Music, City Picks


When: Tue., Aug. 28 2012

If you want your reggae with a heaping helping of aloha, look no further than Pepper. Since forming in 1997, these Big Island surfer dudes — singer and bassist Bret Bollinger, singer and guitar player Kaleo Wassman, and drummer Yesod Williams — have made a career out of adding a little Hawaiian flavor to traditional reggae music. (The late, great uke player and singer Israel Kamakawiwoole is one of the band's inspirations.) This Tuesday, Pepper will perform at the Music Farm as part of a 12-city tour of the East Coast promoting their 2011 release Sitches. With more than half a million records sold and their own record label, LAW Records, Pepper's music has been featured in several movies, like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Good Luck Chuck.
