Stacked Like Pancakes
Stacked Like Pancakes
Reinvigorating the sounds of classic ska, Stacked Like Pancakes (SLP) piles on boisterous horns and punk rock attitude to create high energy music synthesizing the vibes of Reel Big Fish, twenty one pilots, Foo Fighters, and an untraceable amount of other artists and genres. Since 2007, SLP has shared the stage with national and international acts, toured on the Vans Warped Tour, headlined their own self-booked tours, and in December 2015 released their latest crowd-funded 15-track monster-album THIS IS US.

The token with this group is their live performance. Concert venues and music patrons alike should be prepared for the stage to shake, the crowd to be wild and unpredictable, and the show to be a deliberate fusion of spontaneity and precision. Their community fan base – the #PancakeNation – is hungry for their band to grow. Stacked Like Pancakes epitomizes a tough DIY band despite a meaningless band name, and are rightfully on the rise to claim an international stage of their own.
The Knock Blockers
The Knock Blockers
We are the Knock Blockers, the #1 ska band based out of Colorado Springs* with members from all over the country brought together by our love for all waves and forms of ska. Living in a world with EDM and boring pop music, the music scene needs a fresh injection of upbeat ska and punk. We have numerous influences including Reel Big Fish, The Skatalites, Jimmy Cliff, The Specials, The Toasters, and Less than Jake. Ska has always involved the combination of various styles of music with the core Jamaican sound, and The Knock Blockers continue this tradition when writing originals with the classic two tone and 3rd wave sounds but blending in other influences such as blues and rockabilly.

Our members have all played (and currently play) with various groups and many different genres in addition to ska. To have a little fun, we all go by certain aliases: Andy Gorilla on bass, Doc Von Krantz on keys, Mr. Soup Sandwich on the drums, Rocket Surgeon on guitar, and the collective Loafer Brigade in the horn section (bone, sax, and trumpet). Each alias has a special meaning to its bearer; for example the Loafer Brigade is united in their choice of footwear on daily basis.
