The band you’ve known as Mobadass is now known as The Steadies! Same great band, same wicked style, but poppa’s got a brand new name.
The Steadies take the explosively popular Top 40 sound and mix it with rocksteady and reggae influences, creating what they’ve dubbed, “island rock.” No matter your mood, The Steadies pick you up and carry you to the beach in your mind, the club in your dreams, the place you go to clear your head and dance. It’s a scene where rumbling fault lines rip open the dance floor, and the only thing that keeps you from falling over is the gravitational pull of the steady beat. The Steadies aren’t invited to the party --- they are the party.
The Steadies’ frontman Earl Pereira got his rock n’ roll pedigree as a founding member of the highly successful Canadian band Wide Mouth Mason, who had three gold records, three Juno nominations, and a host of other accolades and awards. Pereira has toured the world, playing over 3000 shows and opening for iconic artists like The Rolling Stones, Alanis Morissette, AC/DC, and Nelly Furtado. He was named one of Canada’s top bass players by Canadian Music Magazine and has been featured on MTV, Muchmusic, and the Ryan Seacrest Show, as well as in publications like Rolling Stone Magazine and The National Post. The Steadies’ established line up also includes Trinidadian guitar prodigy, Justin 'Juice' Lee and drum phenom Lex Moon.
Hitting the ground running, demand for The Steadies is already high with 100 shows booked a year the past 3 years. The Steadies have played with talent such as The Wailers, Ziggy Marley, Bedouin Soundclash, K-OS, and many more. They were showcased at the 2010 Winter Olympics and The Grey Cup and have performed countless festivals across Western Canada including Victoria Skafest, Vancouver Fusion Fest, Calgary Reggaefest, Sask Jazzfest, Regina Summer Invasion, Keowna Center of Gravity and more.
The band recently released their second full-length album Love Revolution digitally world-wide in July 2016.
