Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. From these humble beginnings, this classic roots band has now been billed alongside those who they originally set out to emulate, such as The Wailers, UB40 and Lauryn Hill. They have toured all over Europe, the United States, Brazil and Australia and are a regular venue in most cities and towns around New Zealand through the summer months. The only advice we can give you is that you should catch them if you can. Celebrating their 25th birthday in , the Dubbies have been on the circuit for a good long while now. This has seen them evolve into one of the most unique and, in a way, distinctly Kiwi-sounding bands ever to raise their heads out of the Aotearoa grass. Whilst some of their music can stray into the darker dub side of things the message is always hopeful. The Black Seeds are one of the bands on this list that is an absolute joy to see play live. They formed in Wellington in and play with eight band members, which gives them live performances and an electrifying vibe. The whole idea of getting together a bunch of talented and like-minded musicians arose in when Barnaby Weir front-man of the Black Seeds and Mikee Tucker from Loop decided what the world needed was a selection of the most exciting local musicians combining their power to produce scintillating shows set to captivating visual backdrops.

Artists Of The Moment: Reggae/Dub
New Zealand reggae is the New Zealand variation of the musical genre reggae. It is a large and well established part of New Zealand music , and includes some of the country's most successful and highly acclaimed bands. The Bob Marley concert at Western Springs Stadium is credited with having a huge influence of the growth of reggae in the country and inspiring many prominent reggae artists. Reggae topped the charts in New Zealand in the early s when Toots and the Maytals , the first artist to use the term "reggae" in song, went platinum with their song "Beautiful Woman". The reggae scene is centred around the Waikato , Whanganui and the capital Wellington , with capital music having a more dub and jazz influenced sound. Most New Zealand reggae bands incorporate different stylistic influences, and the result is a unique combination of sounds. The scene is not without its detractors and is referred to derisively as "BBQ reggae". Sometimes this criticism is levelled at New Zealand reggae in particular, in contrast to other strains of reggae music. The most successful of recent acts is Fat Freddy's Drop , who incorporate jazz, soul and dub influences and reflect the Wellington sound.
I grew up in a very strict Mormon home and dated only Mormon men until I met my now husband. I have had more than one girl, who I had definite chemsitry with, who the girl really liked me and we had deep and intense conversations as well as a real physichal connection to. One red flag I have for Mormon girls is if they drink coffee.
