Feel The Movement At Outer Banks Brewing Station [Concert Preview]
Your chance to feel the modern reggae groove of The Movement is coming to Kill Devil Hills this month, live in concert at Outer Banks Brewing Station.
Formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans, Joshua Swain, Jordan Miller, and John Ruff (aka DJ Riggles) launched The Movement with their “alternative reggae” debut album On Your Feet.
In 2008, the group met Chris DiBeneditto, a Philadelphia-based producer who had worked with like-minded acts such as Slightly Stoopid and G. Love & Special Sauce. Relocating to Philadelphia, they recorded Set Sail at DiBeneditto’s Philadelphonic Studios.
The Movement expanded its lineup with the addition of Jason “Smiles” Schmidt on bass and Gary Jackson on drums. In 2012, Miller left the group, and the trio, now fronted by Swain, released their fourth album Side by Side, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Reggae Chart.
In 2014 The Movement released Beneath the Palms, a surprise acoustic album, as a free gift to their fans.
The band’s sixth studio album Golden was released on April 8, 2016 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Chart.
You can see The Movement live in concert at Outer Banks Brewing Station in Kill Devil Hills on Saturday, July 16, with local reggae three-piece Sensi Trails opening the show.
Showtime is 10:30pm.
Tickets are $13 in advance and available for online purchase here, or $15 at the door.
