Watch & Listen
The Toasters have been touring across the globe incessantly for the last 33 years. Jakarta, Bogota, Irkutsk, Istanbul, Shanghai - you name it, they’ve been there and done it. Since breaking out in 1981 on the rough and tumble East Side of NYC, the band’s name has become synonymous with DIY touring and a fierce indie ethic. Here we are in 2013 and the calendar is already packed with two North American tours, South America, Europe, South East Asia, Russia and points east. In April the band will feature at the London International Ska Festival. The milestone of 5000 live shows is long out of sight in the rear view mirror.
To celebrate the new year the Toasters are releasing THE HOUSE OF SOUL vinyl 45rpm on their own Megalith records label. A series of singles will presage the LIFE IS A PARTY album. There will also be releases on London’s Cherry Red Records of a special anniversary compilation as well as a re-edit of the classic 1987 POOL SHARK album. 2013 will also see a vinyl release of their breakthrough 1991 NEW YORK FEVER (produced by the great Joe Jackson) in collaboration with Jump Up Records out of Chicago.
The Toasters have been hailed as “ska pioneers” (Billboard magazine), the “sound of NYC” (New York Times) and as a core artist at CBGB. Widely acclaimed as being the progenitors of Third Wave Ska they are a true American 2-Tone band.
Spies Like Us
Behold, the first ska band out of San Antonio, Spies Like Us! Bringing you the traditional sounds of ska with surf and reggae influences.
Spies is an eight piece band consisting of trombone, trumpet, guitar, drums, bass, keyboards, and two vocalists. In the first ten months after we started, we played over fifteen shows in cities all over south Texas including San Antonio, Houston, Seguin, New Braunfuls, and Corpus Christi. We've played with other Texas bands including Slaphappy, The Grown Ups, Los Skarnales, The Suspects, and The Contradicks. We have also played with some out of state bands (like Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Less Than Jake, Let's Go Bowling, The Pietasters, Reel Big Fish, Regatta 69, The Rudiments, Skankin' Pickle, The Skunks, and Slapstick...) If we ever come to your town or if you are ever in ours, come see the band that keeps your feet movin'!
Steady Legend is an original ska/reggae outfit. We have an upbeat, fun, catchy sound that all music listeners can enjoy. Come dance to some Steady Legend at a show soon!
