Reggae Night at The Wild Detectives

Event Details

Our Backyard Shows are back and we’re opening the season celebrating the most inspiring thing that came out of Jamaica besides its 1988 bobsled team: Reggae! Get ready for a night of deep basses, offbeat rhythms and footloose dancing.

Dem is a roots reggae, rocksteady sextet based in Galveston, TX. Interested in the anthropological process of music, Dem embraced reggae upon its formation with influences such as The Gladiators, Desmond Dekker, The Meters, Orchestra Baobab, and Cultura Profetica to name a few. Dem have been featured in Galveston Parrot magazine, The Islander, Houston Press, and have performed SXSW, and local festivals around Houston such as Pearland Crawfish festival and Mardi Gras.

Johnny Love is a band based out of Orange County CA that blends styles such as latin roots, reggae, dancehall, cumbia, ska, dub… Live energetic and definitely passionate Johnny Love brings a not so average reggae show, but something to remember!! This music coming straight off the Barrio scene in Santa Ana CA.

Dj Gabe Mendoza will close the night with an all vinyl session that’ll cover decades of reggae hits and hidden gems.

On Saturday June 11, Jamaican bliss at The Wild Detectives. Yah man!
