Supporting House of Shem will be up and coming wellington reggae band "Tomorrow People" & the massive sounds from “The Paepae Soundsystem”

Tomorrow People is a collaboration of musicians brought together by a love of reggae music. Formed and based in Wellington, the collective bring about a sound they like to call 'sunshine reggae'. It is a sound built around strong vocals, soothing harmonies, catchy hooks, aggressive ragga raps, and feel good riddims (rhythms). Together, the 8-piece band of mixed descent (Maori/Pacific Island) have decades of experience in the music industry, citing previous careers in hip-hop, R&B, gospel, funk and soul. 2010 sees the band record their debut album and hit the road to play shows nationwide. Predominantly marketing online has allowed the band to preview unreleased songs for their fan base, and they have had an overwhelming response to date. Their listenership picks up numbers by the day. Tomorrow People gather their musical influence from Jamaican and Hawaiian artists alike. Combined with their roots in NZ music, they bring a sound that is clean, laid-back and easy on the eardrums.
