The west coast of Wisconsin is not typically thought of as a hotbed of alternative reggae music. However, TUGG, hailing from La Crosse, WI has done an amazing job channeling tropical grooves and breezy melodies and has quickly become a top draw in the Midwest and beyond. Coming from a state known more for the Green Bay Packers, cold weather, and cheese, they boast an impressive resume of rubbing shoulders with reggae heavyweights. From shows with Barrington Levy and Slightly Stoopid to recording tracks with the likes of Pato Banton, Josh Heinrichs, and Outlaw Nation, TUGG continues to prove why they are a fast rising star in the alternative reggae scene. All of the bands last 4 releases have debuted in the Top 50 of the iTunes Reggae Chart. 2012’s Home Brew EP went to #2 and spent 3 weeks in the Hot 100 iTunes Reggae Album Chart. The band has toured as support for The Wailers and The Dirty Heads. Their last album “Mazes”, released in the Spring of 2013 was recorded and produced by PASSAFIRE’S Ted Bowne and debuted at #5 on iTunes Reggae.
