Tidal Jive / Press

“It occurred to me on the way home that these guys had inadvertently created the perfect alchemy of collaboration and effort to produce perfection. Each of them plays, because they must. It is what they love to do, and they are very good at it. There was no creative ego at play; there was no posturing for attention of limelight...If music soothes the savage beast, play on, brothers; play on.”

“By the end of the TWENTY MINUTE cover of “Use Me”, the three original members of Tidal Jive has swelled to twelve, the stage was groaning with the weight of the musical genius and the energy was palpable. It was amazing.”

“Tidal Jive’s “Making Love (To My Guitar)” was inspired. Don't get me wrong; Tidal Jive is no joke. Justin can slap a bass like no other, and Spodie's riffs were staggering. If you were there, you were transported; if you were not, you missed out. (Your loss. Don’t miss the next show.”

“The Tidal Jive & Friends jam set went on, as musicians jumped in and out, as the spirit moved them, for almost two hours. There were less than twenty people in the crowd, but closing your eyes, you’d have been convinced these guys were playing to a crowd of 20,000”

“The debut disc offered a warm mix of vintage soul-rock, '70s funk, acoustic folk-rock, reggae, and a blend of Latin influences, including samba, calypso, and Cuban.”

“A Promising Artist ”

“Hi Tidal Jive,,,,I am grooving of of your song "Groovin" ..how appropriate,,,,,this song is really driving and I like the vocals here.The phrasing of the singer actually acts as an additional instrument punctuating the rhytmnic drive of this song”

“They’ve got the coastal and funk references in the band name. They’ve got the support of one of the scene’s most versatile professional musicians. They’ve got a massive list of groove-based original tunes and covers. They’re set to make a splash. Led by singer/guitarist/percussionist Robert Alvarez and percussionist/singer/guitarist Adam Gasque, local groove-rock act Tidal Jive is eager to please their ever-expanding audience. Alvarez and Gasque recently recorded a collection of their own tunes with engineers Eric Rickert and Jeff Leonard at Ocean Industries on James Island. They’ve enlisted a rotation of guest players for local performances, including multi-instrumentalist Bobby Alvarez (of Plane Jane) and members of Big Hit & The Baby Kit and Sara Smile. Check them out every Tuesday evening upstairs at Henry’s in the Market. —T. Ballard Lesemann”

“We dig hearing your songs in IMRadio's radio rotation!”

“I’m playing and really enjoying your music. "Low Key " is a great song of yours and I became your fan.”
