Born over a weekend at Boomtown Festival, with the humble goal of getting a band together to sack off the litter picking shifts and enjoy a festival in style. Rogue Siesta are a Sheffield based group of musical friends who’ve pooled their combined reggae, indie, punk and ska influences, resulting in a uniquely genre bending, high energy, rollercoaster ride through the world of reggae. Major milestones for the band include finally getting booked for Boomtown Festival, playing the main stage at Tramlines Fringe to over 1000 people for two years running, or supporting the legendary Neville Staple, formerly of The Specials, at the Leamington Assembly. Other support slots include The Undercover Hippy, Treehouse Fire and New Zealand’s Katchafire on the Sheffield Leg of their 20th Anniversary world tour. Rogue Siesta’s second EP ‘From The Canopy’ was celebrated with plays on BBC Introducing, gigs around the country and finishing with a sold out hometown show at Hagglers Corner. After a quick and productive stretch in the studio between lockdowns, the band are releasing new material, including single ‘Rich Man’ which came out in 2021.
