NYC rocksteady hero's The Slackers will be tearing it up on the festival stage in Asbury Park, NJ. Combining their unique blend of ska/reggae with blues and jazz has set them apart from the onslaught of pop/ska bands that infiltrated the scene in the 90's. Smashing the stereotypes of "Ska" as happy, uptempo, and shallow music, the Slackers play with an aggressive edge and their songs veer in themes from the personal to the political. They can out jam any hippie band and outwrite most singer songwriters and we're stoked to have them on board for Punk Rock Bowling East!
