EastWave Radio was first formed by singer & guitarist Dave Gagne in 2006. Carrying on the reggae traditions of his musician parents, he formed his own band fusing roots reggae with more contemporary influences like Sublime, 311, The Police and The Clash. Through 2006 and ’07, EastWave Radio was a revolving cast of players, but in early 2008 the lineup solidified with drummer “Steady” Eddie Dickhaut and bassist/vocalist Johnny Venom. The band quickly grew a large fanbase with their popular performances every Sunday night at the Oasis nightclub in Portland Maine.
EastWave Radio is proud to release their debut EP “Soulful Noise”, and has a busy summer schedule in 2009, appearing at clubs, festivals and other venues around Portland, ME and New England. Fusing old and new school reggae with a variety of other genres, EastWave Radio delivers high energy reggae and rock every time they hit the stage.
