Easy Stride Band takes influences from reggae, soul and breakbeat to create uplifting and energetic music that delivers positivity and provokes a party! Formed in 2015, Easy Stride Band utilises a deft fusion of soul and reggae to create upbeat, feel-good music, combining live vocal and guitar loops with deep bass and head-nodding beats. This easy-going yet infectious rhythmic sound sets the scene for dancing, smiling and party vibes. Fun, fresh and fantastic!
Easy Stride Band's catchy and vibrant sound comes from the minds of Joe Fleming, Noah Burton and Benny Brooke. Joe uses a loop station to layer guitars and vocals in real-time to form complex soundscapes, backed by Noah on production and live drums while Benny lays down the big bass, forming a unique blend of melody and groove that is immediately captivating. The addition of live brass takes the show up a level, with trombone and trumpet soaring on top of the band’s full sound. This uplifting group scream positivity and celebration, a sentiment which is echoed through the band's performance style; their enthusiasm for the music shines through in their live shows and has engrossed audiences across UK venues and festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Bestival, Boomtown and Wilderness.
