The Slackers - The Big Apple's Answer to Ska
Possibly America's most successful ska band, this Big Apple six-piece have made it their business to purposely promote an infectiously upbeat, calypso-influenced brand of music. Having spent over two decades in the industry, this collection of talents are known for having led an unusually prolific career for a band born out of the ska revivalist scene of the '90s.

The Slackers Biography - Ska Gets Political
Adopting a more guitar-based line-up when forming in Brooklyn back in 1991, it didn't take long for the group to add a horn section and truly transform their musical direction. 1996 saw the release of debut LP Better Late Than Never, followed closely by Redlight. Combining reggae and ska influences with hints of dub, their albums proved to be critically-popular, with a steadily building fan-base following suit. It was during the early '00s that this six-piece gained particular notoriety for their cover of Bon Jovi's 'Wanted Dead or Alive' and later the release of Close My Eyes. A bold response to the events of 9/11, the album demonstrated the group's depth and diversity and brought a more serious edge to a genre known for its laid-back tracks. But the group's most pronounced strengths are seen at each energetically-charged live show. Filling the stage with trumpeters, guitarists and keyboardists, gigs of any size manage to feel intimate as they get audience members involved in the on-stage action. Producing a larger-than-life sound, the band tow the line between amazingly animated and comfortably relaxed, getting everyone into party mode.
