Bearfoot at Solbar

8:00 PM
Solbar
Maroochydore, Australia
Sunshine Coast roots/reggae gurus, Bearfoot have had a massive 18 months, and after some quiet time, as well as days in the studio, the boys are BACK with a string of dates.

We’re coming back home to Solbar for a huge show, bringing those legends, Mar Haze along for the ride. And, as a special treat, we’ve got The Cumquats on board too. Oh man, this is going to be massive.

$10 on the door, and doors at 8pm.




Bearfoot -
Blending So-Cal, Hip Hop and dub reggae with a dash of the Endless Summer soundtrack thrown in, Bearfoot’s sun-soaked-yet-dark take on roots, reggae & dub has sent ripples through the country, and even over the ditch.
You could blame their highly energetic, sweat-drenched live performances, or their ability to create catchy melodies, but whatever the case, Bearfoot have been turning heads wherever they (and/or their music) go.
Mixing a solid rhythm section made up of fat bass and steadfast drums with percussive flare, bubbling keys, dubby guitars, horn lines that won’t quit, and vocal harmonies to support vocalist Asher Chapman’s passionate rapid-fire vocals, Bearfoot unashamedly bring their own take on Australian Roots/Reggae music.
Debut single, ‘Babylon’ got them noticed, and grabbed the attention of community radio. ‘Impolite’ - produced by Paul Bromley at the Tanuki Lounge in Brisbane’s West end - put them on the map (Roots’N’All on Triple J dug it, being used throughout 2016 as part of the program’s intro), and scored them a Queensland Music Award in the process (Best Blues/Roots Release).
Come to 2016, and the era of the ‘TRiBE’ EP was put into effect, including later singles ‘Dreamer’ and ‘Could Be Worse’ which kept the ball rolling.
When you add all these releases (including two remixes, in a short time, too) with constant performances and festival appearances, including massive shows at Woodford Folk Festival (2015/16), Caloundra Music Festival (2015/16), Ocean Street World Festival, Big Pineapple Music Festival, Australian Music Week (Sydney) and a showcase at BIGSOUND 16, then it is without a doubt that Bearfoot would be looking forward to their 2018.
Having already clocked up festival appearances in 2017 (including a visit to Luminate Festival in New Zealand), expect brand new material from Bearfoot mid-2018, which will expand on, and progress from the ‘TRiBE’ EP, as well as a huge East Coast tour.

Mar Haze -

Mar Haze is dropping its fresh new track ‘Wonderland’ today, Friday, April 6, along with a new film clip to accompany the playful song.

The single comes just three weeks ahead of the release of the band's second EP ‘Good Money’ set to drop on Friday, April 27.

Wonderland kicks off with a vivid guitar intro that smoothly transitions into a laid back drum beat – a really intriguing aspect that has fans describing the track as, “leaving you wanting more”.

Front man Pat Kelly, explains the blend of synth-pop and rock is the perfect teaser ahead of the release of the band’s EP.
