For 32 years, the NYC-based and critically acclaimed Slackers have been touring the world with their blend of Ska, Reggae, and Soul. 

Since 1991, the Slackers have released fifteen albums and countless singles, while their 1000s of live performances feed their fans with energetic sets of ecstatic music. 

The Slackers have been called ‘the Sound of New York’ by the New York Times. They were described by Brooklyn Vegan as a “clean mix of Ska, Reggae, and Soul that gets dirtied up by Vic Ruggiero’s tough New York accent.’ 

In April 2022, The Slackers released a new album, “Dont Let The Sunlight Fool Ya” (Pirates Press) which quickly shot to the top of the US Billboard charts.  The first time that a Slackers’ album has charted!  Ironically after 30 years as a band, they qualified as a Billboard  ‘new artist!’ The Washington Post noted that the Slackers  “remain at the top of their game.” 

Voodoo Glow Skulls
 were formed in 1988 by Eddie Casillas, Jorge Casillas, Jerry O’neill and Frank Casillas. After a few years of backyard party shows, cassette demos, 7” singles and first club gigs, they released their debut album “Who is, this is?” for Dr. Strange records in 1993, gaining the attention of Brett Gurewitz, owner of Epitaph records. The band then signed to Epitaph records and released four albums, starting in 1995 with “Firme”, their most successful album to date, then followed by “Baile de los Locos”, “Band Geek Mafia” and “Symbolic”.
 The band began to tour worldwide with their first European tour in 1996 followed by Japan, Australia, Mexico, and South America.
The band has been featured on several of Epitaph's Punk-O-Rama releases and has had music featured in video games, TV and movies.

Chris Murray is a unique force on today’s music scene. He earned a strong reputation as a dynamic performer and gifted songwriter armed only with an acoustic guitar. Life has led Chris down a musical path to the very roots of reggae music. From trading songs on acoustic guitar and singing, to jamming and recording, Chris has served his apprenticeship with the finest musicians associated with the genre. He has collaborated with countless talented musicians from around the globe, and his journeys have taken him throughout the world being inspired and inspiring people's lives.
