The Slackers
The Slackers
For more than 28 years, the
NYC-based and critically
acclaimed Slackers have
been touring the world with
their blend of Ska, Reggae,
and Soul.
Since the early 1990s, the Slackers have released fifteen
records and countless singles while their live
performances feed their fans with their energetic sets of
ecstatic music. And the press agrees: Modern Vinyl says
“For some bands, hitting 25 years together seems light
years away. For The Slackers, it’s a cause for celebration.
The band is deeply rooted within the ska movement, while
their “Jamaican Rock n’ Roll” sound sets them apart from
many bands today.
Other press state that the Slackers are “the best ska band
in the world” (Rude International), “the pick of the US
crop” (Metal Hammer), “the sound of New York’ (New York
Times), “is about as close to perfect as it gets” (Ink 19),
and “one of the best bands in the United States”
(axs.com).
Their festival performances have included Punk Rock
Bowling, Fest Florida, Boomtown Fair, Santa Monica Pier
Twilight Concert Series, Rebellion Fest, Summerjam,
Mighty Sounds, Ruhrpott Rodeo, Shamballa, Pouzza Fest,
Montreal Jazz Festival, Austin Reggae Fest, Dour Fest,
Lowlands, and many others.
Their headline dates in 2018 included venues such a
sellout of the Regent in Los Angeles, a sellout of Slim’s in
San Francisco, a 2 night sold out stand at the Horshoe
Tavern in Toronto, a 3-night stand at Reggie’s in Chicago,
and some 90 other shows.
Upcoming gigs include the ‘Big Slack Give Back’ free
summer concert series, a 3 night stand at the Kingsland in
Brooklyn, the Sierra Nevada Reggae Festival, and a 24
date tour of Europe. Looking to fill 30 more tour dates
by the end of the year! See you there!
The band is currently touring behind their latest single,
‘Wrongful Suspicion’ on Badasonic Records.
