Slamboni is a Toronto-based 4-piece that brings key elements of ska, punk, reggae and rock to our music and we are known for delivering catchy, feel-good anthems with tons of positive energy. Some of our specific influences include: Streetlight Manifesto, Sublime, Face-to-Face, Bob Marley and Avenged Sevenfold. You will probably notice a "SOCAL" (Southern California) vibe to us.
Slamboni cuts through the clutter in the way that we blend our influences. We keep the ‘upstroke’ sound but we mix in quick shifts to punk, rock and reggae. You can expect to want to dance and sing-along and you can expect to throw up the horns to wailing guitar leads, punchy drumming and a groovy foundation to our overall sound. We like to throw in some covers that we rework in our way, too.
Live at the venue, the Slamboni experience is accessible and engaging for all. We've been described as an "all-inclusive beach party in a band" and we're good with that! We really won the 400 person-deep crowd over recently when we opened for Teenage Head at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto.

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.
