San Diego's rock reggae virtuosi Slightly Stoopid are excited to be getting back out on the road this summer for their "Return of The Red Eye" tour. The band will perform at Artpark in Lewiston on Wednesday, with support from Zion I, The Grouch, and Eligh.
Since Slightly Stoopid's inception more than two decades ago, the band has become one of the most successful reggae bands to have ever surfaced from Cali. After releasing 12 studio albums, including four live albums and their eighth and most recent album, "Meanwhile... Back at the Lab" (lauded for their multi-instrumental cross-genre blend of rock, reggae, folk and blues with hip-hop, punk and funk elements), the band is still going strong.
Earlier this year, the band visited Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead's TRI Studios. Together, Slightly Stoopid and Bob Weir performed with several friends such as Karl Denson, and Angelo Moore and honored the late Prince with a surprise "Purple Rain" tribute, which can be viewed HERE and below.
Slightly Stoopid is Kyle McDonald (guitar, bass, vocals), Miles Doughty (guitar, bass, vocals), Ryan "Rymo" Moran (drums), Oguer "OG" Ocon (percussion), Daniel "Dela" Delacruz (saxophone), Paul Wolstencroft (keyboards), Andy Geib (trumpet, trombone) with special guest and "unofficial 8th member" Karl Denson (The Rolling Stones/Greyboy Allstars) on saxophone.
