The Movement
The Movement
Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, the reggae-rock group The Movement was formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans. Joshua Swain, Jordan Miller, and John Ruff, aka DJ Riggles, launched The Movement with their "alternative reggae" debut album, "On Your Feet." In 2008, the group met Chris DiBeneditto, a Philadelphia-based producer who had worked with like-minded acts such as Slightly Stoopid and G. Love & Special Sauce. Relocating to Philadelphia, they recorded 2008's "Set Sail" at DiBeneditto's Philadelphonic Studios. The album has sold over 10,000 copies to date. The Movement expanded with the addition of Gary Jackson on drums and Jason "Smiles" Schmidt on bass. In 2012, Miller left the group, and the trio, now fronted by Swain, released their fourth album "Side By Side," debuting at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Chart.

Bum Lucky
It takes just a few musicians and their instruments to start a reggae band. But to successfully bring that breezy island sound to a landlocked city such as Dallas, Texas requires something exceptional.

Bum Lucky was born out of the desire to cultivate a distinguished reggae music scene in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. Being located far from the beaches and pot-friendly atmospheres where the genre thrives forced the four-piece to dig deeper in its songwriting and sound — a welcome challenge that thrust the music new heights and enticed bands such as Fortune Youth and Tribal Seeds to play alongside Bum Lucky in their hometown.

The band’s latest EP, Show Some Love, is founded in roots-rock reggae and dub, and tinged with elements from southern rock and blues. The result is a collection of songs as gritty as they are seductive — the music embodies a rebellious spirit that serves as both a call to action and remedy on the dancefloor.

This fresh approach has rewarded Bum Lucky opportunities to share the stage with bands such as the Original Wailers, Lee Scratch Perry, Katchafire, Groundation, the Expendables, the Movement, Sensamotion, Mishka, Tribal Seeds and Fortunate Youth, among others. They’ve been guests at esteemed festivals throughout the Southwest while touring on a rigorous schedule the last several years to spread the gospel of good tunes.

The band plans to release a new single, called “Steven Avery,” in summer 2017 and follow up with a righteous North American tour you don’t want to miss. Hustle is the name of their game — one they expect to play all year long.
