MU­SIC MU­SI­CAL MELT­ING POT BAND SAYS FREO ‘GET US’

Cockburn Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

GET lost in the smooth reg­gae sound of Aus­tralian band OKA when they re­turn to Fre­man­tle for two shows on their WA tour.

De­scrib­ing their sound as ‘Bob Mar­ley meets Ste­vie Won­der via The Chem­i­cal Brothers’, OKA were in­vited to per­form at the Au­gusta River Fes­ti­val be­fore de­cid­ing to share the love around, adding four more WA shows be­fore jet­ting off to Queens­land.

Band mem­ber Stu Fergie said it was an easy choice to book two gigs in North Fre­man­tle.

“We have the long­est con­nec­tion with North Freo, it’s been a bit of a home away from home,” he said.

“It’s hard to ex­plain, but we have al­ways loved the vibe and the en­ergy of the peo­ple in North Freo, it’s one of those places in the world that re­ally seems to get our unique sound.

“Our shows will be a high en­ergy hy­brid of elec­tric beats, juju rhythms, mar­i­nated in some true Aus­tralian Dream­time earth sounds and pos­i­tive vibes. So if you want to have a dance, an OKA night is the place to be.”

OKA will be per­form­ing at Mo­jos Bar on March 3 and the Indi Bar on March 4.

Fus­ing reg­gae, R’n’B and dance mu­sic, OKA re­turn to North Fre­man­tle next month for two shows.
