The Duppies
-Duppy: (noun) taken from Jamaican folklore; an unruly spirit risen from a consecrated grave; a ghost; a poltergeist- Formed in 2004, The Duppies have been sighted possessing many a unsuspecting citizen and driving them into frenetic dancing spasms that can only be described as "musical convulsions of the soul." Fermenting in the dirty south swamps of Gainesville, FL, The Duppies have set out to conquer all non-believers in a display of sweet musical Armageddeon… "THIS IS NEWSFLASH! / Lisen dis and lisen good! / As we lead yah now to da gallows wood! / Open yah ears to da sweet and fine, cuz no one's Rocksteady is as sweet as mine! / And don't ya step into our discotech, cuz you know the riddim it gonna BREAK YUH NECK!!!"
Control This!
Control This!
Control This! has quickly risen to the top of the Central Florida ska and reggae scene since its formation in March of 2012. Formed by saxophonist Jeff Richey, Control This! provides authentic ska, rocksteady and early reggae sounds. After touring the globe for 9+ years in the legendary 2-tone and 3rd wave ska band, The Toasters, Jeff has decided to go back and rediscover the root of his passion for Jamaican music. Control This! pays tribute to Studio One and Treasure Isle sounds of the 1960's and 1970's. From fast-paced traditional ska instrumentals, to the bubbling sounds of rocksteady, to the heavy sounds of lover's rock and reggae, Control This! touch on all the nuances and sophistication of the early Jamaican music.
