Steady Riot is an original reggae band from the Willamette Valley in the beautiful, green state of Oregon. The band began to take form in the fall of 2011when bassist Dominic Upshaw and lead-guitarist Ryan Brooks parted ways with prior band mates in search of a new sound. Dom and Ryan soon met up with Ben Calhoun and Mike Ahue – singer/songwriters from the state of Hawaii who added a fresh and soothing island-reggae vibe. While mastering and redefining American Reggae, the band was introduced to Danny Alter as their drummer.
After nearly winning their first show in Portland’s Battle of the Bands, Steady Riot has continued to blaze a trail in the reggae scene. Having had their music showcased on radio stations and in front of live audiences, Steady Riot is the burning coal in a stack of hay and their passion for music is the insatiable flame. Currently, the band is working on its first self-titled E.P. which is expected to be completed in the fall of 2013. Step into Portland, follow the buzz, make your way to the front of the crowd, and see the hottest Reggae band in the Northwest… Steady Riot!
