The Scotch Bonnets (Baltimore) Eastern Standard Time (DC)

About this Event

The Scotch Bonnets (Baltimore): Punky reggae rockers from Baltimore whose infectious energy keeps the party jumping all night, The Scotch Bonnets have been bringing the heat and the good-love vibe since their debut in 2009. The crew is fearlessly lead by singer-guitarist Kristin Forbes aka Lady Hatchet, whose tunes blend classic Jamaican groves with a funky fresh approach to American singer-songwriting. The Bonnets self-released their debut album Live Ya Life in 2012 and dropped Quest in 2014, an EP done in collaboration with their legendary friend HR of Bad Brains. Released by Morphius Records, the songs were culled from sessions done recording the lead track to the label’s 20th anniversary compilation, Morphius XX. In April 2015, the band supported and backed guitarist Roddy Radiation of The Specials on a tour of the eastern states. That same month, the Bonnets released a video for their contribution to Hooligans United, Smelvis Records’ tribute to Rancid.

Over Memorial Day Weekend, the band released The District, their first 7” on Jump Up Records. They also had song released on this year’s Record Store Day (April 22) on Recutting The Crap, a Crooked Beat Records’ LP that reinterprets The Clash’s swan song, Cut The Crap. The Bonnets had the privilege of recording their track at DC’s punk pantheon Inner Ear Studio with owner Don Zientera. They also have a track on Baltimore Does Bowie, Morphius Records' upcoming tribute to David Bowie, and their second full-length album will be dropping next year. The journey is continually evolving for these reggae cats, mee-yowza!

Eastern Standard Time (DC): Put together top musicians from the Jazz and Reggae scenes, give them the recipe for the original Jamaican Ska, throw a dose of Soul in the mix and the result is Eastern Standard Time.

From their initial days as a Be Bop influenced Ska-Jazz supergroup, the band has matured over more than a decade, adding Rocksteady, Reggae, Dub, Soul, and even Spy Jazz into their repertoire.

Eastern Standard Time is a world-renowned act, with multiple tours of The United States, Canada, Europe and Russia to their credit. Their recordings have brought them acclaim from as close as their own hometown--where they were dubbed "one of Washington's best bands" by the Washington Post-- to the wider global community.

Eastern Standard Time has been featured on television and film. They can be heard in movie soundtracks and on radio stations around the world.
