KCC Productions presents Stop the Presses
July 24 at North Shore Bandshell
Stop the Presses is a female fronted four piece band that began in late 2010. Huge fans of all that is retro and vintage, the band marries old pop genres with a new approach to ska and reggae. Catchy choruses, innovative song structures, and new wave/punk rock synth/guitar leads are what makes a Stop the Presses song.
Stop the Presses is Ali Culotta on lead vocal and keys, Danny Portilla on guitar, Keko Kubat on bass guitar and Elle Forte on drums.
After releasing "Does it Still Look Pretty?" EP, Stop the Presses has both written and performed a musical by guitarist Danny Portilla, won First Place as Miami's Hard Rock Rising Winner, has launched a 7inch vinyl record featuring songs like; "Skanking Private Ryan" and "Daddy Issues Volume II" with California label the Big Ska Gamble, and just recently returned from their annual Florida/Georgia Tour.
Stop the Presses has been honored to open for ska legends The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at Sunfest 2012, South Florida's largest musical festival and other great acts like; The Slackers, The Supervillians, Reel Big Fish, The Expendables, Big D and the Kids Table and Kayavibe.
"Miami's hotter version of Gwen Stefani" Real quote by our devoted fans, we don't know if thats true, YOU DECIDE!
