Orange River Remedy

Orange River Remedy are a four-piece band based in Stratford-on-Avon that write, record, and perform music often steeped in 60s and 70s reminiscence, bringing powerful riffs, four-part harmonies and psychedelia into a wonderful modern, post pandemic era. The band members are all hugely talented at their craft, drawing on an extensive range of musical experience, influences, and styles, unusual for what is essentially a young band, paying homage to the likes of Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, The Beatles, Elvis, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Doors.
