Watch & Listen
For nearly a decade now, Bumpin Uglies have been playing their brand of groove-heavy jams – a curiously fun mix of ska, Reggae and good ole’ punk rock – all while putting strong lyrics at the forefront of the music. It’s a formula that quickly took them from local favorites, playing around Annapolis, to a national stage. With a wildly infectious sound, tattoo-worthy lyrics and an itch to take their music to the masses, the band piled into the van years ago and have rarely seen home since.
The Bumpin Uglies’ origin story begins with singer/guitarist Brandon Hardesty playing open mics around Maryland. He met bassist Dave Wolf not too long after and Bumpin Uglies was born. With a proper set of wheels and TJ Haslett on drums, they went off to spread their music across the country like modern day Johnny Appleseeds. The group recently added Chad Wright on keyboards, expanding on their sound.
Raised on everything from Bad Religion and The Beach Boys to Sublime and Reel Big Fish, Bumpin Uglies have managed to take inspiration from some of the best out there, run it through their own distinctive filter and end up with a truly original take on the various genres creating an original hybrid. With a unique sound that’s nearly impossible to ignore, the band has gotten everyone from dreadlocked kids to PBR-fueled tattooed punks moving their heads to their music at festivals and on headlining tours across the country.
When they aren’t on the road, they’ve been camped in the studio, churning out three full lengths, two EPs and a live record. Their latest, 2016’s Keep It Together came out on Right Coast Records and is proof that the band has found their groove. The album consists of a dozen stand-out tracks, any one of which could be considered instant classics for the band. They’re already at work on the follow up, but true to their rep as being on the never-ending tour, chances are they’ll be coming to a venue near you soon.
We are No Vertebrae. We all like the same genre of music and play instruments. We love bands who play music with their hearts instead of their greed. What more is there to say?
4-piece, original reggae rock and hip hop group, from New Jersey. We like to party.
It all started as a jam in the basement of guitarist Mason’s home where three friends came together to create music. Developed through friendship and dedication Earth Diver was born. Built on free range, organic jams Earth Diver has produced hours of original music. It didn’t take long to develop their own live show of sight and sound. The guys are always working on new material and fresh tunes to ease their cravings for live music and keep your ears happy. Come out and experience an Earth Diver party to dance, rage and spread Peace and Love with fellow grass fed thinkers.
