" There are few local bands that are as quintessentially Santa Cruz as Ribsy's Nickel. Melting three of the town's musical passions—muscular rock, laid-back reggae and punk—the band could serve as a veritable soundtrack to Santa Cruz. The band has seen a fair amount of national interest--including songs on MTV and surf videos, but they keep their affiliations local. All about representing their beloved Westside, it's music for hard-partying bros and the girls that love them. "
