Toronto Ska-Punk quartet, Slamboni, has been described as “an all-inclusive beach party in a band” and Slamboni is well known for their live performance winning over crowds wherever they play. Slamboni has directly supported heavy-weights like Teenage Head, Mad Caddies and Darenots at sold-out shows throughout Toronto. Formed in 2012 in Toronto, Slamboni continues to gain fans and build momentum. Their first full-length album - Motorboatin’ - was independently released digitally and on vinyl in 2016 and received radio play on 94.9 ‘The Rock’, 89.5 ‘CIUT’ and college radio favourite ‘Ska Party Radio’. Slamboni has also been featured in the 97.7 ‘HTZ-FM’ Rock Search Top 16 of 2017. Recorded at Drive Studios by Steve Rizun (NOFX, The Flatliners), Slamboni’s ‘150’ is a collection of eight catchy, dynamic tracks that blend ska’s signature upstroke sound with influences from punk, rock and reggae. Though hailing from Toronto, Slamboni heartily embrace a coastal vibe and ‘150’ beautifully showcases the band’s wailing guitar leads, punchy drumming and Scotty’s spirited vocals. Always a fan favourite, their lively rendition of Lionel Richie’s “Stuck on You” takes the sweet ballad in an unexpected direction. Following '150' Slamboni released the Summer party tracks, 'Beers in the Fridge' and a cover of Young MC's 'Bust a Move' both showcasing Jeremiah's intense rapping prowess. Slamboni is currently in the studio and fans can expect a new release Spring / Summer 2019.

P.S. Our name comes from the sitcom 'How I Met Your Mother' when Barney rented a moving truck and furnished it like a hotel bedroom so he could pick-up girls at the bar and take them back to "his place", parked outside, within seconds.
