Slightly Stoopid is an American band based in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego, California, who describe their music as "a fusion of folk, rock, reggae and blues with hip-hop, funk, metal and punk." Slightly Stoopid_sentence_2

As a band, they have released thirteen albums (four live), with their ninth studio album entitled Everyday Life, Everyday People on July 13, 2018. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_3

The band was originally signed by Bradley Nowell from the band Sublime to his label Skunk Records while still in high school. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_4

History Slightly Stoopid_section_0

Founding, early releases Slightly Stoopid_section_1

In 1994 Slightly Stoopid was formed in Ocean Beach, California by Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald, both childhood friends, as well as high school friend and drummer Adam Bausch. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_5

Soon after, Sublime frontman Bradley Nowell discovered the band, asking them to perform in Long Beach, California at the Foot Hill Tavern. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_6

Nowell shortly after signed them to his label Skunk Records while the members were still attending high school. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_7

In 1996 the band released their first studio album, the punk-tinged Slightly $toopid (featuring a guest appearance by Nowell on the song "Prophet" – later covered by Sublime and released on their box set, Everything Under the Sun) and 1998's surf-inspired The Longest Barrel Ride. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_8

The group self-released 2001's Acoustic Roots: Live & Direct (a 40-minute acoustic set, captured live at San Diego 's 91X radio station) – the first for their own label, Stoopid Records, before issuing 2003's Everything You Need on Surfdog Records (a musical departure for the band, that sold more than 185,000 copies). Slightly Stoopid_sentence_9

Adam Bausch left the band shortly after recording and releasing The Longest Barrel Ride. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_10

Slightly Stoopid had fourteen drummers between Adam Bausch and their current drummer, Ryan 'RyMo' Moran. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_11

These drummers include: Kelly Vargas (of Sublime / Dissension), Dan Lancelot, Damion Ramirez (of Capitol Eye / Long Beach Shortbus), and Paul Vrieling (who is pictured in the background on the cover of the Everything You Need album.) Slightly Stoopid_sentence_12

After solidifying a new line-up with first the removal of Bausch, due to personal differences, then with the additions of Ryan 'RyMo' Moran (drums), as well as Oguer 'OG' Ocon (congas, percussion, harp, vocals), C-Money (trumpet, keyboard) and Dela (saxophone) from John Brown's Body, the band began to mix even more different musical styles on 2005's Closer to the Sun. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_13

The album featured collaborations with well-known reggae names such as Barrington Levy and Scientist. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_14

Closer to the Sun impressively debuted in the Billboard Top 200 and sold nearly 25,000 copies in its first two months of release. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_15

A year later, Slightly Stoopid issued their first-ever electric live album, Winter Tour '05-'06 Live CD/DVD, as well as their first-ever DVD, Live in San Diego, while 2007 saw the release of the group's fifth studio effort, Chronchitis, which debuted at No. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_16

2 on the indie charts. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_18

Additionally, the group has played sold-out shows in Australia, Japan, Guam, Portugal, Denmark, the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, and the Dominican Republic. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_20

"Without [the fans], we'd just be playing at the bar," admits Kyle. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_21

"They make it worth our while – when we go out and people are having that good of a time, the energy goes back and forth. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_22

Just a good time – we rely on each other's energy." Slightly Stoopid_sentence_23

Slightly Stoopid has played with the Dave Matthews Band, Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley and the Marley Brothers, Sublime, the Roots, The Expendables, Snoop Dogg, G. Slightly Stoopid_sentence_24 Love & Special Sauce, Ozomatli, Toots and the Maytals, Helva, and Pennywise, among others, as well as their first-ever sole headlining tour of amphitheaters in 2008, joined by their friends Pepper and Sly & Robbie featuring Cherine Anderson.
