Hailing from the East Bay (Concord, Ca), Space Monkey Gangstas (SMG) is an eclectic blend of Reggae, Rock, Ska, and a myriad of other influences into a original sound that has infectious melodies and dancable breakdowns. Since 2006, this quartet has been headlining local shows up and down the West Coast.
SMG's diverse sound has allowed them to open for national acts ranging from Reggae/Rock A-listers Rebelution, Rock and roll icon Dick Dale, and top bay area hip hop acts like Too $hort, Andre Nikatina, and The Parcyde.
In 2009, SMG released their only studio album to date "Aluminum Reggae" (2009) available in it's entirety on iTunes and Reverbnation. In it's 7th year of existence, the band released their first Music Video " I5 (Live)"(2013) filmed by Kevin Amodia of Meltin Pot Productions which has also led to a number of high quality live recordings available exclusively on Reverbnation.
Keep an eye out for new songs and live recordings from this perennial local favorite playing in bars, venues, parking lots, back yards, and really wherever people will let them play.
