Any band that can begin a track with a shout of “where da party?!” and still create a credible song that has us singing (and even dancing) along has got to be worth three and a half minutes of your attention. At least.
Tempting Rosie are, without a doubt, one of the most vibrant and exciting live acts that Birmingham has to offer. The seven-man-band perform an infectiously enthusiastic infusion of reggae, ska, and rock that you’ll find it impossible not to fall head-over-heels for. And if that’s not enough for you, the band have also gained a fair amount of notoriety for their ‘Pressure Drop’ clubnights, featuring some of the liveliest music in town.
