- The Pinstripes
The Slackers have spreading their gospel of "Jamaican Rock N Roll" for 21 years
now. While they have been influenced, and even personally taught by Jamaican ska/
reggae originators, like the Skatalites and the Upsetters (Original backing band for
the Wailers) they play it with a decidedly American accent. Basically, this band is
equally appreciative of old blues, country, 60s soul, rock, and Rnb as it is of reggae,
rocksteady, dub, and Ska. It is as if the Rolling Stones or the Yardbirds had grown
up on Bob Marley as well as Muddy Waters.
