New name, same party rock sound for Canadian band

The Steadies play with Luke Guthrie at Diners Rendezvous Feb. 12

The Steadies aren’t invited to the party – they are the party.

The Steadies take the popular Top 40 sound and mix it with rocksteady and reggae influences, creating what they’ve dubbed, “island rock.”

The Steadies’ frontman Earl Pereira got his rock ’n’ roll pedigree as a founding member of the highly successful Canadian band Wide Mouth Mason.

The Steadies’ established lineup also includes Trinidadian guitar prodigy, Justin ‘Juice’ Lee and talk show host/drummer Jason Hattie.

The group hit the ground running with the momentum that Mobadass built over the last five years  – the band changed their name to The Steadies in 2011. They were showcased at the 2010 Winter Olympics and The Grey Cup and have headlined countless festivals across Canada.

In between touring, the band plans to release a full-length album in 2012. Before then, the band plays with Luke Guthrie at Diners Rendezvous Feb. 12. Tickets $15/advance; $20/door. Please call 250-740-1133.
