Been a long time…

Hello there! Its been quite a while since we posted. We have had to take some time off at the beginning of the year and most of the summer we have been working on new tracks. So we haven’t had much to say, until now!

We have added a couple of new members to beef up the sound. Joining us again, on Lead Guitar, is Robert Capewell who featured on our Gotta Move On EP! A really good friend of most of the band, its almost like he didn’t stop 3 years ago! Also joining us on Keys, is Mr Jez Gray. Stolen from a local Afro-Beat act called Fellowship of Groove, he has added all the bubble we could of asked for.

With them all rehearsed up, and with some new songs, we are now getting ready to jump into the studio to record our Debut Album! We are working with some exciting dudes on the production side of things and we cant wait to get it out to you. More info on this in the new year!

As for gigs, we have one more show of the year, Friday, 16th December, Quay Arts. We hope you can make it! Get your tickets here, http://www.quayarts.org/event/bus-shelter-fundraiser/

We hope you have a great Christmas and New Years, We will see you soon!

Peace, Love & Tea

Festival season 2015 has been very good to us and it wouldn’t of been the same without all you lot!

As you all know we had some new members this year, Oli Morris & Ross Moore. If you didn’t get chance to see us through the summer, anyone that did can tell you that they have settled in very well and are smashing the stage with us with a complete rework of all the brass. Something that for me is a very important part of The Ohmz.

Isle of Wight Festival

So its nearly here, Isle of Wight festival! It doesn’t feel like its been a year since we stepped onto the fields of Seaclose Park and a lot has changed with us in that year.

We don’t want you to miss what we’ve been working on and we’re happy to announce our set times for both the Kashmir Cafe & the Boheman Woods.

Saturday night we will be smashing the Kashmir Cafe from 10pm with our friends Bigtopp after and local legends Born ina Barn! As always, Kashmir is the place to be on the Saturday.

But if we clash with another act that night, don’t you worry. 9pm Sunday afternoon we will be playing at the Bohemian Woods stage. The headliner of the day is Bestival band competition winners from earlier this year, YRSLF! be sure to check them out!

Hope to see you all there and if you can’t make it to this years Isle of Wight festival, we hope to see you in a field soon!

Peace, Love & Tea

Horn n’ Ting

Hello there! We’ve been pretty quiet recently and there is a reason why.

So 6 weeks ago (doesn’t seem that long already) we had to say farewell to our Leo. It was a time that was hard for all of us at The Ohmz and we knew that finding some sort of a replacement was going to be a challenge.

Today is the day that we announce that our challenge has been completed. It’s been tough but here it is…

On saxophone…We welcome…

Oli Morris! Fresh from a tour in Amsterdam with the local music college, Platform One, he is going to be joining us on stage, blasting his jazzy sax vibes for your ears to enjoy. He has also just released an EP check it out here
https://olimorrismusic.bandcamp.com/album/a-modern-approach

BUT WAIT! That’s not all!

I said that replacing Leo was going to be a challenge, so we are also announcing another new member!

Joining Bob and Oli, as a phatter brass section…

On Trombone…. Please welcome….

Ross Moore! After spending some time playing with countless reggae bands around the country including The Popes of Chilitown (check out their new single here https://youtu.be/ZRIfc8q5c3s), Ross has already brought so much to our sound, and you lot are going to love it! He has ripped apart the brass already, laid it all out and put it back together to make this 3 part brass section as good as we can. And it’s still early days.

To welcome them properly we are heading up country to play a few gigs and 1st stop is one of the favs for last summers tour with Bigtopp, The Noel’s Arm, Melton Mowbray. But do not fear! We are back home playing a show in one week for a Battle Of The Bands at The 1st Floor, Newport. So come down and give them your support!

As for now, why not enjoy this clip of our new brass section playing Outside

 

Peace, love n tea x

Hello Festivals!

Yesterday we had some sad news, but today’s news is much better!

This year we have some new festivals to play, and we are EXTREMELY excited about them, and some old favourites too.

Ladies and Gentleman, we are very happy to be able to tell you that we are playing at this year’s –

BOOMTOWN!

Thats right, the biggest Reggae/Ska festival in the UK are going to have some “Ohmz grown reggae” (see what I did there?) straight from the Isle of Wight. We’ve been wanting this one for quite a while now and what a year to be asked along?! Stephen Marley, Katchafire, Soja – oh and of course our good friends Bigtopp are just a few acts that are on the lineup.

One Love!

This is another festival that we’ve been eyeing-up, waiting for the chance to spread our message of positivity to the crowds. This festival of Reggae is the perfect place. Little Roy & Macca B will both be playing this one. Can’t wait!

Isle of Wight Festival!

It’s a local one, and a lively one, and we’re happy to be playing it again this year.

 

Thats it…. for now! We will keep you all updated as soon as we’re confirmed for any others. Hope to see you on a field during the summer!

 

Peace, Love & Tea
