded the band Traffic with Steve Winwood while they were in their teens. The band released its biggest hit, "Feelin' Alright," in 1968.

Throughout his long music career, Mason has worked with members of rock and roll's elite, including Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills, Rita Coolidge, Leon Russell, Ron Wood and Mama Cass Elliot.

Tickets to the show are $35 in advance. VIP tickets, which include access to the sound check, photo op and choice seating, are available for $90. The box office opens at 2 p.m. the day of the show.

Also performing at the Harvester this weekend is The Wailers, Bob Marley's iconic reggae band. The band is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of "Legend," named by Time Magazine as the Best Album of the 20th Century. It's also the best-selling reggae album of all time with over 30 millions copies sold worldwide.

The Wailers have consistently toured for the past 40 years, keeping the legacy of Bob Marley alive. 

The Wailers, led by Aston "Family Man" Barrett, will perform Friday, May 9 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $24 in advance and $28 the day of show. The box office opens at 2 p.m. Friday. Doors open at 8 p.m. for the show.
