An early project of future AGGROLITES member BRIAN DIXON that also features GREG LEE of HEPCAT on vocals!
“Got ska? Got reggae? Well if not, AFTERHOURS has plenty of it to spare with their unique brand of musical charm! The idea for AFTERHOURS came about in the aftermath of the breakup of traditional ska powerhouse, SeeSpot (who have since re-united), when keyboardist Bradford Pate and guitarist Brian Dixon decided not to stop the music when the rest of the band had stopped dancing. Pate was one of the founding members & keyboardist for SeeSpot, plus he tinkled the ivories for ska band Mobtown from 1996-98. Dixon got his start with ska band Checkmate in the early ’90’s, toured with King Apparatus, joined SeeSpot in early 1997 and was a founding member of LA reggae sensations the RHYTHM DOCTORS (TKO Records). Years of involvment within the intimate LA/So Cal ska scene made the creation of a West Coast supergroup possible – one that would incorporarte their taste for jazz, latin rhythms, and big band with their true love – Jamaican ska and reggae. AfterHours was the result – with tremendous vocal performances from Greg Lee of HEPCAT, Canadian transplant and ASIAN MAN solo recording artist Chris Murray (KING APPARATUS), outstanding rhythm work from Oliver Charles (OCEAN 11), DAVID FUENTES (HEPCAT), JOEY ALTRUDA and WILLIE McNEIL (JUMP WITH JOEY), and delicious solos contributed by David Urquidi (Yeska) among others! The result: a beautiful album of toe-tappin’ ska and heart-warming reggae – mixed with swingin’ coctail jazz. Can an album be as good as this sounds? YES!
