The Polynesian Underground entertainment collaboration describes themselves as "a community of people who believe in the power of 'Ohana,' the joys and good vibrations of friendship and the concept of 'One Love,' based on the spirit of 'Aloha!'" If ever there was a mission statement that we could get behind, it's that one. This week at Detroit Bar, Polynesian Underground brings those good vibrations in the musical forms of The Steppas, Rian Basillio and the Roosters, and Ezzrah. The Steppas, a reggae trio from Hawaii, this night's headliners, are still enjoying the acclaim from 2013 sophomore effort The Love Shack, which debuted on reggae charts across the board. Don't miss this show filled with easy-going, upbeat island reggae—and then pick up The Steppas' first full-length album, due early next year.
