The west coast of Wisconsin is not typically thought of as a hotbed of ska and reggae music. However, TUGG, hailing from La Crosse, WI has done an amazing job channeling tropical grooves and breezy melodies and has quickly become a top draw in the Midwest and beyond. Coming from a state known more for the Green Bay Packers, cold weather, and cheese, they boast an impressive resume of rubbing shoulders with Reggae and Ska heavyweights. From shows with Ziggy Marley, Bad Religion, Sublime with Rome, Slightly Stoopid, and The English Beat to Tours with The Wailers, The Dirty Heads, and PASSAFIRE... TUGG continues to prove why they’re a fast rising star of the alternative reggae/ska scene. All of the bands last 5 releases have debuted in the Top 50 of the iTunes Reggae Chart.
