Legendary California Label Skunk Records Celebrates 25th Anniversary With Performance At California Roots Music Festival

Legendary California based record label Skunk Records, the label that launched the career of groups like Sublime, Slightly Stoopid and Long Beach Dub Allstars, will celebrate their 25th anniversary with a very special performance at the 2014 California Roots Music Festival. Label founder and former Sublime member Michael “ Miguel “ Happoldt will lead an all-star band that will include members of Long Beach Dub Allstars, Slightly Stoopid, Unwritten Law, Perro Bravo and Jakob Nowell, as they perform a set of classic Skunk material for fans. The California Roots Music and Arts Festival will take place on May 23rd -25th, 2014 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, CA.

"The idea behind the Skunk Records 25th anniversary show started one night in Malibu. My band, Perro Bravo, was set to play a show with the Expendables, so I reached out to my old school homie Kevin Zinger to come out to the show and catch up," remembers Miguel. "The show was crazy, so as an encore we played 'The Timeline', which is this medley that takes you on a trip through my musical past from Falling Idols to Sublime and the Ziggens, and ends with the new material I’m working on now. Everyone went nuts and Zinger was kinda moved by this and said he thought fans would love to see us do the medley live with an all-star line-up. Flash forward a couple weeks, and Zinger was hanging out with Dan Sheehan from Cali- Roots Fest and he proposed the idea of us doing 'The Timeline' live at the festival. Dan thought it was a great way to celebrate the impact that Skunk Records has had over the past two decades and was stoked to have us do it at the Cali Roots Fest. We're excited to do this live in a big way and we've got some big things planned for the performance that will be revealed in the coming weeks."

Skunk Records was started by Miguel while he was in college for his former band The Ziggens. Shortly thereafter ‘Miguel’ linked up with Brad Nowell and Sublime and released two classic albums, 1992’s “40.Oz To Freedom " and 1993’s “Robbin' The Hood ". Throughout their 25 years in existence, Skunk Records has been home to legendary groups like Slightly Stoopid, Long Beach Dub Allstars and released some classic albums that truly embody the positive vibrations of the southern California lifestyle.
