"Nothing can soothe the soul better than the ska & reggae beats and sounds from a distant island. Okay, so Idlers aren't actually from Jamaica, but they are from the Rock, and that's even better. They have brought home numerous awards and accolades from across the country but, to give you a sense of just how completely wonderful they really are, for four years running they've been voted the Best Band to Dance To on St. John's famed George St. With bragging rights like that, who needs a Grammy? They'll bring joy to your feet, so don't miss them."
– Gerry Hawes, Mariposa Folk Festival
Idlers are full tilt-energy. Their caravan of dance, reggae and world music travels wherever music takes them, playing original, conscious sounds for moving, thinking and loving.
