Another exciting night is in store on Friday, June 3, with reggae-rock band The Radix all set to play The Galway Roast Castlebar. Bring your own wine and enjoy the special atmosphere created in this unique venue.
The Radix are an explosive reggae-rock trio fronted by dreadlocked guitar virtuoso Rion Zion, whose unique sound has been likened to a cross-fertilization of Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley. The band was formed in 2014 when Rion joined forces with drummer Keith Horan and fully qualified sound-engineer and bassist Joe Choi, with the mission of bringing up-beat skanking rock to the Irish live music scene.
Last year saw the band really start to take off with some noteable gigs such as a support slot for Sheffield's Renegade Brass Band at Sligo's prestigious 5th On Teeling. Frontman Rion Zion said: "2015 was all about bringing our vibe to new audiences and making contacts in the venues and we've had some phenomenal feedback and great support along the way.
"2016 is already looking to be a very exciting year with a regular circuit of gigs and also some festivals coming up, such as Tramore Ska Fest in March. Our next big mission is to get our debut album released. Most of the songs have been written for some time but we wanted to establish a band identity and a following before recording it. It's going to be called 'Reggaelution' and it will be a new evolution of reggae-influenced music, blending all our creative influences.”
