With an eclectic fusion of Reggae that effortlessly mixes with their Rock roots, Melbourne based King River Rising blends deep groove with alluring harmony. Often compared to artists such as Sublime, John Mayor and Groundation, King River Rising draw from many of the player’s deep roots in Blues and Rock; while putting their own spin on front man Ward Hancock’s love of Rocksteady and Dub. After gigging their latest release titled “Lucid” relentlessly for the past seven months, 2017 has seen them cruise down to the Mornington Peninsula supporting Queensland’s top Reggae acts, play hot gigs and drinking cold beers at upper-class wineries in country Victoria and take tireless trips to Sydney and the Blue Mountains. Joining the bill are DOKO, a band formed by five uni students who looked to escape the rigidity of study and the mundane state of Sydney’s post-lock-out-law night life.

What started as a weekly jam turned into something which began to resemble a band. Soon the songs took shape and before they knew it they had a killer set. “Bloody hell, guess we better get some gigs”.
