Formed in the summer of 2013 by several veterans of the Sheffield music scene, Steel City Rhythm are an 8 piece outfit playing their own unique blend of up-tempo, politically conscious Reggae music. Mixing in heavy Dub breaks, blazing brass lines, Funk grooves and soaring vocals. Steel City Rhythm’s infectious sound gets people on their feet and moving.
Over the last year Steel City Rhythm have relea sed two acclaimed self-produced EP’s and have taken stages around the UK by storm with a trademark high-octane live show which is guaranteed to leave audiences sweaty and satisfied! Sharing the stage with top acts such as Rebelation, Hollie Cook and Dreadzone, as well as making high profile appearances at Tramlines, Boomtown Fair and a headline slot at Northern Green Gathering 2014 Steel City Rhythm have become one of the fastest growing favourites of the festival and party circuit.
