Don’t push it, it’ll go bad.
86 the Effort was formed in 2007 over beers and open mics in Baltimore, MD by a young group of gentlemen who share a common interest in having fun, working hard, and helping others to forget about life’s problems. “Totally Redeem Yourself” is the band’s third studio release, coming in July of 2014, and the first since adding Justin Armstrong on lead guitar, keys and vocals.
Borrowing elements of reggae mixed with the driving beat of new alternative, 86 is expanding on their uplifting sound with modern indie rock elements and soaring arrangements fit for today’s radio.
86 the Effort is proud to have shared the stage with such acts as The Dirty Heads, Rome of Sublime with Rome, SOJA, Easy Star All Stars, Passafire, Ballyhoo, Jimmy’s Chicken Shack, and a long list of the regions best local performers.
