Bumpin' Uglies
Bumpin' Uglies
or 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.

The Bumpin Uglies’ origin story begins with singer/guitarist Brandon Hardesty playing open mics around Maryland. He met bassist Dave Wolf not too long after and Bumpin Uglies was born. With a proper set of wheels and TJ Haslett on drums, they went off to spread their music across the country like modern day Johnny Appleseeds. The group recently added Chad Wright on keyboards, expanding on their sound.
Raised on everything from Bad Religion and The Beach Boys to Sublime and Reel Big Fish, Bumpin Uglies have managed to take inspiration from some of the best out there, run it through their own distinctive filter and end up with a truly original take on the various genres creating an original hybrid. With a unique sound that’s nearly impossible to ignore, the band has gotten everyone from dreadlocked kids to PBR-fueled tattooed punks moving their heads to their music at festivals and on headlining tours across the country.

When they aren’t on the road, they’ve been camped in the studio, churning out three full lengths, two EPs and a live record. Their latest, 2016’s Keep It Together came out on Right Coast 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. They’re already at work on the follow up, but true to their rep as being on the never-ending tour, chances are they’ll be coming to a venue near you soon.
The Effinays

The Effinays is a funk/rock/reggae band from Dallas, TX. The band formed in 2007 and originally performed as an instrumental unit throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. In 2011, the band revamped the entire line up, except for one of the founding members and morphed in to the comedic, old school funk, classic rock, reggae with flashes of Latin grooves band that one could clearly sense that they enjoy what they do.

• Joe “Big Spook” Martinez - Lead Vocals
• Valenti "Funk" Thomas - Drums/Keys/Vocals
• Alex “Cave Man” Rivera De Jesús - Guitars
• Daniel "D-Slim" Cisneros - Percussion

“With the current state of the local music scene on a slow incline, it is often hard to find traction on such unsure ground. It is also hard to make a name for yourself in a over-saturated market. But, Dallas up and comers, The Effinays, are doing just that.” - The Urban Advocate

“Doused in funk and served hot with a side of reggae, The Effinays host "Funk Mondays" at Sundown at Granada each week, washing away your workweek blues with the six-piece band's unique blend of jammy reggae and hip-hop-infused funk.” - Dallas Observer

“That Latin flare fits in somewhere with their funky brand of dance hall-style reggae, complete with a brass section.“ - White Rock Lake Weekly

“Ya’ll made my day!” - George Clinton

Tony and Jay were born unto their mother.

They then decided ska was pretty cool.

A band was later formed.

People kinda liked the tunes.

Today, that band is the Broke$.

Tomorrow, we will still be here.
