    Thirty years ago a bunch of upstarts ignited a spark on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. A spark that fired the imagination of the American music scene, causing a global conflagration. That music was Ska and the band was THE TOASTERS. The 2-Tone sound re-created in their own image by this unruly group of ruffians synthesized the classic 70’s British sound with east side Punk and rock and is now regarded as being the precursor to the Third Wave of Ska. The embers of the legacy bequeathed by The Specials, The Selecter, The Beat and Madness were rekindled and the Toasters hit the road. Hard. Five-thousand some gigs later the sparks are still flying and the band is ready to pick up the cudgels once again for their 2011 30th Anniversary tour. Some of the faces may be different but, of course, the song remains the same. The distinctive Toasters sound has recently been hallmarked as one of CBGB’s 20 core bands (Clear Channel Radio) and nothing could make the band prouder than being ranked up there with personal heroes The Ramones. To mark the occasion of the grand 30th, there will be a special brew Toasters 30th IPA flowing from the vats of SKA BREWING COMPANY in Boulder, Colorado. Following this up with a shot of Jaegermeister they will be ready to roll the Bandwagon across the USA from coast to coast There has been much acclaim from Billboard, the New York Times, Alternative Press, MTV and many others but the band is more interested in playing for the fans. To that end the group has undertaken missions across the globe, playing from Siberia to Istanbul and back, laying down the tracks for others to follow. According to lead singer Bucket, nothing can eclipse the vibes of a sweaty packed-out club with the audience in your face and the bit between the teeth. It’s important not to forget where you came from. Lots of bands do that but not the Toasters! Members Robert Hingley AKA Bucket / Buck - Guitar, Vocals http://www.toasters.org/ From the ever burning ashes with a new fire burning comes The Rudie Crew rejuvenated and ready to bring to the world Skragga a combination of Reggae and Ska lead by the musical ambassadors El Husey and Dan Dulin blending the riddims and creating the music along with their infectious horns, and Roy Radics twisting up fast style firing lyrics with his unique combination of Mc style and sing jay vocals done in a JA to UK style......This all comes together with heavy heavy bass lines by the ever so talented Philly B and and perfectly coordinated by drummer extraordinary Kevin Raczka, now replaced by Beatblast that you have to experience live to see this guy murder beats, and all while Deanblast so melodic and animated on Keyboards and lead guitar being held down by the ever so talented John cave now replaced by Dave Parsons rocking on Lead guitar and backing Vocals create this amazing sound.The album was mixed and produced in a variety of studios and utilizing the recording skills and professionalism of P-dub where Radics and P-dub took 5 of the tracks already laid down from the mystro himself Brett Tubin and created 5 of what the Rudie Crew now stand for driving ska and Reggae in our own special style, that when we say no carbon copy we mean cannot be duplicated!
