Slightly Stoopid is a popular Ska/reggae/punk fusion band originally from Ocean Beach, near San Diego in California. Although the number of band members has changed over time, Slightly Stoopid currently consists of seven members: founders Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald, drummer Ryan Moran or "Rymo," percussionist Oguer Ocon or "OG," saxophonist DeLa, keyboardist Paul Wolstencroft and trombonist Andy Geib. The band also travels with four guest musicians: saxophonist Karl Denson, vocalists Don Carlos and Chali 2na and trumpeter Rashawn Ross. Slightly Stoopid has a host of musical influences including reggae, alternative rock, punk and jazz. The band's diverse musical influences have helped to give Slightly Stoopid a broad fan base and major music festival appeal. The prolific band has released thirteen albums, and in 2018, it released its ninth studio album Everyday Life, Everyday People after a three-year hiatus from releasing new music. Slightly Stoopid is arguably best known for its seventh studio album, Top of the World, which debuted at No. 13 on the Billboard 200 and for co-headlining the 2009 Blazed and Confused tour with rapper Snoop Dogg.
Since its inception, Slightly Stoopid has performed in a musical subgenre that is uniquely its own and lends itself well to festivals and live performance. Out of the band's thirteen albums, four are live albums recorded at various festivals across the US and abroad. In 20 years of playing, the band has been to hundreds of festivals including Lollapalooza, Coachella, Austin City Limits, The New Orleans Jazz Festival, The BeachLife Festival, the On the Water Festival, Tortuga Music Festival and many more. The band enjoys the energy and atmosphere of music festivals so much that in 2013, it launched its own Closer to the Sun annual festival that takes place in December in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, near the ancient Mayan Peninsula. Proceeds from Closer to the Sun go towards Positive Legacy, a non-profit organization that undertakes environmental and humanitarian service projects.
