Dirty Heads & Pepper
Please Note: This event is from 2014.
Dirty Heads is an award winning reggae/rap/indie-rock band that brings forth a laid-back quality to their sound. They will be joined by Pepper and AER during their 2014 summer tour coming to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.
Founded in 1996 by Jared Watson and Dustin Bushnell, the band's origins began within Bushnell's garage. The initial duo wrote hip-hop songs with a hint of reggae and punk, marking the beginnings of the band's sound as it is today. Jon Olazabal (percussionist), Matt Ochoa (drummer), David Foral (bassist) were added to the lineup not too long after the formation of the band.
The band's album Any Port in a Storm features appearances from Beatle's collaborator Billy Preston, Grammy nominated DJ Trippa Irie, and was mixed by Beastie Boy's producer Mario C. Perhaps on of the most successful reggae-influenced bands of their time, they have definitely become a touring sensation, producing shows to audiences across the world. Their overwhelmingly successful single, "Lay Me Down" peaked at number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and stayed for eleven weeks, giving the Dirty Heads an impressive new record.
Pepper is a rock band from Hawaii composed of three members: Kaleo Wassman (vocalist/guitarist), Bret Bollinger (vocalist/bassist), and Yesod Williams (drummer). The band was formed in 1996 and has released five studio albums since. Currently managed by the Velvet Hammer Music and Management Group, the band has appeared on popular tours such as the warped tour, and the Jägermeister Music Tour alongside artists like Snoop Dog and Slightly Stoopid.
AER is a rap/reggae/indie rock group based in Boston, Massachusetts. The two group members, David von Mering and Carter Schultz founded the band in 2010, and not soon after released their first two mixtapes. Their album The Bright Side, released in 2012, earned the number one spot on the iTunes Albums chart, and then made its way to Billboard’s Top 200. Music from their albums have appeared on MTV’s “The Real World,” NFL advertisements, and additional commercials.
