TUGG - Wisconsin Reggae and Alternative music Band

Tugg Reggae Band - The west coast of Wisconsin is not typically thought of as a hotbed of alternative reggae music.

However this band 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 heavyweights. From shows with Barrington Levy and Slightly Stoopid to recording tracks with the likes of Pato Banton, Josh Heinrichs, and Outlaw Nation, they continues to prove why they are a fast rising star in the alternative reggae scene.

Both of the bands last 2 albums, 2009’s Slow Chill EP, and their full length 2010 debut, Come Sunrise (Produced by Brad Ziggens courtesy of Skunk Records) debuted in the Top 40 of the American Reggae Charts on iTunes and spent 10 weeks in the Top 10 of the Reggae and Reggae/Rock charts on Cdbaby.com.

In the Spring of 2011, they was asked by The Dirty Heads (EMG) to provide support for a string of shows in the Midwest on their first ever headlining tour, which included a sold out show at the House of Blues-Chicago on St. Patrick’s Day.

It is often said that to achieve greatness you must first surround yourself with greatness. If that is any indication about TUGG than their future is looking good. In the last few years alone they have been fortunate enough to share the stage with: Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, Cage the Elephant, SOJA, Barrington Levy, Pepper, The Aggrolites, Tribal Seeds, Ballyhoo!, Iration, The Movement, Mad Professor, Karl Denson, Rusted Root, Pato Banton, The Ziggens, Josh Heinrichs, New Politics, Pacific Dub, Tech Nine and many more.
