Excitement is climbing for Treehouse this spring.
One of the area’s fastest rising bands, a three-piece reggae rock outfit consisting vocalist Jeremy Anderson, bassist Matt Link and drummer Trey Moody, will set off the season Friday with a show at Ron Jon’s Beer and Burgers, 3218 Waccamaw Blvd., from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
The date is just one of many the band will play around town in the next few months during a stretch that will also include a concert on the big stage at House of Blues and the release of their first album.
Formerly known as Jeremy Anderson and Friends, this cover-band-turned-original-act is led by the 23-year-old Anderson, a multi-talented musician and songwriter who has spent time honing his craft in Nashville and across the Grand Strand.
After starting out playing tunes by Sublime, Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, and 311 the band made a conscious effort this winter to rebrand themselves and focus on making their own music.
Now, fresh out of studio sessions with local producer/audio engineer Jay Burgess at Myrtle Beach’s Ocean 10 studios the band is primed for the release its self-titled debut “Treehouse” in June.
Until then, the band will continue to focus on increasing an already-strong following locally and playing regular gigs as a house band for spots such as Pirate’s Cove, Harold’s on the Ocean, The Causeway, Bubba’s Love Shack, and Wahoo’s.
On April 22, the band will participate in one of its largest shows to date, Myrtle Beach Rocks! Reggae, with Simple Minded Budz, The Dubplates, and fellow local group, Jah Harvest at the House of Blues. In addition to showcasing talent, the event will help raise money in support of The United Way of Horry County.
“We are excited about Myrtle Beach Rocks!,” said Anderson. “We get to come together in a collaborative effort with other area bands to give back to the community and to help breathe life into the heartbeat of the Myrtle Beach music scene.”
