Saskatoon-based band The Steadies are bringing their island rock sound to the valley for one jam-packed day of music.

The band combines Top 40 sound with reggae influences, fuelled by frontman Earl Pereira, who rose to prominence as a founding member of popular Canadian band Wide Mouth Mason.

On August 7th, Mr. Pereira and his trio are set to play Music and Market on Main in Radium at 4 p.m. and Hoodoo Lounge and Grill in Fairmont around 10 p.m.

That is a busy day for us, Mr. Pereira said. It looks a little insane on paper.

At both shows, attendees will get to hear the songs from their debut album Starcity Shakedown (2013) that earned The Steadies widespread Canadian acclaim.

I think they can expect to have a great time, Mr. Pereira said. It is very uplifting and danceable for everyone. It is kind of an international style, so all ages can enjoy.

In August, The Steadies will be playing 14 shows across western Canada in 15 days. Mr. Pereira said he is excited to hit the road, but the challenge of playing that much music is daunting.

It is something we have been looking forward to all summer, Mr. Pereira said. We got so excited about scheduling it, then we looked at it on paper and thought what are we doing?

Mr. Pereira said performing throughout August will be a throwback to his earlier days in music, when he performed with one of Canadas biggest rock bands at the time.

In my Widemouth days, I would look at my schedule and see we had done 35 shows over one month, Mr. Pereira said.

It is a very energetic show, Mr. Pereira said. People are going to love it.
