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.
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.
