Following in the footsteps of Lee Scratch Perry, the Wailers, G. Love and the Long Beach Dub Allstars, Slightly Stoopid blend acoustic rock with hip-hop, dub, punk, ska and reggae, attracting an army of die-hard fans, "Ese Locos." Core members Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald were high school classmates when they signed to Sublime frontman Brad Nowell's label, Skunk Records. Like their Skunk cronies, the band helped define the aggressive sounds of the '90s SoCal skate-punk scene, beginning with their 1996 self-titled debut. Drummer Rob Moran and percussionist/vocalist Oguer Ocon joined the group for third studio album Everything You Need , which showcased their newly vamped live-dub sound. With 2005's Closer to the Sun , the band finally found a home on the Billboard charts. Famous for their crowd rousing jam sessions, Slightly Stoopid continue to tour with a variety of artists, including G. Love & Special Sauce, N.E.R.D, the Roots, Toots and the Maytals and more, playing nearly 200 gigs a year. 2007 kicked off their Summer Haze tour with G.Love and Ozomatli.
