Tidal Jive

Tidal Jive

Charleston, South Carolina’s Tidal Jive features a unique brand of funky groove that could best be described as the offspring of Jack Johnson, Mick Jagger, and James Brown. Since forming as an acoustic duo in 2008, they have evolved into a four-piece funk powerhouse often featuring horns and salsa inspired percussion. In 2010, after establishing themselves as regulars on the Charleston/Myrtle Beach/Murrell’s Inlet music scene, Tidal Jive released their first official EP, “To Want To Be Free Is To Start To Be.” The new album was a watershed event for Tidal Jive. Soon after, they were placed at #3 on the local alterative charts for reverbnation.com, and given a distribution deal with 9 Lives Records. They received a featured spot on imradio.com’s “Featured Artists” page, a showcase in local radio station The Bridge’s “Homegrown Music Series,” and a spot opening for legendary reggae band The Wailers at acclaimed music venue The Rave in Milwaukee, WI.
