The Band are based in Leicester and happy to travel for events.
Founded by passionate like-minded musicians, Rice 'n' Peas have caught the attention of Reggae lovers across the country and have also picked up industry interest along the way. Through a shared love of Rock-Steady Reggae and Rhythm & Blues, the band formed with a vision to create an authentic sound, keeping the dance floor full from start to finish.
They are not your ordinary Reggae band, they transform songs from a range of genres into feel-good Reggae jams, audiences find themselves appreciating the well known songs in a fresh, uplifting way. Rice n Peas have transformed songs from the likes of Michael Jackson, Alicia Keys, The Temptations, George Benson to Rihanna; pleasing a varied range of age, style and taste. An overview of the setlist looks almost bizarre when looking at the range of artists and genres however, it all makes sense when you hear it.
They are made up of experienced musicians from different walks of life, bringing a range of stories and inspiration together, creating the perfect recipe for a memorable party. Rice n Peas have stood in spotlights and taken the stage of many festivals, weddings, corporate events and Rum'n'Reggae nights; nothing too small or large for the band.
