"Giving Reggae music a new dimension"
De Gringo's play "Punky Reggae", according to their own description. Combining it with influences from Ska, Punk and Pop they recorded their first album called: "Where to Go?". The answer is in the question and so they are full of energy to keep on trying to stretch their music further. It's raw,pure and with a message !
In this video;
All three Giggs the band gave during Eurosonic festival worked out well. They started on Wednesday in a shoppin window of a interior store next the Club Vera in Groningen. Behind the window the band created their own atmosphere with help of some good friends helping out decorating.The second one was a official show for Grunnsonic part of the Eurosonic/Noorderslag Festival. Thursday they played at GrunnSonic part of Eurosonic/Noorderslag Festival.Friday they did the wildest show of the three. They played outside in Groningen on Bakbrommers! In Dutch. Three wheeled mopeds. First they were stopped by the police but with a little hussling they could drive on to a location in the city.Dispite of the rain that was pouring down, friends helped out with umbrellas to keep everything a bit dry. but the keyboard broke down.The whole action went very well and they did another show at a new spot after that witch was also great.
Check out De Gringo's if your around !
