Inspecter 7 was formed in New Brunswick, NJ in 1992, during the “Ice Age” of New Jersey Ska. Fed up with the lack of Ska bands and Ska shows in the area, a rag tag group of local Skins, Mods, and others from the underground scene decided to make their own damn Ska band...and their own damned Ska shows. As the Ska flame began to flutter towards the beginning of the new millennium and the main stream crowd lost it’s interest in the underground flavor-of-the-decade, Inspecter 7 continued playing, albeit with far less frequency and span than they were accustomed to. They continued on a subdued live schedule through the 2000's but also slowly began piecing together another full length album which was completed in 2012. In 2013, on the heels of completing and releasing their 3rd full length CD, "Escapes And Illusions", on Little Dickman Records, and with a fresh new line up, they returned full force and full time to bring their own unique brand of Ska to the world. So stay tuned and prepare... Inspecter 7 is coming your way.
Soul Radics hit the scene with blistering traditional sounds and gritty soul melodies. Virtually fearless, it's an original take on ska, reggae, and rocksteady with powerful female vocals and heavy, hardhitting rhythms. Based in Nashville TN, Soul Radics have been traveling over the past year playing with major acts, including the Aggrolites, Fishbone, The Slackers, The Toasters, Stranger Cole and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. December 2012 saw the release of Down To The Hall on veteran ska reggae label Jump Up Records. The record is making waves on sound systems round the world.
By no means a band, more like a collective of fellas from the streets of NYC and East LA. playing Jamaican roots music, ska, American roots singing, and the blues. Make it to be what you want it to be. For us, this is what we love.
Mr. F is a Ska/Reggae/Jazz Fusion group that was formed by members from the Macomb based band AF7 along with some of their friends from other groups. Using their various backgrounds in musical studies and experiences the main goal is to get you dancing. The influences from many genres help separate Mr.F from what you hear everyday through your headphones
