We sat down with Brandon Hardesty of Bumpin Uglies!
We got to sit down with Brandon at his home in Annapolis, Maryland and talked about the history of the band Bumpin Uglies; the meaning behind a few of their hit songs; and had him perform some acoustic sessions.
Bumpin Uglies has been on the rise for quite some time now. They have been spreading their lyrically based mix of Reggae, Ska, Punk for a whole decade. Touring around the country for years now they have seen their fan base grow exponentially which has allowed them to sell out shows and get on big festivals such as Reggae Rise Up and Cali Roots Fest! Its been incredible watching these guys reach new milestones over the years.
Their newest album "Beast From The East" released April 6, 2018 hit #1 on the Billboard Reggae chart and hit #24 on Billboard's Heat-seekers chart! The album also features artists from other top reggae bands like Passafire, Tropidelic, and Ballyhoo!
