Hometown: Honolulu, HI
Local Uprising is an independent band who work hard to make an impact on reggae in their own unique way. Appropriate to the "local" in their name, the band holds dear their value of community and bringing people together through music. Understandably, the band itself exists in the same fashion—its members all bring different genres of music to the group. Local Uprising's latest album Our Welcome To The World
is more than a year in the making and drops August 8, 2013. Leading up to and following the band's record release, catch a Local Uprising show for yourself. Contrary to the norm for many bands, Local Uprising shows are not merely performances of their recordings. The band frequently has tricks up their sleeve which make it well worth your time to soak in a Local Uprising show for yourself.
