About The Slackers
For 30 years, the NYC-based and critically acclaimed band The Slackers have been touring the world with their blend of Ska, Reggae, and Soul. A sextet based out of New York City, they mix together ska, reggae, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll, balancing strong rhythms with classic songwriting and poignant contemporary lyrics. Since 1991, the band have released fifteen albums and countless singles, while their 1000s of live performances feed their fans with energetic sets of ecstatic music.
Massive praise from the press, The Slackers are “the best ska band in the world” (Rude International), “the pick of the US crop” (Metal Hammer), “the sound of New York’ (New York Times), “is about as close to perfect as it gets” (Ink 19), and “one of the best bands in the United States” (axs.com). In normal years, the Slackers play around 100 live shows a year, but 2020 put that to a screeching halt. Looking for a safe and responsible way to keep performing, the band switched to live streaming and partnering with their agency STG & Livefrom.events, they made 4 complete livestream band concerts, each concert was broadcast worldwide & had around 1000+ attendees each time.
