The Steadies’ frontman Earl Pereira got his rock n’ roll pedigree as a founding member of the highly successful Canadian band Wide Mouth Mason, who had three gold records, three Juno nominations, and a host of other accolades and awards. Pereira has toured the world, playing over 3000 shows and opening for iconic artists like The Rolling Stones, Alanis Morissette, AC/DC, and Nelly Furtado. He was named one of Canada’s top bass players by Canadian Music Magazine and has been featured on MTV, Muchmusic, and the Ryan Seacrest Show, as well as in publications like Rolling Stone Magazine and The National Post. The Steadies’ established line up also includes Trinidadian guitar prodigy, Justin 'Juice' Lee, Barbados born keyboardist Sauvelm McClean, and talk show host / drummer Jason Hattie.
The Steadies take the explosively popular Top 40 sound and mix it with rocksteady and reggae influences, creating what they’ve dubbed, “island rock.” No matter your mood, The Steadies pick you up and carry you to the beach in your mind, the club in your dreams, the place you go to clear your head and dance. It’s a scene where rumbling fault lines rip open the dance floor, and the only thing that keeps you from falling over is the gravitational pull of the steady beat. The Steadies aren’t invited to the party --- they are the party.
Hitting the ground running with the momentum that Mobadass has built over the last five years, demand for The Steadies is already high, with over 100 shows played in for 2011 and more on the way for 2012. The Steadies have played with talent such as Grammy Award winning Arrested Development, Bedouin Soundclash, Los Lobos, Sharon Jones _ The Dap Kings, Blue Rodeo, Sloan, K-OS, and many more. They were showcased at the 2010 Winter Olympics and The Grey Cup and have headlined countless festivals across Canada.
The Steadies will released their brand new EP on September 23rd 2011, and are working on their full-length album coming in 2012.
