Outdoor Stage: Saturday 29 July
Founded by Oliver Bohm and Gilroy Guedes, Rice n Peas have caught the attention of Reggae lovers across the country and also picked up industry interest along the way.
Through a shared love of Rock-Steady Reggae and Rhythm & Blues, the band formed with a vision to create an authentic sound with an aim to transform the lack of mainstream success the genre had back in the 70’s and 80’s. Transforming songs from a range of genres into feel-good Reggae jams, audiences find themselves appreciating the well known songs in a fresh, uplifting way.
Rice n Peas represents the relevance of what their instrument plays into each song though characterisation, re-telling the stories of the songs Rice n Peas have shaken from the ground. Listeners can expect to be challenged and to also be put at harmonic ease, taking them back to the roots and history of the mighty romantic Lovers Rock it once was.
