THE STRIDES + BOBBY ALU *Single Launch* (Bris) @ Venue 505
Location280 Cleveland St, Sydney, NSW 2010 Australia
Hey Everyone! So The Strides have been recovering from our epic 6-week national tour and itching again to play some Reggae music! Luckily for us and you, we have some exciting shows coming up with some very good friends from Brizzy dropping by to share the love!
THE STRIDES (SYD) and BOBBY ALU (BRIS)
Don’t miss this rare chance to catch two of Australia’s most unique Roots acts as they join forces for two unforgettable nights of “homegrown” Reggae music.
The Strides – Sydney
Hailing from Sydney, THE STRIDES have become a new force for urban roots music. Fronted by Reggae Master Ras Roni from Barbados via London, and Fijian LTL GZEUS, The Strides have brought their classic sound to crowds across the country, delivering a musical experience that is as powerfully explosive as it is authentic.
Bobby Alu – Brisbane
Island soul, Afro rhythms, smooth harmony, coconuts, pop and good vibes: Queensland’s latest world‑class offering is taking the Australian roots music scene by storm.
Bobby Alu is the musical alter ego of Charles Wall, an accomplished songwriter, multi‑instrumentalist, and producer. His Polynesian heritage and passion for World music are the foundations of Bobby Alu. An obsession with percussion and drums has led to him being one of the top, most sought‑after drummers in the country. When he’s not gracing the stages as Bobby Alu, Wall is touring the world as a drummer. He will be playing drums with Xavier Rudd on his upcoming North American tour and continues collaborating with progressive roots/dance trio, OKA. Bobby Alu’s rapid popularity and repeat festival invitations further compliment his already stellar CV. 2013 is looking very bright for
Bobby Alu fans, old and new, across the country.
Bobby Alu will be promoting the release of their second album “Take it Slow”.
