Control This! has quickly risen to the top of the Central Florida ska and reggae scene since its formation in March of 2012. Formed by saxophonist Jeff Richey, Control This! provides authentic ska, rocksteady and early reggae sounds. After touring the globe for 9+ years in the legendary 2-tone and 3rd wave ska band, The Toasters, Jeff has decided to go back and rediscover the root of his passion for Jamaican music. Control This! pays tribute to Studio One and Treasure Isle sounds of the 1960's and 1970's. From fast-paced traditional ska instrumentals, to the bubbling sounds of rocksteady, to the heavy sounds of lover's rock and reggae, Control This! touch on all the nuances and sophistication of the early Jamaican music.
Oklahoma Stackhouse is a musical partnership between Jack Hinz and Nick Muccigrosso. Bringing together previous band experience and influences from punk, reggae, and blues, they set out to make music for your enjoyment. "Jah Won't Let Me Live" is an album filled with passion, hard work, and wood flooring. Recorded in two days at Sound Lounge Studios in Orlando, FL, this is a raw and exciting listen from an up-and-coming ambitious band.
