Join us on Saturday, May 11th as Bumpin Uglies returns to the Music Yard with support from TreeHouse!
Since the early 2000s, Bumpin Uglies have been carving their own path; channeling their tenacious and relentless attitude into their meticulous craft. Rejecting conventional norms, Bumpin Uglies has established a distinctive sound that is a perfect reflection of their Mid-Atlantic roots – gritty, down-to-earth, and bursting with charisma.
With a genre-defying approach that seamlessly fuses punk energy with ska’s infectious grooves and reggae’s laid-back rhythms, Bumpin Uglies creates a musical experience that captivates audiences far and wide. Their live performances are legendary, infusing the crowd with an electrifying energy that leaves no one untouched.
The band’s influences are as diverse as their sound, drawing inspiration from iconic acts like Sublime, which is evident in their sun-soaked melodies and carefree spirit. Meanwhile, Hardesty embraces the lyrical depth and storytelling dexterity of artists like John Prine, The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, and Sturgill Simpson, weaving heartfelt tales of life’s struggles, triumphs, and the beauty found within the chaos.
The band has graced the stages of renowned festivals such as Cali Roots, Cali Vibes, Everwild, Great South Bay, Reggae Rise Up, and the 311 Cruise, captivating audiences time and time again. The band took their passion for music to the next level by curating and hosting their own festival, Weekend at Wolfies, further demonstrating an unwillingness to shy away from elbow grease.
