Performer Info

Pepper: While reggae-influenced rock band Pepper may be from Hawaii, they've found huge success on tour dates throughout the continental US, especially on the West Coast. Pepper's unique ska sound has appealed to rock, ska, reggae, and pop fans, and the musical diversity has led to Top 100 albums like 2006's No Shame. While they haven't released a full-length album in three years, Pepper is keeping fans entertained with popular live performances, including US tour dates in 2011.

Childhood friends Kaleo Wasserman (lead guitar, vocals) and Bret Bollinger (bass) formed Pepper in 1996 and, after meeting drummer Yesod Williams, began to make a name for themselves locally. A year or so later, Pepper headed to Southern California and began opening tour dates for big name reggae acts like Shaggy and The Expendables. While their debut album, Give'n It went somewhat unnoticed, their third album, In With the Old was well received and placed in the Top 20 of the independent albums charts. Pepper's biggest hit came in 2006 with the release of No Shame, which featured the hit single "No Control."

Pepper's latest album, Pink Crustaceans and Good Vibrations, has further evolved the band's already popular sound, and became their first album to break into the Billboard 200 at #83. Pepper can be found on the Warped Tour until August 12, after which they'll head out on 2011 US tour dates until October 8. Pepper also has two shows in Hawaii in November, so check out Pepper's full tour to avoid missing out.

Grieves: GRIEVES

Grieves was born and raised in North Chicago, Illinois. At a very young age, his father Leon brought him to all of the famous Chicago Blues clubs. The experience of soul and blues was highly influential and has become the base for Grieves music today. Moving to Fort Collins, Colorado, he immersed himself in hip hop. He began to battle and record and followed his path to Seattle, WA.

Living and breathing music, writing and recording every chance he gets, hes released 2 EPs on the now defunct label 7Hill Records. The latest, Every Hell Has its Springtime has sold out.

Touring constantly, he takes his partners Type & Murderdice with him and together they go by the name Illegitimate Children. Planning to release records with Illegitimate Children as well as his solo work, Grieves is making his mark on Hip Hop scenes across the country.

Though he make look like a child, hes been at it for over 5 years. At the age of 22, he produces all of his own beats, writes all of his music, manages his booking, touring and promotions and is probably kissing your sister right now.-Lisa Wood

Grieves has opened for Himself(nether worlds) One Block Radius, A. Kruse, Macklemore, Gabriel Teodros, Lewis Logic, onry oseborn, bar fly, cancer rising, Sambusa, Until We Wake and many others. grieves would also like to let you know the truth about noc on wood records. you can contact him about that.
