Riptide has been a 3 piece since 7th or 8th grade. They've always had a love of reggae, ska, punk, rock, hip-hop, blues, you name it they've tried it. Sophomore year of high school they chose to be labeled "Riptide" as they're influence and love of street reggae grew. Starting slow and really having no idea how to start, they started playing around at different venues. Slow but steady wins the race. With they're love of shows, and just being on stage, Riptide is definitely a great vibe type of band to hear and dance to and with their punk, you won't want to stand still.
