Riders Against the Storm is one of Austin’s favorite bands. Known for their colorful blend of hip hop, dance, and soul, husband and wife team Chaka and Qi Dada have a proven combination on their hands, winning Band of the Year at the Austin Music Awards three years in a row.
For a taste of why we love them so much, don’t miss Riders Against the Storm’s third annual RAS Day Festival, a family-focused event that seeks to cultivate community and unity through music, food, and fun group activities, on August 27th at Kenny Dorham’s Backyard.
Austin.com is and always has been a site that celebrates and promotes the unique people and places of Austin, TX and surrounding cities. Though many businesses, locations, and events are closed at this time, we continue to highlight those things so that you can plan to experience them in the future.
Meanwhile, the group is also preparing a new record, ‘Cornerstone,’ after a successful Indiegogo campaign raised over $7,000 dollars for production costs.
Even though the campaign is over, if you donate $20-$80 dollars to the band on Indiegogo, you will receive either two or four early-bird tickets to RAS Day.
RAS Day is a wonderful way to support and give back to your local community, so come on out and have some fun!
