Bumpin Uglies, Rude Boy George
For nearly a decade now, Bumpin Uglies have been playing their brand of groove-heavy jams – a curiously fun mix of ska, Reggae and good ole' punk rock – all while putting strong lyrics at the forefront of the music. It's a formula that quickly took them from local favorites, playing around Annapolis, to a national stage. With a wildly infectious sound, tattoo-worthy lyrics and an itch to take their music to the masses, the band piled into the van years ago and have rarely seen home since. When they aren't on the road, they've been camped in the studio, churning out four full-length albums, two acoustic albums, three EP's and a Live record. Their latest, 2018's Beast From The East came out on Space Duck Records and is proof that the band has found their groove. The album consists of a dozen stand-out tracks, any one of which could be considered instant classics for the band. The album also features some big names in the East Coast reggae-rock community including Ballyhoo!'s Howi Spangler, the Movement's Gary Dread, Passafire's Ted Bowne, Tropidelic's Derek McBryde, Matthew Roads & Young James, Zach Fowler of Sun Dried Vibes and Oogee Wawa's Jesse Lee. Buzz magazine raves "Beast From The East IS A CAREFULLY CRAFTED PUNK-REGGAE GEM."
