Danny Pease and the Regulators
Danny Pease and the Regulators (DPR) has been a strong force in New England for a handful of years. Composed of musicians with ranging backgrounds, their style of "Dirty Punk Reggae" continues to morph and take shape, while always staying true to reggae roots and ska rhythms. With their home base in Western Mass, they have steadily been scouring the Northeast and impressing newcomers with high energy and uplifting shows. Even being described as "A veritable army of energetic rockers... DPR blends ska, reggae, rock and hip-hop into a whirlwind of whoop-ass..." - The Valley Advocate

Slip and Fall
Slip And Fall is a four-piece ska/punk outfit from New Haven, CT who take as much from Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, and Peter Tosh as they do The Clash, The Specials, and Operation Ivy. Politically aware with a groove to fill the dance floor and enough singalong choruses to keep the songs stuck in your head for days. Slip And Fallwill soon be hitting the studio to work on their debut album.
So Long Liberty
So Long Liberty is an American punk band from Eastern CT. The band consists of guitarist and vocalist Shane Alsop, bassist Pete Kwiecinski, drummer Tom Fay, and Keyboardist Joe Nettleton. Founded in 2011 by Shane, Pete, and Tom, the band released its first demo e.p. under the name “The Excitement Gang”. In 2014 Bret Barton joined the band on lead guitar. The band subsequently recorded Single for the song "CT Summer" and continued to develop their sound which is a fusion of punk, reggae, ska and rock. After a year of playing shows regionally, Bret left the band and was replaced by Joe on keyboards in late 2015. The Excitement Gang continued to evolve until in late 2016 when it became apparent that the band has changed in message and sound from its beginnings. A new name and focus was necessary. So Long Liberty entered the studio with seasoned regional musician and recording engineer James Castelano and completed their newest EP “So Long Liberty" ST for release in early 2017.
So Long Liberty is influenced by many other fusion and purist bands in both ska and punk music. Direct influenced can be heard in The Clash, The Specials, and Operation Ivy.
Members of So Long Liberty are/were also in the bands Forced Reality, Flip Ya For Real, Distance No Object, Blastmat, and The Distributors.
