Regarded by many as the top interpreters of Jamaican music in the U.S. , New York City band The Slackers play what they like to call "Jamaican rock 'n' roll." Though longtime fans of Jamaican musical styles like ska and reggae, this band is equally influenced by American music traditions, including rock 'n' roll, R&B, jazz, country and blues. Resisting the common view of ska music as ever-happy and lacking depth, The Slackers don't hesitate to play with aggression or change up their music's themes, and have opened for many top bands, including Rancid, Flogging Molly and The Pogues. Caz & The Day Laborers and The Evokatones open the show. Learn More

- Check out the official music video for Jon B.'s single "Comfortable Swagg."
Songwriter, producer, vocalist, and instrumentalist Jon B. brought a distinctive focus on smooth melodies to contemporary R&B. Born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and raised in Pasadena, California, Jon B. (short for Jonathan Buck) was the son of a professor of music and a concert pianist. Influenced by music found in his grandparents' record store, he began combining the spirit of '70s soul with hip-hop-inspired productions on his 1995 debut album, Bonafide. It peaked on Billboard's R&B Albums chart at number 24, led by the Top Ten R&B single 'Someone to Love,' a duet with prime influence Babyface, and went gold. His second album, 1997's Cool Relax, continued the emphasis on hip-hop soul and featured two of his biggest singles in 'They Don't Know' and the 2Pac-assisted 'Are U Still Down.' As a result, the set sold over a million copies, thus earning it platinum certification. During the following decade, Jon B. released three more albums — Pleasures U Like (2001), Stronger Everyday (2004), and Helpless Romantic (2008). In 2012, the singer returned with Comfortable Swagg. Also an accomplished songwriter for other artists, he penned material for the likes of Maxi Priest, For Real, After 7, Spice Girls, Az Yet, and Toni Braxton.
