After what was not a one year hiatus from Kingston The Steadies were back at The Merchant Tap House on Friday and Saturday night.
I was able to catch only their Saturday night show once again this time around. This seems to be a trend now over the past couple of years with me.
Once again Right from the opening song The Steadies had the front of the stage and dance floor flooded with people. Even though there were interchanging faces throughout the night there was still a solid blockade of people ready to party it up with The Steadies.
Their brand of music is not what you are used to hearing at the Merchant or almost really in general. They take cuts and styles from many different genres and songs. They refer to Island Rock, Rock Steady, and Reggae as a main stay with their sound.
Just in the first set alone The Steadies played a good chunk of songs from their latest album titled, Love Revolution. It’s always a great sight to see when people are enjoying bands original songs as they were tonight. When I talked to Earl later on after this set which you can listen to the interview below, we talked about their ability to seemingly blend in covers with their originals to give their music an extra kick for the audience. This effect was ever fluent as it was present throughout the night as they used the stage to host an array of straight covers and originals. Just as a finishing touch I definitely have to add in you need to hear the vocal chops on Juice live at least once in your lifetime.
