The name REO means voice or language which is a nod to the diverse backgrounds of the 8 members in this Dunedin based band.

The band members are Cook Island, European, Maori and Samoan and REO play a wide range of songs in the genre of reggae, rock, pop and old school.

In their short career so far they have won the Dunedin regional battle of the bands competition and have most recently supported ‘Katchafire’ during their tour of the South Island.

Famous for their tireless sets where they effortlessly roll from song to song, once the dancing starts they keep the crowds it’s hard to stop.

REO's Journey has just only begun and they are aiming for the moon, so that at least if they don’t get there, they will be among the stars.
