Easy Star All-Stars Coming To Montana

Easy Star All-Stars are a New York reggae collective that has made a name for itself creating reggae covers of whole albums. The group chooses albums like Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and recreates them as “Dub Side of the Moon” and “Thrillah.”
The Easy Stars have also covered The Beatles' “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band” calling it “Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band,” and Radiohead’s “OK Computer” as “Radiodread.”
The group first chose “Dark Side of the Moon” to cover as an experiment, and their curiosity yielded the first of many cover albums.
This will be the group’s first time playing in Montana.
“It will be invigorating to play in and around the mountain states, since we love experiencing the beauty of nature while on tour to contrast with how much time we spend at the shows and on the bus,” vocalist Kirsty Rock said.
The group is playing at the Top Hat this Wednesday, April 27. Their stop in Missoula is part of Easy Star’s Dub Side of the Moon tour on which they will primarily play from their Pink Floyd cover.
Despite the band losing and gaining members over the years, the group is very tightly knit.
“It is a core of players, and we kind of have a language, and we’re kind of like a big family,” Ivan Katz, a drummer for the group, said.
Katz has been a band member for 13 years and playing drums since he was a teenager. He is inspired by reggae drummers and looks up to musicians like Bob Marley, Prince and Stevie Wonder.
“I am in shock over the news of Prince’s passing,” Katz said. “When we lose somebody great, I know that artists have to play even stronger. You keep the music playing.”
Katz cited Prince’s stage presence and influence as a huge inspiration.
“Prince just brought this energy and this message that you can’t even describe, and his legacy manifests through practically everybody on the music scene today,” Katz said.
Opening for the Easy Stars is Colorado reggae band Tatanka. Doors for the April 27 show open at 8:30 p.m., and the show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15-$18, and the show is 18 and over.
