8/28/14 - Save the Date! Heritage Square Summer Concerts Present Dirty Rice Reggae -- 8/29
> VIEW   
> HIDE  
Dirty Rice is a 7-piece reggae band based in South Oxnard, California. The soulful sound of Dirty Rice is a mix of roots, rock, reggae and hints of ragga combined with never-ending drum grooves, acoustic guitar, wholesome keys, soothing vocal harmonies and rocking bass riffs. Dirty Rice is comprised of a group of local friends and a mix of family - Pika Maiava (drums), Mataio Valoaga (bass), Charleen Morla (keyboards), Mau Valoaga (Guitar) and combining the heavenly blends on the mics are vocals – Shirley Moore, Henry Otineru and Nasau Galeai.
Dirty Rice formed in March of 2010 initially to play at a “one time only gig” for a birthday party of two of their band members. With such positive response from the crowd of family and friends, they decided to continue rehearsing and began performing at local venues throughout the 805. Dirty Rice was soon capturing the crowds with their unique and intriguing sound by performing known reggae covers to their very own “feel good” originals. Since then, Dirty Rice has had the honor and privilege of backing headline acts including reggae legends from Pato Banton and Don Carlos to more current acts such as Lion, Rey Fresco, Jboog, Iration among other groups.
