The Gulf Coast’s short but welcome cooler weather has arrived for a day or two. However, the cooler temperatures do not stop the public from flooding local beaches. Big Beach Brewing Company plans on maintaining the area’s tropical vibe with a visit from a band hailing from the westside of the Gulf Coast. While most of the Texas music scene focuses on rock, country and blues, Galveston-based Dem chooses to dabble in reggae. This band pulls influences from Bob Marley, Desmond Dekker and The Gladiators to formulate its rocksteady sound.
Dem’s Big Beach crowd should not expect a Bob Marley tribute band, though. This group is well-versed in a variety a reggae styles. The Latin-tinged “Cuarenta Veinte” is a magical mix of jazz and reggae. “Frequency” features a mesmerizing reggae bounce and sway rhythm that could soothe any worried mind. Dem’s show should be a crowd-pleaser. The band’s versatile reggae cocktail should be a delicious way to start the weekend.
