Rebel music comes to Fernie

Catch Rocky Mountain Rebel Music on Saturday night.

The award-winning nine-piece band Rocky Mountain Rebel Music (RMRM) is the perfect dose of high-energy dance music for those times when you just need to get down.

Inspired by the classic sounds of reggae and ska RMRM mixes their sound up with funk break-downs, Latin flavours and straight-up rock and roll.

In addition to the usual suspects of guitar, bass and drums, RMRM features keys, two horns, auxiliary percussion and a didgeridoo-playing singer.

Seasoned road warriors, RMRM has toured extensively for the past three years throughout Canada, playing to enthusiastic crowds everywhere from friends’ backyard parties to grungy punk bars to the main stage at Open Sky Festival in Edmonton. Their time together on stage (more than 100 shows and counting) has helped them hone their craft and tighten their set, and nowhere is this more apparent than on their newest release, Vic Sound System. Their 2012 summer tour will find them headlining some of the finest festivals in Western Canada, such as The Victoria Ska Festival, Vic Fest, Shambhala, The Calgary Reggae Festival and The Big Time Out in Cumberland, BC.

Rocky Mountain Rebel Music will be in Fernie on August 4 at the Royal Hotel. Catch them before they are discovered by the masses.
