The Push started of as a four piece Roots/ Rock reggae band which comprised of a hard hitting lead guitar coupled with a pulsating five string bass, roots reggae drumming style sped up just a tad to bring out the rhythm guitar that resonates and cuts through a room with precision. Keyboard player and Backing vocalist soon followed. The Push has been playing in venues in and around Melbourne such as Kelly’s Bar in Olinda, Scarab bar in Belgrave, Bar Up in Prahran and even private functions since October of 2012. Still at a stage of development, The Push’s sole motivation is to help people reflect on life and the spiritual wonders of the world through reggae music. There are happy songs and there are very sad songs. Conscious lyrics are constantly flowing via the lead vocals of Darrel Belle aka Belly. Having that said, we love to have fun too. There is one thing that underpins The Push’s core values and that is one of the constant driving forces of the band. We are the meaning of multicultural. We have Seychellois, Mauritian, English, Anglo Indian and Armenian. Most of the members have been close friends for over 7 years so recording one of our original tracks ‘Dancing’ was a real shot of adrenaline for the young band. Levels of experience vary through out the band. Belly (lead vocalists/rhythm guitarist) has been playing live music in Melbourne for well over ten years featuring in many festivals such as Globe to Globe music festival, Sydney Road festival, Brimbank Festival, Yarra Junction Festival, La Faya at federation square and many more. Alongside him was the ever so funky sounds of Bass man Giovani Antonio. Daniel Gabriel entered the band after just arrived in Australia from the Seychelles. Bass, lead guitar, rhythm guitar and keyboard are all a part of his armory of reggae arsenal served up with a hint of creole flavor. Courtney Fernandez provides powerful backing vocals for The Push and drums are played by Chris Robinson. To top it all of we have the sounds of Artur Kumruyan on lead guitar giving our reggae that edge. Our goal right now is to keep playing gigs to fund recordings in order to play festivals and spread the reggae ragga muffin rubba dub to everyone. Bless
