Reef were formed back in 1993 and quickly went on to release four studio albums after signing with Sony imprint S2. Originating from Somerset, these legendary rockers are back with UK tour dates as well as promises of a new studio album!
Having emerged back on the scene earlier in 2016 (March), Reef brought with them their cover version of the famous “How I Got Over” by music sensation Aretha Franklin. The gospel hymn is revitalised and uplifting as Reef brings their own kind of magic to the song, making it for easy listening – especially during these winter days.
With many changes in the group over the years, the band now consists of Gary Stringer (vocals), Jack Bessant (bass), Jesse Wood (lead guitar) and Dominic Greensmith (drums).
The group disbanded in 2003 before reuniting in 2010 for a short tour. Seeing their tour sell out almost instantly was enough to give the members the motivation needed to keep going as a band and since then have been gracing the music world with tours annually. With that in mind, the band is also getting ready for a UK tour which will see them play nearby at the Portsmouth Pyramids, Portsmouth. The rest of their tour dates can be found below.
November 30th – Komedia, Bath
December 8th – Assembly, Leamington Spa
December 9th – Central Station, Wrexham
December 10th – O2 Academy, Leicester
December 15th – Portsmouth Pyramids, Portsmouth
