    The Slackers

    Ska

    The Slackers are a classic American band that is equal parts grit and grace. Their slow rise against the odds is a story of perseverance and a belief in their musical vision, what Vic likes to call, "Jamaican Rock N Roll." While they have been influenced, and even personally taught by Jamaican Ska/Reggae originators, like the Skatalites and the Upsetters (Original backing band for the Wailers), the band sees its music as an extension of the traditions of the United States. This band is equally appreciative of old Blues, Country, 60s Soul, Rock, and Rn'B as it is of Reggae, Rocksteady, Dub, and Ska. It is as if the Rolling Stones or the Yardbirds had grown up on Bob Marley as well as Muddy Waters.

    Smashing the stereotypes of "Ska" as happy, uptempo, and shallow music, the Slackers play with an aggressive edge and their songs veer in themes from the personal to the political. They can out jam any hippie band and outwrite most singer songwriters. From their 1996 release, Better Late Than Never through to 2010 with The Great Rocksteady Swindle, they have established themselves as America's premiere interpreters and innovators of Jamaican music and a pretty good rock band to boot.

  • Doped Up Dollies

    Doped Up Dollies

    Alternative

    The Doped Up Dollies are a 3 piece singing group not unlike the Surpremes. Founded by Big D and the Kids Table frontman David McWane in 2008.

    The Doped Up Dollies' first recorded with Big D and the Kids Table on the 2009 release of 'Fluent in Stroll' - A first for the band; a style very different from any of their other previous records. Fluent in Stroll is a mixture of hop scotch, double dutch schoolyard rhymes, reggae, and soul. This style is known as Stroll, a genre invented by Big D and the Kids Table.

    The Dollies were a staple addition to Big D's set on the Vans Warped tour in 2009 and a full US headlining tour later that year.

    In December of 2009-January 2010, The Doped Up Dollies traveled across seas with Big D to the UK on a 3 week supporting tour for Reel Big Fish.

    The Dollies continued to tour with Big D and the Kids Table until the summer of 2010 in support of bands like State Radio and Flogging Molly.

    In 2011 The Doped Up Dollies appeared again on the release of Big D and the Kids Table's record 'For the Damned, the Dumb, and the Delirious." Holding down back up vocals to songs like " Stringers" and " Roxbury."

    In October 2012 Big D and the Kids Table featured the Doped Up Dollies on a Booze Cruise in NYC playing "Fluent in Stroll" in its entirety.

    June 11th 2013 Big D and the Kids Table set out to record a double release to appease the tastes of all of their fans by releasing a Ska- Punk style record called STOMP and a Stroll style record called-of course- STROLL. Stroll features the Dollies on almost all tracks and for the first time solo tracks! The song "What I Got" is for the first time, a Dollies only single. This album also for the first time offers TWO duets - The track "Tell Me Why" sings of a silly young love performed by Doped Up Dollies veteran, Sirae Richardson and David McWane. Mcwane also duets with singer, Brie Finn on the track 'Drink Me Down".

    Future touring for the Doped Up Dollies and a possible solo record are being discussed as you read this!
