“Hailing from Virginia Beach, VA, is the 5-man ensemble, Bimini Rd, which is currently bringing some fresh life and energy to the mid-Atlantic reggae circuit. Having toured with some of the biggest American reggae groups over the past 3+ years - bands such as The Green, Rebelution, Fortunate Youth, Tribal Seeds and John Brown's Body, to name a few - Bimini Rd just this past March released it's self-titled LP, which is now available on iTunes & Amazon. As far as sound goes, Bimini Rd has a notable rock influence in many of their tracks, with hints of many of the great aforementioned bands sprinkled in here and there. The group is geared up and stoked on this upcoming summer; with lots of shows already in the books, they're poised to take the East Coast by storm.”
“Although they are just finding their mold in the music industry, they are already making ground. After a lot of work and commitment, Bimini Rd. is putting themselves on the map.”
“The third song on the album is “San Juan” – another of the band’s popular tracks. The ladies in our group were huge fans of this song. Raspy vocals with a bluesy dub vibe gets the girlies every time. The dudes were pretty impressed too. A good way to describe this track would be The Black Keys meets 311 – and Pink Floyd stops by for a drink. In fact, that may be a good way to describe the band itself if it weren’t for the amount of other influences heard throughout this album – and their own uniqueness.”
“If blues or ambient noise rock aren’t your thing, check out Virginia Beach’s Bimini Rd. performing their reggae tinged rock originals at Chicho’s 29th Street. They’ve spent the last year playing both locally and regionally in support of their debut album, Walkabouts, which they released a year ago,”
“The first word that comes to mind when you see Bimini Rd. live is ENERGY. Front man Mike Fischetti radiated it as he delivered powerful vocals, as did guitarists Travis and Aaron, who were somehow able to jump around the stage and incite the audience while playing complex numbers”
"The original songs that these guys have written are very funky and have a unique vibe to them."
"Some people believe that Bimini Road is an underwater route to Atlantis, but in Virginia Beach, Bimini Rd. is a four-piece alternative rock band."
