Dead Fools Fiesta

Bio

Dead Fools Fiesta is a highly powerful, bass thumping, dub-rock quartet with a huge live presence. Hailing from the Waitakere ranges in Aotearoa (New Zealand) this 4 piece band promises to deliver explosive soul touching rhythms combined with ecliptic harmonies and an overall energetic performance.


The four childhood friends began making music together in late 2005 based on a shared interest in reggae rhythms and a pure love for music and art. The friends played their first gigs under the name The 4 Mexicanos which burst onto the Auckland Ska scene in early 2006. Over the next two years the band spent countless hours refining their original sounds and playing as many shows as possible up and down the north island playing with the like of House of Shem, Tahuna Breaks, Unity Pacific and The Managers.

2008 saw the release of their debut self titled EP under their former name, The 4 Mexicanos. This release helped cement the band as an integral part of the Auckland Ska/Reggae scene.

With the success of their first E.P in the Auckland Ska/Reggae scene the band set their sights on recording a full length studio album. During the last few months of 2009, Dead Fools Fiesta entered York St. Studios to begin work on their first full length album.

Dead Fools Fiestas debut self titled album was release on the 19th April 2010. The band played their release show on the 17th of April to a crowd of over 350 people at Galatos bar in Auckland. Following the album’s release the band featured on the I.A.N live sessions with Fleur Jack on Kiwi FM. The band also featured on BFM’s Fancy New Band segment with Mikey Havoc on the breakfast show as well as interviews with DJ Dubhead of BFM. Dead Fools Fiesta featured in the backstage pass write up on Amplifier.co.nz. With the album selling over 200 copies within the first week of release Dead Fools Fiesta shows no signs of slowing down.
