Cheezy and the Crackers is a Fusion/Alternative/Reggae group #based in New Jersey. In 2005, the band started out playing at local bars and clubs. During these shows, they would showcase their original material, which created a steadily growing fan base in Southern NJ. Quickly building a following, and with the immense amount of positive feedback towards their original material, the band was motivated to record their debut album, "Don't Talk About It, Be About It..", which released in April 2011. Selling over 1,000 copies in 6 months, lead singer Cheezy McNasty, with the help of the Crackers, released the material that they complied while recording 'Don't Talk About It...', titled "Cheezy McNasty for Mayor" in December 2011. Their Junior release, "Bananas for Sasquatch", hit the Top 100 on the iTunes Reggae charts, and was released at Hemp Heals Music Festival w/ Matisyahu September 7th. Their latest EP "Goodness Gracious" peaked at #4 on Amazon.com Reggae chart.
