The Pietasters

The seed was planted in 1990. A bunch of friends started a band with no pretensions: the idea was to make music for house parties, not to make a career out of music. These guys and a girl grew up in and around Washington, D.C. The scene was small and all the Punks, Skins, and Mods intermixed in those days. You were as likely to see a Mod at a Scream show as you were to see a Punk at a Toasters show. This varied influence is what informed the covers that the Pietasters played and the originals they wrote trying to emulate their favorite bands. From Two-Tone Ska, to Jamaican crooners like Alton Ellis, to Stax, Motown, harDCore, and British Punk, the Pietasters played what they liked to play and the house partiers appreciated the mix and crammed into basements and living rooms for sweaty all night keg drinking and dancing.

High School Football Heroes

Joker's Republic

We are a Ska Punk band from North NJ with Pop Punk hooks that delivers high energy performances infused with pop culture references when we take the stage.

The Waffle Stompers

The Waffle Stompers are a Post-Ska (it ain't the 90's anymore) band from New Jersey. Deal with it.

We love to play live, the bigger the stage the bigger the performance. We've toured all over the country so if you want to see us live hit us up and we'll try our damndest to work it out.

We released a parody cover of 'Somebody that I used to know' where the six of us played a single ukulele. The video went viral and got us a lot of national exposure. We know Walk Off The Earth did it on a guitar, that's the joke. We were never on Ellen, but we were on the Today Show.


Since the bands inception in the Spring of 2000, they performed their energetic live shows up and down the east coast. . Shortly after the release of their third album the guys called it a day. Some members of the group established other music projects during this time.
After a 13 year hiatus, the members of SideSwiped have gotten back together and have already started writing new music as well as performing- 8 boys making noise at it again.
