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 showcasing their original material, which created a steadily growing fan base throughout Southern NJ. 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 '11, selling over 1,000 units 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 '11. Their Junior release, "Bananas for Sasquatch", hit the Top 10 on the iTunes Reggae charts, and was released at Hemp Heals Music Festival w/ Matisyahu Sept '13. Their latest EP "Goodness Gracious" peaked at #4 on Amazon.com Reggae chart in Jan '15.
With a unique style all their own, Cheezy and the Crackers have been making crowds shake their stuff from coast to coast, while bringing good music and a positive message to the masses. As a result, this internationally touring act has had songs played on a number of college radio and FM radio stations all over the U.S. and Europe, as well as securing shows with artists and bands such as Snoop Dogg, ZZ Top, Matisyahu, The Avett Brothers, Rebelution, Collie Buddz, Less Than Jake, Culture Club, O.A.R., Darius Rucker, The Wailers, Juelz Santana, Alice in Chains, Badfish (Sublime Tribute), Cracker, Run DMC, and countless more.
