St. Maarten Heineken Regatta - Since releasing their latest album, Fingerprint, all sails have been hoisted on the Orange Grove ship and the band has been steadily making its way to new frontiers.

The 2009 album received remarkable reviews from many popular Dutch media outlets like OOR, Marie Claire, Veronica Magazine, Latin Music Net, Avant Garde, just to name a few. The album's first single 'You Decide It' received airplay on a number of commercial and regional radio stations in the country and even reached as high as #5 on the Radio Rijnmond Top 40.

Their latest single 'Feel That Fire' has recently been added to Tempo's playlist (the MTV of the Caribbean) and they plan on releasing three brand new videos between now and the Summer of 2011...after that they will be moving on to the next album which their fans all around the globe have been eagerly anticipating!

Recently, having signed to a new management team, Taste MM, another chapter has started to unfold for OG. A tour has been confirmed for the first week of February in which they will be playing five shows in and around the city of Prague (Czech Republic) and the band's touring schedule is starting to fill up with shows in the Netherlands as well.

OG is very stoked about the upcoming St. Maarten Heineken Regatta which will mark the band's fifth time at the event!

Michael Maidwell, OG's lead singer, adds: 'Our strongest roots in Orange Grove are planted on Sint Maarten. Whenever we are down here we feel the energy of being back 'home'. This always leads to an exciting energy-packed show and we can't wait to play at Kim Sha beach for the 2011 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and show the island the best OG show they've ever witnessed!!'
