One of Canada’s most popular touring bands will perform twice at the 66th annual Penticton Peach Festival.

The Steadies created island rock by taking popular Top 40 sound and mixing it with rocksteady and reggae influences. They have headlined countless festivals and have showcased at the 2010 Winter Olympics and the Grey Cup. This summer their performances include Canada Day in Ottawa, the Calgary International Reggae Festival, Duncan Music Festival and the Nanaimo Bathtub Festival.

“We’re extremely pleased to have The Steadies coming to Peachfest,” said entertainment director Bill Kolter. “They create an incredible party atmosphere every time they step on the stage.”

Frontman Earl Pereira got his rock n’ roll pedigree as a founding member of Wide Mouth Mason, who had two gold records and three Juno nominations. Pereira was named as one of Canada’s top bass players by Canadian Music Magazine and has been featured on MTV.

The Steadies will be appearing in Penticton just in advance of their new full-length album, Starcity Shakedown, due out in September. The band will be on the main stage in Okanagan Lake Park on Aug. 8 and Aug. 10.
