The Pier community supports the ever-growing Reggae-rock scene blowing up in the USA and around the world today. From artist interviews to album and concert reviews, The Pier has been embraced as the official home to the scene with the most reliable and quality content, spotlighting all of your favorite artists and groups in the Reggae-Rock genre.

The Pier was formed on Aug 15th 2007 as a daily news blog with interviews, album reviews and FREE music focusing on the Reggae-Rock genre. Our FREE music extends to our MP3 Leak of the Week every Sunday as well as our dedicated FREE music section with our MP3 Massive. In addition, fans can also view all of their favorite bands inside our built-in Show Locator as well as our weekend Show Locator article that’s posted on our homepage every Friday.
