Southern California’s leading reggae act is set to embark on numerous tour dates across the globe this year.
Slightly Stoopid, the twenty-plus-year veteran of the American reggae genre, is certainly no stranger to international shows. In truth, the band has yet to see a stage that isn’t suited for their style. From the early days of touring to dingy clubs in Dodge van, without air conditioning, to ultimate tour buses, hotels and massive amphitheaters, arenas and international music festivals, Slightly Stoopid has earned their keep in the music business as an independent band.
Mass appeal for the band has not been limited to the United States or the devoted destinations for all reggae touring acts, their home state of California. Over the years, Slightly Stoopid has toured internationally with shows in South America, especially Brazil, Europe, Australia and the South Pacific, as well as Asia.
Still riding high after their most recent album release, Meanwhile…Back at the Lab (2015), Slightly Stoopid will begin their 2017 touring schedule outside of the United States. Some of the destinations for the upcoming tour will include Brazil, Costa Rica and Australia.
In Brazil, Slightly Stoopid will be spending more than a week performing across the expansive country touring with Donavon Frankenreiter, and an appearance at a festival, alongside Jason Mraz.
After performing at two of the bigger reggae festivals in the United States, One Love Music Festival (Long Beach, CA) and Reggae Rise Up (St. Petersburg, FL), Slightly Stoopid will perform at Jungle Jam in March. Fellow Cali-Reggae acts, Stick Figure and Fortunate Youth will also be featured on the bill in Central America.
A month later, Slightly Stoopid will be returning to Australia for the first time in three-years. While spending a weekend in Australia, Slightly Stoopid will be a featured performer at the Byron Bay Blues Fest on April 15th, which will include two-sets from the band.
