Skank Bank: Skank Bank is an American reggae fusion band from the San Francisco Bay Area, California, formed in 2013. The diverse collective of musicians is led by California born guitarist/singer Gabriel Winter and Brazillian drummer/singer Marcos Rodrigues. The band has an eclectic sound that fuses roots reggae/ska with elements of jazz, funk, and rock―known for their heady psychedelic dub jams and breakdowns. Ranging from a quartet to a nonet, the group has had more than 20 members with the only consistent bandmates of Winter's being trumpet player Liam King, trombone player Adam Miller, and co-founding bassist Jiggly Streich.
Emerging from the 924 Gilman Street Berkeley ska-punk revival in early 2013, Skank Bank explored various styles of reggae and ska. Incorperating harmonic dissonance and improvisational elements of jazz with textural elements, groovy jams, and drones of psychedelic music, the group created a cosmic and soulful sound rooted in the sounds of Jamaican one-drop, rockers, and dancehall riddims.

Heavy City: Stripped-down '60s reggae, rocksteady, and Jamaican Soul. If you like Delroy Wilson, Harry J Allstars, Nicky Thomas, John Holt & The Paragons, Dave & Ansel Collins, The Upsetters, Ennio Morricone, Monty Norman, Clancy Eccles, King Tubby, The Ethiopians, Thee Hurricanes, The Expanders, The Impalers, etc.
