About Slightly Stoopid
Slightly Stoopid is a centerpiece of the SoCal surf-skate punk wave of the 90s’ that has continued to define and lead the genre to this day. The band’s origin story includes being discovered by Bradley Nowell, the frontman of Sublime, while he was in drug rehabilitation with Doughty’s nurse mother and doctor boyfriend and overheard the band practicing in the garage. He then invited them to perform in Long Beach, CA at the Foot Hill Tavern. Not long after, Nowell signed them to his label Skunk Records. The group has evolved into a seven piece act known for their energetic and engaging live performances. The band is currently composed of founders Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald on guitar, bass and vocals, as well as Ryan Moran on drums, percussionist Oguer Ocon, Daniel “Dela” Delacruz on saxophone, keyboardist Paul Wolstencroft, and trumpet and trombone player Andy Geib. The band’s musical style is self-described as “folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, funk, metal and punk”. The group debuted their first studio album in 1996 Slightly $toopid, followed by The Longest Barrel Ride in 1998 and Live & Direct: Acoustic Roots in 2001; which features Bradley Nowell on the single “Prophet”. Slightly Stoopid’s next LP Everything You Need features their iconic red photo cover as well as hit tracks “Officer”, “Sweet Honey”, and “Collie Man”. Their following album in 2005, Closer to the Sun, includes the smash hit title-track as well as popular songs “The Joint”, “Bandelero”, “Up on a Plane” and more. Tracks such as “The Joint” and “Fat Spliffs” represent one of the integral themes of the music being the celebration of cannabis. On top of studio success, the group has toured extensively including with a variety of bands such as the Marley Brothers, blink-182, G. Love & Special Sauce, Pennywise, N.E.R.D. and more. They kept the albums rolling with Chronchitis in 2007 and Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast yet Stoopid in 2008. Their next album would be a 31 song live release titled Live at Roberto’s Tri Studios 9.13.11. The band would release another studio LP the following year titled Top of the World which features many other artists on tracks including friends Don Carlos, Angelo Moore, G. Love & Special Sauce, Chali 2na and Barrington Levy. 2015 saw the arrival of Meanwhile…Back at the Lab leading up to an extensive touring schedule in 2017. The year included international shows in South America, Australia, England and the Netherlands as well as 30+ national headlining dates on the band’s “Sounds of Summer 2017” amphitheater tour ranking in Pollstar’s Top 100 Global Tours of Summer 2017. Philanthropically focused, Slightly Stoopid has also generously supported pediatric cancer organizations Grind For Life and the Sheckler Foundation, as well as the Global Brightlight Foundation which provides solar power to underdeveloped areas around the world. Slightly Stoopid also joined The Grateful Dead’s legendary Bob Weir for a live webcast performance which included a cover of “Franklin’s Tower” and Prince’s “Purple Rain” recorded on the day of his passing. Since their most recent album, Everyday Life, Everyday People, the band has released a steady stream of singles with collaborators such as Stick Figure, The Movement, HIRIE, Tribal Seeds, Sublime With Rome and many more. The eclectic group has led a musical movement that cultivates a feeling once described as “a spiritual bath of positive party energy”. Slightly Stoopid will continue touring, making new music and letting the positive party energy waters flow.
