The Ries Brothers
(pronounced ”Rees”), a duo from Clearwater, FL, blend rock, blues, funk, and reggae into a soulful-sophisticated sound. Older brother Charlie sings lead vocals while simultaneously playing drums and keyboard bass giving the band its unique and full sound. Younger brother Kevin Jordan completes the band’s “sonic creativity” on guitar, ukule, melodica, theramin and provides background vocals along with co-writes many of their songs. The band started playing the Florida bar circuit as young teenagers where they were discovered by the band CHICAGO
and taken out on two Regional tours prompting them to leave school and focus on music full time.
The Brothers inimitable live performances have captured fans across the musical landscape leading to marquee support slots and major festival bookings. Over the last 4 years, they've supported major artists including G Love & Special Sauce, Stick Figure, 311, Pepper, Stephen Marley, Iration, Ballyhoo! and Galactic.
Opener: Lola Rising
Lola Rising is an Island Folk Rock band also known as "Jahawaiian" that is ukulele driven with high energy melodic dance rhythms and soaring guitars. Combining Lola Rising's dance rhythms with their vocal harmonies, makes for a perfect storm to bring everyone together for an amazing singalong dance party. The six piece hailing from Colorado has quickly risen with dates alongside The Wailers, Matisyahu, The Green, The Wailing Souls, The Movement, Trevor Hall and Rusted Root.
Inspired from a song frontman, Paul Medina Guevara, once wrote about the passing of his `Lola` (means Grandmother in Filipino), coupled with `Rising` evokes images of spirituality and embraces the human condition. Their dance-able rhythms, honest poetry, and smooth melodic multi-part harmonies makes their music familiar, fun, accessible, vivid, and thought-provoking.
