BUMSY AND THE MOOCHERS
BEAT THE SMART KIDS
Beat The Smart Kids is the product of local Chicago ska and punk veterans banding together to give you that ska punk and other junk sound.
With former and current members of Waste Basket, The Indecisives, Still Alive, and The Damn Tracks you can be sure to find catchy horn riffs, gravely vocals, and a driving punk sensibility.
SPACE MONKEY MAFIA
From somewhere deep within the jungles of St. Paul Minnesota, a band with a stellar new take on horn-driven, high-powered rock has emerged: Space Monkey Mafia. Their 2018 debut album “Sorry For Your Time”, features 10 original songs, capturing the band’s infectious live energy. Their sophomore release “Captain Crook EP” is available now!
DJ CHUCK WREN (Jump Up Records)
DJ Chuck Wren has hosted the ska radio show “Everything Off-Beat” across the Chicago dial since 1989, currently airing Sundays at 9 PM on WLUW-FM 88.7. Since 1993, his label JUMP UP RECORDS ( www.jumpuprecords.com ) has released over 100 albums including ones by local faves Deal’s Gone Bad, The Drastics, and Green Room Rockers. His monthly night at Delialh’s is Chicago’s longest running ska/reggae night at 18 years, and when he spins you see piles of piles of original Jamaican 45s sprawled all over the place.
