The I-Drenz is a 6-piece sound system that seamlessly blends styles from many different genres of music, while still having their roots firmly planted in Reggae music, thanks to the authentic Jamaican voice and style of Kingston’s own, Andre Prehay. His authentic delivery, originality, and cadence, is what sets The I-Drenz apart from all other regional Reggae acts.
The I-Drenz were humbled by our invitation to open up the festivities at the 2013 Austin Reggae Festival and to perform at the 2013 and 2014 Bricktown Reggae Festival in Oklahoma City. The I-Drenz have also perfomed with popular 80's Ska act The English Beat earlier in 2013 and are slated for the 2013 Dallas Reggae Festival.
The I-Drenz eclectic Reggae sound represents a mix of rock and skanky guitar riffs, dub style effects, Latin rhythms, and jazz progressions, along with smooth vocal harmonies, and they have only scratched the surface of this genre of music.
In the short time The I-Drenz have been performing, they have warranted enough acclaim to open up for some of the nation’s largest Reggae festivals (Austin Reggae Festival 2013) and share major stages with many prolific Reggae artists and bands, such as The Wailers, The English Beat, and Ancestree, just to name a few.
The I-Drenz have earned a reputation for their nonstop energetic live performances that always leave the audience asking for more. Their remarkable repertoire is full of original energetic dancehall tracks such as Party So Well and Educations Needed. In addition to, traditional Reggae/Dub compositions like Life and Dangerous for the true Reggae fans at heart. The I-Drenz touch on powerful subjects in their music, such as love and relationships with songs like Her Wish, Whole Heapa Love, and Order for You, to political topics professing legalization in songs like Sacred Plant.
